2008 Volkswagen R32 2dr Hatchback AWD (3.2L 6cyl 6AM)


Over the years I have owned or purchased a number of performance vehicles, a short summary: 1997 BMW M3, 2001 BMW M Coupe, 2003 Honda S2000, 2006 Porsche Boxster S. I do have to say the R32 doesn't quite hit the handling and performance of some of these cars, but it does something none of them could do (with the exception of the 97 M3) and that is provide performance and practicality. It certainly beats the M3 in bad weather because of AWD, but in pure head banging acceleration, you won't get it with the R32. What you will get is manners, knowing that the car in under your control, not the other way around, which happens when people buy too much car for their capability. The R32 is great!

Best Features

The seats are very supportive, engine sounds like it wants to be your friend, not afraid to speak up. The handling fits in that "go cart" area, the DSG is unbelievable. Everyone knows this car is based on the Rabbit, but that's like comparing an Audi A4 with and Audi S4, there is none!!!!

Worst Features

The navigation system is difficult to navigation and program. It is not intuitive, get rid of it and work with Garmin (no I don't work for Garmin.
