Loving VW Golf R
Had 2 GTI’s before this car. Loved them and decided to go for even more bang. It’s more than I need but super fun to drive. The tech on it is great and I enjoy driving this car. The suspension is sporty so you do feel the road, which I like. But avoid potholes.

Volkswagen Golf R vs. the competition

2018 Volkswagen Golf R

2018 Ford Focus RS

2018 Ford Focus RS

Volkswagen Golf R vs. Ford Focus RS

Much like the Golf R, the RS throws just about all of the performance and features available from the Focus lineup into a screaming hatchback design. The RS dominates the Golf R in terms of power; with the RS' 350 horsepower compared to the Golf R's 292 hp, it's no contest. Still, the RS is an edgy design, inside and out. Some drivers will prefer the Golf R's restraint.

Compare Volkswagen Golf R & Ford Focus RS features

Volkswagen Golf R vs. Honda Civic

The Civic Type R Touring is a sublime blend of power, handling and light weight. The Civic Type R is the most balanced of this group, a fast car that's easy to drive both slow or fast. The Type R lacks the all-wheel-drive grip of the Golf R or the Focus RS, which would cause it some problems on a racetrack. Out in the real world, you'll never notice.

Compare Volkswagen Golf R & Honda Civic features

Volkswagen Golf R vs. MINI Hardtop 2 Door

Forget the Mini's cute and chipper image; this is the Mini gone bad. With pint-size power, the John Cooper Works edition is the Mini Cooper at its meanest. Unfortunately, it'll go hungry in this class since its 228 horsepower pales in comparison to the Golf R's 292 hp. The Mini JCW is, like the Honda, a front-wheel-drive machine, lacking the bite of its VW and Ford rivals.

Volkswagen's legendary GTI is credited with introducing America to the hot-hatchback phenomenon, and the 2018 VW Golf R is a hot-rodded version of it. The Golf R has an even more powerful engine, all-wheel drive, and a suspension tuned for maximum grip and response. This is a serious performance car that will get your pulse racing, yet it has all the comfort and practicality associated with the Golf, which — though not terribly popular in America — is one of the world's best-selling cars.

At the heart of the Golf R is Volkswagen's venerable 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, but not in the same form to which you may be accustomed. The Golf R's version is hypertuned for 292 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. Both a six-speed manual and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission are offered.

We've clocked the Golf R to 60 mph in a very impressive 4.6 seconds — just over 1.5 seconds quicker than we've seen in the GTI (and when talking about 0-60 mph times, 1.5 seconds is akin to 1.5 hours). EPA fuel economy estimates are 25 mpg combined (22 city/29 highway) for R with the new seven-speed automatic.

The Golf R has the suspension to back up that engine. With all-wheel drive to boost the grip, the Golf R is incredibly quick and responsive through the turns, and driving it fast is relatively easy and a lot of fun. The adaptive suspension ups the ante significantly, and though the steering is a bit lightly weighted for our tastes, switching to Race mode improves the feel significantly. Braking is excellent, although the standard-fit summer tires will need to be changed out for winter driving.

Most cars with the Golf R's abilities are unsuitable for day-to-day driving, but the Golf R is the exception to the rule. The no-nonsense dashboard is smartly trimmed and easy to use, leather upholstery comes standard, and there's plenty of headroom so you can sit up properly. The Golf R has a perfectly usable back seat, plenty of cargo space, and useful driver aids, including adaptive cruise control and forward collision warning with automatic braking and pedestrian detection. The Golf R comes exclusively as a four-door, making it a great choice for family duty. You can't say that about a Corvette.

If there's one drawback to the Golf R, it's the price — the bump over the GTI is significant, and many potential buyers will have to ask themselves if so much performance is really necessary. Volkswagen sells the Golf R as a four-door hatchback in a single, full-featured trim level. With such an easy choice, let Edmunds find you the best deal on a 2018 Volkswagen Golf R.
