2008 Volkswagen R32 2dr Hatchback AWD (3.2L 6cyl 6AM)
Review
Coming from an 06 GTI, I am not sure if I should have moved to an R32. It has everything the enthusiasts want - incredible road grip, throaty exhaust, V6 power, and AWD. But, the zip (even with lag) of the GTI's 2.0T was great for me. The premium price for the exclusivity of owning one of 5,000 is a bitter pill to swallow, but the car does everything the manufacturer promises and more. Because of the power and AWD, the car literally sucks gas. I feel like I am driving an SUV when I have a compact car. Mileage has been about 19-20 in mixed driving. My GTI pulled at least 27 mpg.
Favorite Features
Exhaust sound, limited option selections (practically sold as loaded), handling (can turn on a dime and great accident avoidance), white and blue illumination for the gauges.
Suggested Improvements
Metal dead pedal like the GTI, fog lamps like the GTI, available Dynaudio, something to distinguish the seats from the GTI like blue stitching and an embroidered R instead of the pressed R and better gas mileage.
