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


I was going back and forth between the R32 and 2008 STI since I wanted a performance hatchback. After much angst, I decided to get the R32 - came down to I wanted a moonroof. While the car is fun to drive, it doesn't have nearly the same zip as my 2006 WRX which I still own, and find driving it more fun. The R32 is a great car to drive if you want to have fun and don't want to deal with shifting gears in traffic. Since I'm only leasing the car for 2 years, I will probably unload it and get the new STI - 305 hp!!! There is no comparison.

Best Features

Great looking interior.

Worst Features

Better nav system. 6-speed option and more horsepower to compete with the other 30k + cars like the EVO, STI, WRX (less horse but lighter and faster).
