Volkswagen Golf R (2021 – present) | Expert Rating

Summary


The flagship of the eighth-generation (Mk8) Volkswagen Golf range, the Golf R is a five-door hot hatch and estate model.

Sitting above the standard Golf line-up and the performance Golf GTI model, the all-wheel drive Golf R sits at the top of the range – powered by a 315hp 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine paired with a seven-speed automatic transmission. This is over 70hp more than front-wheel drive alternatives like the Golf GTI and Hyundai i30 N, but this added power and grip comes at a price.

“It is a pricey machine these days”, Auto Express comments, alluding to the Golf R’s price tag that surpasses the £40k mark. Autocar recommends the Honda Civic Type R as it costs significantly less, and because it is more involving and adjustable on the road. What Car? offers up the Toyota GR Yaris instead for the same reasons.

The 2023 Range Rover Sport ushers in the third generation of the British brand’s most popular model. Well, its most popular model in the U.S. market, according to Land Rover. When it comes to prestige and price, the Sport is one step below the premier Range Rover, which also recently underwent a complete redesign. When it came to reinventing the Sport, Range Rover elected to design sleeker bodywork around a three-inch-longer wheelbase and, of course, add a host of new content to broaden its appeal.
