It's tight and very comfortable. You can feel the road much better compared to the non-R, but don't expect a Porsche. This is still a cross over. So why pay extra for the R? Besides the design elements that are obvious, its all about the drive. This is a great car for the driver who wants to feel the road, have less body roll and tighter steering. For the passengers, they may find it a bit rigid off the highway, so if your passenger has influence over the purchase, bring them for the test drive. Your also going to have to be more careful with those 20" rims - and tires will be more expensive. If you drive a T6 and think its the same as the R. Think again. Drive it and decide.
I did not like the look of the seats with the different color inserts but it really grew on me. Debated on PCC but SO GLAD we got it. Thankful every time it rains. No fumbling with keys to get in and out of the car. Love the back up camera. Also love the 5yr maintenance and wrt - worry free.
There should be better integration between the GPS screen and the radio, etc. I think they could have put all on one screen. GPS should not be DVD based, but flash drive. No big deal to us, but just seems so last year.
