VW Golf R, VW Scirocco R, VW Polo GTI: Driving comparisons

VW Golf R, VW Scirocco R, VW Polo GTI

Great driving comparison here between the VW Golf R, the VW Scirocco R and the VW Polo GTI.

So the Golf R emerges as the highest expression of the philosophy Volkswagen first demonstrated in 1976 with the Mk1 GTI, and first imported to the U.S. in 1983 (when the Motor Trend test just got under 10 seconds for 0-60 mph). The Golf R is a magnificently useable everyday compact, with superb perceived quality and refinement. But it’s also got the heart of a sports car: agile, light on its feet, and faithful to the driver.
