2007 Volkswagen Rabbit Review
This review was written when the 2007 Volkswagen Rabbit was new.
The 2007 Volkswagen Rabbit offers solid performance at an affordable price, and a wide array of standard equipment and amenities. The majority of reviewers say the Rabbit is fun to drive. Edmunds says, "The reincarnated Rabbit is a charmer, offering upscale features (such as heated seats and mirror-mounted turn signal repeaters) not usually seen in this segment, as well as that solid feel on the road that seems to be a birthright of German-engineered cars."
AutoWeek reports that the "revival of the Rabbit name brings numerous upshots for VW, from striking a chord with fans of the original and opening endless marketing opportunities to lure young consumers to buy the brand," and adds that "the most important thing is that the Rabbit is a promising all-new car." U.S. News reviewer Rick Newman notes that the 2007 Volkswagen Rabbit "races, thanks to a thumping 150-horsepower, five-cylinder engine that constitutes a big heart for a small car." sums it up by calling the Rabbit a "lively and fun to drive" car, "with clean Euro styling, tight Euro handling, and a richly trimmed but tastefully simple interior."
Reviewers find the 2007 Volkswagen Rabbit has a comparable price tag to other cars in its class. IntelliChoice gives the Volkswagen Rabbit an "average" overall value rating based on its total cost of ownership.
The 2007 Volkswagen Rabbit is available as either a two-door or as a four-door model. Both models utilize a 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine with your choice of a five-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission.
