GOLF R, THE PEOPLE'S CAR


On October 18, 2019

Maintenance Costs R 0.00 / Year

Insurance Premium Value R 0.00 / Month

Fuel Consumption L/100km

The Volkswagen Golf, the people's car, the inspiration behind every other hatchback on the market. In this review we are looking at the big daddy that is the Golf R. While every other hot hatch on the market goes for the wild and extreme look, the Golf R is much of a sleeper. From the front you find a little 'R' badge on the grille, a much deeper and opened up bumper to let in more air for the intakes. Coming to the side you find another 'R' badge just behind the front wheels, silver mirror caps, and with the rear the first thing you notice is the gigantic real quad tailpipes, and just the 'R' badge without any 'Golf' badge. The interior is classy but simple, heavily bolstered seats with once again an 'R' badge embroidered, you have gloss black trim across the dash and centre console, a cool flat bottom multifunction steering wheel, with, yes you guessed it, an 'R' badge at the bottom. Ambient lighting is only reserved for the front and sadly it's only one colour, which is blue, you can't alter different colours. Overall the interior is not much of a step over from the base models.

Now let's talk numbers, the Golf R pushes 220KW and 400NM of torque from a 2.0L turbocharged 4 cylinder, and all that power goes to all four wheels via VW's 4Motion all wheel drive system. The transmission is honestly up there with the best, it is a 7 speed dual clutch gearbox, and it is one hell of a mind reader, it feels like it is able to predict what you want to do, put foot and it changes down immediately. Apply launch control by putting off traction control, moving the gear liver to the right to engage sport mode and the car rockets you to 100 km/h in just 4.8 seconds from a stand still. I can honestly see why the Golf R is so popular, it does everything so well, there's enough room for five people, a large boot and it simultaneously drives so well. If you are looking to buy one, don't even think about it, go ahead and get it.
