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

Review

The R32 exhibits superiority in overall build quality, interior and exterior styling, out-of- this-world handling and braking, and a stout, naturally aspirated powerplant with power on tap at any spot in the power band. The incredible support offered by the leather Konig racing seats, the feel of the thick but small steering wheel, the accessibility of the 6 speed short throw shifter, and the incredbile exhaust note lets you know the R means business. After one drive on a twisty mountain road and it will become obvious that this autobahn bred beast is pure driving excitment.

Favorite Features

Everything. This car is as close to perfect as I can imagine. The Haldex AWD system is quite state of the art. It shifts up to 40-50% of the torque to the rear wheels under intense driving, and is a function of acceleration, braking, % throttle.

Suggested Improvements

Perhaps VWOA could have offered the Euro OEM HID headlights and navigation as an option. It would increase the price of the car, but at least it would be there for those that wan it. Performance wise, as indicated before, the car is nearly perfect.
