    Volkswagen Golf R (2017) Quick Review

    Facts & Figures

    Price: R647 300 (September 2017 - no options)
    Engine: 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder turbopetrol
    Transmission: 7-speed dual-clutch
    Power: 213 kW
    Torque: 380 Nm
    Fuel consumption: 6.9 L/100 km (claimed)
    0-100 kph: 4.6 seconds (claimed)
    Top speed: 250 kph (claimed)

    Pricing and Warranty

    The VW Golf R currently (September 2017) sells for R647 300 without options and the price includes a 3-years/120 000 km warranty and 5-years/90 000 km service plan. It is very comprehensively specified as standard but options include 19-inch Pretoria alloy wheels (R8 100), the Discovery Pro info-tainment system with satellite navigation (R20 200), Blindspot monitor with rear traffic alert (R3 500), adaptive cruise control with automated emergency braking (R5 000) and the Adaptive Chassis Control system with driving profile selection (R12 700).

    Verdict

    Bruiser in a tailored suit... The Golf R looks sophisticated but packs a hard punch.

    For around R650 000 (without options), the Golf R is undoubtedly pricey. Nevertheless, within the context of its abilities and rivals, it makes more sense than one may think. This is probably the ultimate expression of the fast Golf formula to date, offering nearly all the practicality of a GTI, but with even more dynamic appeal, greater performance and a cabin that knocks most of the competition for a six. On paper (and in the metal) this latest evolution looks like a subtle improvement, but the reality is that the latest Golf R does everything "better than expected", and most importantly, delivers greater driving engagement than what we've become used to from this type of car.

    Cool to see the LCD dash coming to "cheaper" cars.

    Early next year the new Polo hits SA & gets the option of the customizable digital dash.
