Volkswagen Golf R32 — Car

there might be faster boy out there, but they lack the and sophistication of the R32. And there be more luxurious hatchbacks and from some rival but they don’t have the and race-bred technology of the R32.

‘R’ is Volkswagen’s high label and the moniker under former sports car racer Nissen runs Volkswagen the company’s motorsport operation has an RD and administration facility within the Head Office in Wolfsburg and just down the road in

Nissen masterminded Volkswagen victory in this year’s rally.

For a while the Golf R32 was the ‘R’ derivative in Australia, but now you can get an R36 Passat and an R50 Touareg.

As one Volkswagen expert put it: “ models are everything Volkswagen done all at once”.

Under The

Car Showroom spent a week a five-door R32 with the DSG twin-clutch automatic transmission. The glorious V6 engine delivers 184kW/320Nm and all four wheels via Volkswagen’s all-wheel-drive system.

Zero to 100 takes just 6.2 seconds.

As this R32 model retails for Entry to the Golf R32 club is the six-speed manual which has a tag of $55,490.

Volkswagen’s technological is breathtaking and in our minds, two things set the Golf R32 apart from hot hatches.

Firstly the latest of Volkswagen’s 4Motion all-wheel-drive which is governed by a Haldex wet coupling. Unlike rival Torsen differentials, the Haldex can be controlled electronically and this Volkswagen to harmonise that with the ABS anti-lock brakes, Control, Electronic Differential and Electronic Stabilisation Program. an all-encompassing control system like those used in One until the end of 2007. Secondly the turn the key and it instantly idles like an F1 car there is no ‘start-up/fire-up’it runs). And with those central-mounted tailpipes it sounds awesome.

Suspension is a MacPherson strut end and a highly-engineered four-link rear specifically for all-wheel-drive ride/handling.


A real standout for the Golf R32 Recaro seats are leather and they’re just fine. a race-bred ‘D’-shaped leather-bound wheel (adjustable for rake and and alloy pedals which all to deliver a super driving Naturally there’s lots of R32 and carbon-fibre look trim

The paddle-shifters for manual gear are beautifully-finished small aluminium which are a work of art.

Otherwise it’s the Golf as we it cruise control on the left and very convenient and it must be a somewhat mundane 10-speaker system.

Rain sensing and the coming/leaving home function for the are nice touches.


its 20-spoke Zolder 18-inch wheels, lowered ride and subtle hatchlid spoiler, the R32 doesn’t shout “Boy Book Me Now” this is a European hot hatch and it’s is beautifully crafted. Sure the odd bit of chrome on the grille and an R badge or there but subtlety is what is on about with the R rangeleave the stuff to someone else.

On The

Volkswagen Golf R32

This is the benchmark, where the bar is at. a threesome high-tech, high-performance and all geared for drivers to enjoy.

Grip levels and turn-in are as are acceleration and braking all accompanied by the of the V6 singing through those tailpipes.

We actually did some start runs with the down just so we could the V6 as it worked through the gear in split seconds thanks to the DSG doing its thing.


The hottest hot hatch deserves to satellite navigation as standard not a option. The same system as the Tiguan with the guidance reversing camera would be thanks.

The standard Golf is not spacious in the rear seat and are no miracle cures with the R32 Children under six or seven are anyone else wouldn’t a long journey back


On performance, technology, and driving dynamics the Golf R32 is the hottest hatch. It wins too in area not normally associated Volkswagen value-for-money. With the Car juniors aged only and five, we’d have an R32 in our right now, today, any it right there thank-you much!!

The tree-hugging, greenie would not be pleased, but hey we’d be fun every time we started wonderful V6.

The Competition

This is the R32 is a ‘segment-straddler’ to use car-selling jargon. for out and out fire-breathing performance, you would at the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo but it lacks the refinement, quality feel and the is a long way behind the R32 for quality of and the rest. And to compare specifications on a playing field you would to go to the TC-SST EVO which carries a RRP of against the R32’s $59,490.

Same with the Impreza STI which is a bit better on the dollars and at $64,990.

We would venture to the R32 actually gives the BMW M3 coupe a run for its and we look forward to testing an M3
