I think I would be shifting towards GTI.
Larger engine, much wider support, better transmission (DSG), and better suspension (rear).
It is, though, very popular Golf, not like Forte5 that actually is not so common. I see sedans a lot, a few Koups and a few 5s. Plus, I love the "sleeper" mode in my tuned F5.
What stops me from GTI is lack of memory seats for example. Not a big deal one would say, but very usable when cleaning car or sharing the car with wife. She drives it sometimes.
If anything else?
Veloster is a not. I dislike its shape. But more importantly it is its rear that cannot suit 2 kids (9 and 12).
I would think Focus, but they come with MT only what is a problem for my wife.
Final word - there are days, when I feel the power in the car is rough (not smooth delivery, ECU is confused how to set boost and how much power to deliver so the car kind of shoots power) and I think that my next car would be NA engine. Something with V6 or so. Also, V6 will give nicer sound and NA engines have great gurgle with CAI... what cannot be said about Turbo'ed ones.
