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.
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.
Because overall everything is good.
Great gas mileage. Smooth drive. Interior is nice. It's comfortable. It's a nice size car inside and out. Drives well, it's not to fast but it's fast enough when need be.
Bluetooth. Aux. Power windows. CD player.
Just wish it had a sunroof is all.
