@ anoni
With 1-ft-rollout it is possible (it's about 6,2-6,3 seconds 0-100 kph without rollout).

Yes, only 1 shift until 100 kph.

it is possible 5.6 sec to 60mph ?
it seems to fast for a 220hp car and fwd.
it change gears only once to 60mph ?

Well, design is a matter of taste, wont argue about that. ESP is same, so equally good. Dont agree with acceleration though, R is noticably faster


User avatar

DeDe  4y  

Better design (in and out), much forgiving ESP... and last but not least the performance: the GTi Performance is just as fast on the straightline.

@ Dede
Compared to the 2010 Golf R with 270 hp, what would be your choice? It is a bit more heavy and performance seems to be very similar however the press seems to prefer the R model.

@ DeDe: I've always liked the Golf GTI, it looks like a fast, fun little car to drive, when someone mentions hot hatchback, the Volkswagen Golf GTI is the first car that pops into my mind.
