Volkswagen Golf R32
If you want a hatchback that’s almost as hot as the sun, the Volkswagen Golf R32 should be right up your street. It’s a racing inspired motor that’s absolutely insane, phenomenally designed, packed full of equipment and nothing but premium in quality. A triumph of German automotive engineering, this car drives like it’s possessed and really stands head and shoulders above the competition. Featuring high safety and reliability scores though, it can be sensible at lower speeds, but thanks to the 3.2 litre V6 petrol engines, that’s not likely to be a lot of the time!
A superbly styled motor, the Volkswagen Golf R32 looks fantastically sleek and sexy from the outside, with its lowered ride height, customised bodywork and sporty setup. The interior is excellent all round, with a hugely premium finish and absolute quality on every surface. Gear and gadget wise, you’ll spot customised alloy wheels, climate control, top of the line sound system, media connections, electric mirrors and windows, sports seats, sports suspension, airbags, driver assists, remote locking and a great deal more. Anchored to the road, the R32 is an absolute beast in the corners and never wants to give up its grip on the road; blistering in a straight line too, it’s just the ride of your life. Pay £15,000 used.
