2008 Volkswagen Rabbit Review

Urban driving has a language all of its own. And the perfect translator is the 2008 Volkswagen Rabbit. The Rabbit’s story begins where all VW stories do: under the hood. Here’s where we’ve tucked about 30% more horsepower than the previous model. The Rabbit is powered by a 2.5 liter engine that gets up to 30 Miles per gallon. This extra oomph opens gaps catches lights and gets you out of traps. The Rabbit’s simplest and most useful feature is the hatchback. It turns this from a “regular” car into a master of space. Folding the 60/40 split rear seat forward gives you over 15 cubic feet of storage space. In the trunk you’ll find a removable storage divider and even a Power outlet. The Rabbit comes standard with a 10-speaker CD stereo system. More than just powerful the stereo is smart. It can adjust volume up and down depending on how fast you’re going to help compensate for road noise. It’s also protected by the Rabbit’s anti-theft system. The vehicle alarm system is linked to the doors the hood and the rear trunk lid. So if a thief gets inside the Immobilizer system will kill the engine. The 2008 Volkswagen Rabbit now remember mind those city rules!
