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


I was in the market for a fun to drive
sports car in the $30k price range. I
was going to trade in my 01 Mustang GT
which had plenty of after market go
fast parts on it. I still wanted a car
that accelerated strong but handled
better than the Mustang. I test drove
the STI and the Mits. Evo, liked them
both, although I thought their
interiors were cheap and 4 doors
doesn’t look sporty. Then I drove the
R32 and feel in love. It doesn’t have
the acceleration of the Sti or Evo but
makes up for it in build quality,
refinement and overall style. After
1000 miles I clocked a 0 to 60 run of
6.4 sec (with my Escort G-Timer) and
that was without a hard launch.

Best Features

The racing style leather Koenig seats and the dual exhaust sound our my favorite features.

Worst Features

Could use a few more horsepower.
