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


Others have described the performance
attributes of this hot hatchback. Given
the acceleration potential, to see gas
mileage in the mid-twenties is
remarkable. Also, the ride comfort is
great, factoring-in the phenomenal
handling limits.

Best Features

Performance is near that of the 2.7 liter base Porsche Boxter. The sedate packaging of the black or silver paint jobs allow the vehicle to blend with typical vehicles (which it emphatically is NOT).

Worst Features

Set the Haldex AWD to have a rear-drive bias (ala Porsche AWD cars). Including a spare tire would add more security on out of town trips. The availability of the grey interior would be nice in hot climates, although the black interior is very traditional for a sporting German car
