I just happened to stop by a dealer today to take a look at a RTL and I walked away impressed. I have a Ford Focus ST and with child seats it gets tight. The G2 could easily take the child seats and leave plenty of room for the front seats. Also this had plenty of storage space on the front doors that I currently don't have now. I will definitely be buying one later this year.

Coming from a 2015 GTI here! I love it too, but I need more space to haul stuff. I looked at a Ford focus ST, but the GTI actually has pretty good leg room, and it's pretty "civilized" to drive on a day to day basis. The torque and HP are way underrated too. I'll miss mine, but the G2 is a better fit for me and my family.

I'm moving to the RL (G1 or G2, haven't decided yet) from a BMW X3. I didn't want to lose the car-like handling but I need way more room and hauling capacity.

Having never owned a RL G1 (only been in and driven friends G1s), I'm not feeling the same regrets that many G1 owners seem to be having with what's in or not in the G2.

I'm a hatchback lover and had a MK4 GTI for 10 years before the ST. They will be missed but the G2 will make the pain go away quickly.

Honda may have hit it for people that are coming form cars and SUVs that just want a box. Why cant they just build another truck. You guys will enjoy it for your needs no doubt.

I traded in an X3/Silverado WT pair for my G1 RL almost a year ago. I was tired of maintaining three vehicles and wanted something that could replace both the pickup and CUV. It was hard to give up the X3 as it had a heated steering wheel and head-up display while the G1 RL I bought doesn't even have heated seats or an outside temperature display. Much to my surprise, though, the RL is so goldilocks "just right" that I haven't missed the X3 features at all. Go figure! My RL is so right for me that I haven't yet decided when--or if--I'll upgrade to the more civilized G2.

Oh, and also related to this thread: my 3rd vehicle? A 2012 GTI! No freaking way am I giving that up anytime soon!
