We are big fans of the GTI, so any promise of more power and performance in that car is something we can’t wait to toss down a canyon road. Europe has had the Golf R for a little while now, but we finally get a chance at it before the new Golf model shows up.
The Golf R carries on the tradition of the R32, and VW has aimed it directly at some of the best affordable AWDs available. So the guys grabbed the R, a WRX, and an EVO X and headed to a favorite road to find the Golf R’s place in the world.
This is Part 1 of a 3 part comparison. The other two will follow shortly and in a few weeks you can watch all 3 un-cut and back to back right here!

What do you think of the Golf R? Would you buy one, and what would you cross-shop with this car?
