Fast but subtle. and still enough room to load it full of what ever you want. it has surprisingly more room in the back than than a sedan or hatch Subaru wrx. It's way more comfortable to sit it. Much more supportive seats and much nicer interior than a wrx. Lastly it's rare.

Transmission: Automatic Color:Black Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (0 reviews) I own a 4dr manual shift, black on black, bought it 4 years ago and it now has north of 67k miles. One of the few small cars that I can set the driver's seat to my comfort and then sit comfortably behind myself (I am 6'2"). It is a nimble car and fun to drive-great handling. I average about 52 mpg in the summer and about 46 in the winter. Dealer maintenance is a bit pricey but comes at 10k mile intervals. I have no trouble with blind spots or visibility-google how to set your mirrors to avoid blind spots. Good sound system, great brakes, good power, warms up quickly in the winter. New tires at 65k miles. Auto-down on all 4 windows. Have had no problems at all with this car.

Transmission: Automatic Color:Silver Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (5 reviews) Went in to look at Ford Focus or Fusion, but was disappointed at interior space, power, and handling. Saw a red VW Golf TDI sitting there and decided to test drive. Wow. About the same size on exterior, but roomy inside. Took off like a jet compared to the Ford and handled like a dream. And as a diesel, I'm getting around 40 mpg all the time with what should be a very reliable power plant. My iPhone hooks up to Bluetooth for hands-free calls and music. It's a blast to drive each day. Love it!

Description: Used 2016 Volkswagen Golf R for sale - $29,998, 23,045 miles with Auto Cruise Control, 4WD/AWD, Turbo Charged Engine, Leather Seats, Parking Sensors, Rear View Camera
Transmission: Automatic Color:Blue Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4.8 reviews) The Golf R is a great car. Subtle, but handsome looks, brilliant interior and the general feel of quality just shows everywhere. Daily driving it is comfortable, beautifully equipped and rides very well. Once you decide to give it a bit of a push and get out on some winding roads, it just completely changes. The four wheel drive system provides an astonishing amount of grip while the turbo charged 2.0L engine surges once above 3000 RPM all the way to redline. It gives you a gentle push back in the seat and it wants to get to that next corner as quick as it can. Brakes are fantastic and slow you just as quickly. Four six feet people can sit in it in comfort without issue and the interior feels more like a luxury car then hot hatch.

Perfect City Car

Perfect car for zipping around Austin. It is small on th outside so parking is easy. It has great interior room and can haul an amazing amount of stuff with the back seats folded down. Also great mileage. Averaging 38-39 around town. I get 45-46 on trips to San Antonio

Golf GL TDI

I have a 04 VW Golf TDI GL. I simply love the car the fuel economy is simply amazing (40 mpg real mileage). The car is reasonably quick (177 lb/ft of torque), it's no sports car but certainly is faster than anything that is in comparable fuel efficiency. Pros: Turbo Diesel, it is reasonably quick Very spacious inside, little bit of a squeeze for the back seats. Really great storage, I've fit a queen size memory foam mattress (folded) inside the cab. Ride is comfortable while giving firm steering. Cons: GL trim has steel wheels/hubcaps. Rear view mirror visibility is poor with the rear headrests up.

Best hot hatch going right now .

Any Golf R review will lead you to the conclusion that this is a spirited ride that leans towards the refined side. Its a perfect all weather mode of transportation with the all wheel drive , and depending on your driving style, it can be quite the sleeper when it comes to flat out getting on up the rd. Plenty of power , quiet interior, all wheel drive , this car does not lack in any areas . LOVE IT . I have been on several road trips with it , comfy and mileage around 28 on the highway , best in town mileage is 22 .
