Volkswagen has produced some very quick and engaging versions of the Golf over the years, so when the company declares the latest to be the fastest Golf ever, it's a claim to be taken seriously.
Visually, it's a sleeper, with smartly centred twin rear pipes and big alloys rather than an over-the-top body kit, the main distinguishing features.
The interior dress-up is similarly low-key, with fine sports seats, metal pedals, and a sports steering wheel with subtle "R'' badging being the key differentiating features in a very well-finished cabin.
Like the R32 before it, the R is a four-wheel-drive machine which uses the superb DSG double-clutch transmission system. Unlike the R32 it is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine (the same one you'll find in Audi's S3) rather than a narrow-angle 3.2-litre V6.
While the memorable soundtrack of the V6 is consigned to history, the new R sounds sporty, due especially to the neat blipped down-shifts that the DSG delivers in both full automatic and manual paddle-shift modes.
The shift to turbo-four power provides a decisive performance advantage as well as 20% better economy. Peak power is up by 15kW to 199kW, and torque rises by 30Nm to 350Nm. These enhancements underpin a marked acceleration gain, with the 5.5 second 0-100kmh sprint time for the DSG-equipped Golf R undercutting that of the R32 by 0.8 seconds.
Weight distribution improves with the move to the new engine; whereas the old R32 always felt a trifle nose-heavy in comparison to the benchmark Golf GTI, the new R is more evenly balanced.
Thanks to this shift and the inherent traction advantage of four-wheel drive, the new Golf R outpaces the latest GTI when driven in a committed fashion
