2004 Volkswagen R32 2dr Hatchback (3.2L 6cyl 6M)

Review

For me, the R32 is all about easy-to- drive performance. Everything about the car - the steering, clutch, gas, gearshift, and brakes - requires only a very light touch. I find myself dipping into the throttle just to hear the engine, and zipping around turns just to feel the car cling to the road. The downside of this is that gas mileage suffers as a result. The brushed aluminum look of the interior and highly bolstered seats make seattime very enjoyable. On the downside, the wheels get dirty very quickly, and the interior is small for 4. Also, the car drones when cruising above 80mph.

Favorite Features

The exhaust note and handling of this car are superb. I really enjoy the steering feel, and the overall surefootedness of the car. The seats are wonderful and very, very comfortable.

Suggested Improvements

6th gear could be slightly taller for cruising and better gas mileage, and it would be nice if the headliner was made of a brighter, less "fuzzy" material - more like an Audi.
