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.
Golf R. stop debating and get it!

It's a great hot hatch with great speed great looks and great sound. 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.
so much better then the competition
2013 Volkswagen GolfRod - San Antonio, TX09/21/2014
Looks great, composed ride, upscale German interior, great handling, quiet, sporty transmission, responsive engine, and comfort. This car got higher ratings than many luxury cars in Consumer Reports and US News. I had another car picked out and ready to buy at Carmax and decided to test drive the Golf at the last minute. I decided to buy the Golf instead after one mile. I have owned BMWs and Porsches before and the Golf has some of their German personality. It is not just a German Corolla.
