    I like the idea mentioned above about getting one that will accept the pedal at a later date if you decide.
    If not an option Id start with a paddle one, used if you can find it. Just my 2 cents.
    Most everything is about like buying a new car. Soon as you buy it, drops value on a used market.

I prefer a 10 kayak but Im not on any big big lakes or ocean. I can pickup and throw in the back of my truck and launch almost anywhere. I would also highly suggest you pay good attention to the seat comfort as this makes a huge difference. Check around on YouTube, tons of good videos out now on kayaks.

    I hauled mine a good bit on top of a Toyota Yaris. Lol. I know from experience if you dont want your top ruined invest in a good carrier.

    A pedal kayak is a benefit for fishing, but it usually means heavy. If your golf gti does not have a roof rack, a light weight paddle or pedal paddle kayak is possibly your only choice.

    I have a 12' ascend sit in with a trolling motor I mounted and also a 12' pescador pilot pedal drive. The pedal drives are surprisingly easy to navigate but if I had to choose, I'm using my ascend with the trolling motor. I mainly crappie fish though so it doesn't bother me to anchor up. If I was bass fishing the pedal kayak would be more user friendly.
