Top-Rated Premium Compact Car Winner: 2012 Volkswagen GTI
The AutoPacific 2012 Vehicle Satisfaction Awards (VSA) draw from a survey of 75,000 new car and new truck owners in the United States through the first three months of the year. The VSA's tabulate owner satisfaction based solely on this survey input - no other criteria (outside opinions, previous road test data) are used in determining winners.
Taking the title of top-rated Premium Compact Car this year is the 2012 Volkswagen GTI. The hatchback's status as the highest-rated Premium Compact Car in the AutoPacific survey will come as no surprise to those familiar with the Volkswagen GTI's compelling blend of premium comfort, practicality and usable, real-world performance.
