What Car? says...
Is the Volkswagen Golf R a sizzling hot hatch or estate car, or an out-and-out performance car that just happens to be wrapped up in a practical body? It’s a genuine question, because this latest Golf R is indecently powerful and savagely quick.
What it's not, though – whether you go for the hatchback or estate version – is inexpensive. Indeed, if you think the best hot hatches are all about cheap thrills, you might be taken aback when you see the price.
