This car is so awesome!!!

by BrooklynTrash04 from Brooklyn,NY on April 8, 2018

I've owned this car for about a week and everyday since has been Christmas morning. An exceptional vehicle to drive and a virtual wolf in sheeps clothing. My first brand new car and I believe I hit a home run with this purchase.

Fastest car I've ever owned.

by Bill9,mm from Tucson on April 28, 2018

I'm 71 so I don't meet the demographics for this car. But I wanted something I can get in and out of I'm 6-4 250. I want it all wheel drive and something I could see out of but most importantly I wanted a fast little sleeper

Great car, but missing options

by Golf R fan on April 24, 2018

I purchased a 2018 Golf R in April. Enjoying the car. And great possibilities for easy modification, but American buyers are short changed on the Golf R options compared to other countries. No sunroof, no front armrest storage, regular blinking rear signal lights(not Audi like) and low options on colors. No regrets on the purchase.

Great addition to my GTS

by J-P?s R from Weston Florida on June 28, 2018

I also own a 2015 Porsche 911 GTS and needed a daily driver that was fun to drive. One test drive and I was sold. Boy is this little beast fun to drive to work every morning. Amazing in the rain. This is exactly what I was looking for as second car. Love the stealth look of the R such a sleeper. :-)

Most refined and fun vehicle I've owned.

by MK7.5 Golf R from Souderton, PA on April 2, 2018

I think it's an overall great daily driver with a lot of technology and safety built in for the driver. Also, has exceptional potential t making it your own and more fun than it already has. A lot​ of smiles per gallon this vehicle provides.

Superb hot hatch

by AndrewT from St.Louis, MO on April 19, 2018

The Golf R is a premium example of a hot hatch that is understated but can keep up with the brasher alternatives from Honda, Ford, and Subaru. It is east to drive fast and safely.
