2018 VW Golf R VS 2018 Skoda Octavia RS 245
2018 VW Golf R:
Volkswagen's given its seventh-generation Golf a bit of a mid-life refresh. Now all of the range gets slightly updated front and rear fenders and a tweaked cabin. The infotainment system is now a super slick touch screen (with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto), and it works as well as you'd hope. Not laggy, not slow. It's all very dependable and Golf-ish. Volkswagen's given its seventh-generation Golf a bit of a mid-life refresh. Now all of the range gets slightly updated front and rear fenders and a tweaked cabin. The infotainment system is now a super slick touch screen (with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto), and it works as well as you'd hope. Not laggy, not slow. It's all very dependable and Golf-ish. The tech works, then. Good. But there's more to the Golf R than toys. In European trim, it comes with 310 horses and 280 pound-feet of torque. Get yourself a six-speed stick, and it'll hit 62 mph from rest in 5.1 seconds, but go for the new seven-speed dual-clutch DSG and you'll hit the magic number in 4.6. As is the way with high-powered German cars, its top speed is limited to 155mph. In reality, that's more than you're ever likely to need, so no great shakes. It's the Golf R's acceleration that you'll fall for. A 2.0-liter turbocharged four cylinder may not sound like much, but it packs a heck of a punch. Twinned with the DSG 'box, it simply flies. Alarmingly so, actually. Performance Golfs of old have always been swift -- look at the original Golf GTI onwards -- but the 310-hp R feels like it's in another league. Volkswagen's hyper-hatch lacks the power of the Ford Focus RS and the Audi RS3, sure. But stick the car in Race mode and its gearbox, dampers, steering and motor set themselves to extra angry and turn the wee Golf into a raging beast. It's a wonderful surprise, and probably the reason you rarely see a Golf R being driven below the speed limit in the wild...
