My mom has one and I've driven it a couple of times. Coming from the GTI, I think the engine in it is pretty good, and overall, the cabin is spacious and very big. We pretty much do everything we want with it. So far, everything is looking good and no repairs of any kind. We've had it for over 2.5 years now. It is a good looking car imo, and very good $/quality. Go test it, I'm pretty sure you will like it!
Cabin is bigger than the X1 fyi...
