Golf V GTI vs Golf V R32

 VS 


Hello all,



Today I am going to compare Golf V GTI and Golf V R32 based on my personal experience because I used to have 2007 Golf V GTI and I own 2008 Golf V R32...



R32 pros: Powerful V6 engine (it generates more power on lower rps), quicker (launch control!), better handling (especially corners), haldex AWD (Most of the time it is FWD and whenever front wheels start skiding rears kick in and it becomes AWD) and haldex saves gas when you compare it to all the time 4WD cars. It handles snow very well!



R32 cons: Heavier than a regular Golf and Golf GTI but it makes handling much more better. On a dry road front wheels skids very very rarely. ~75 hp per liter enige... I would expect more power. R32 could use 50 more hp and become 300hp monster... And oh yes more expensive than GTI! (+ $7K-$8K) It consumes more gas... 

GTI pros: Powerful inline 4 cyclinder engine with Turbo. 100hp per liter. Light weight. Handling is good. Very good mpg. 

GTI cons: Handling is good but front wheel skids on powerful launch... Well R32 handles better than GTI. Slower 0-60 time. FWD suck on heavy snow :( 

WELL WELL WELL, THEY ARE THE HOT HATCHES!!

  1. I can't afford neither of them ;(

    But isn't 3,100 lbs pretty heavy for a car? I think mine is only like 2300 lbs.
