What alternatives should I consider to a used Volkswagen Golf R hatchback?

The Honda Civic Type R is a fantastic machine. It handles brilliantly, yet is surprisingly comfortable and easy to live with. It’s practical, and fantastically enjoyable to drive.

The BMW M140i offers staggering performance, its engine sounds great and the infotainment system is first class. You can have it in three or five-door forms, and its eight-speed auto and rear-wheel drive handling add to the pleasure of driving this car.

Overview

With superb performance and four-wheel drive, the VW Golf R is one of the quickest hot hatches in a straight line, and an excellent used buy.

  • Very quick
  • Comfortable and refined
  • High-quality interior
  • Expensive to buy
  • Some rivals are more fun to drive
