>> The VW Golf R32 has been a cult favorite; but it's a small cult. This is the R20 that will replace it more in step with the times. The R32's V6 is gone and instead there's a two liter turbo inline four making 270 horsepower, still coupled to VW's four motion all wheel drive. By using a smaller engine with a turbo, MPG has bumped up 22 percent to 27 miles per gallon while getting up to 60 miles per hour in around the mid 5's depending on whether you get a manual gearbox or a DSG automated dual clutch. Inside, things are totonic and businesslike; we've seen that improved hard drive based head unit before and generally liked it, and aside from the cheeky center exit exhaust tips, the Golf R remains what it's known for; a fast little car that gets down the road quickly with minimal ostentation. Look for it on sale in the U.S. around the middle of 2010.
