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.
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 .
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.
