Two weeks ago I took a friend car shopping and he ended up getting an Abyss iA. I was so taken with it that I went on a couple test drives later that week and ended up trading my 2011 VW GTI for a sterling silver automatic iA. I love this car. It's such a great car for just normal driving. Nimble and lightweight. Eager and smooth engine. Reminds of the cars I used to drive in my youth. Just enough car, nothing extra. Efficient, frugal, sensible. A joy to drive. The GTI was all wrong for American city driving. Stiff ride. Clunky DSG. Hot in the summer. That car needs an autobahn. Great at high speeds or on a track. Plus it was out of warranty and I didn't want to deal with potential repairs. Got a good trade in and got new car for some change.
