Volkswagen Golf R
The VW Golf R is the manufacturers hot hatch offering. It’s the range topping spec available and has built itself a reputation thanks to its potent power and sporty handling. Being the top of the range model available, not only does the Golf R have all the interior tech you’d expect, it also adds four wheel drive for more grip which improves handling especially in corners. The Golf R takes 4.5 seconds to get from 0- 60 mph and with launch control as standard with the automatic gearbox you’ll be able to put that to use, should you need to have a drag race on your commute to work.
Looking to the interior and as standard the Golf R gets a high def 8.0 inch touch screen as standard however there is a 9.2 upgrade available. The rest of the interior feels as well built and comfortable as the rest of the Golf range. You can’t go wrong really. There are also front and rear parking sensors with the option of a rear view camera to be added.
Space is good through the Golf range, with at least 4 large adults able to fit comfortably within the vehicle. 3 passengers in the back is possible, especially if there is a shorty on the journey. Boot size is good but can be extended by lowering the rear seats, possible thanks to the 60/40 split. Release your inner boy racer with the VW Golf R, capable of being a family run around and a hot hatch at the same time. Best of both worlds? We certainly think so!
