Good afternoon. Welcome to McDonald’s.
May I take your order, please? Sure.
Can I have two strawberry milkshakes, please. It’s not really a pretentious car,
but it does have a horsepower of 270. 270! There are two problems with this Golf R. The first is that the first three/ four pages of
its press release were about its predecessor, the Golf R32. That it’s faster, has more torque, is more economical….
and it makes me wonder; what happened? What went wrong that four pages of a press
release needed to be devoted to it. It makes sense in a way. We all remember the R32
as it sounded like the best Golf ever. 6 cylinders, 3.2 liters. And this one?
4 cylinders, 2 liters, turbo. More powerful, faster…
and maybe even a little more economical. The second problem has to do with the gear box in this car.
The DSG box. And because Volkswagen really wants this car to be economical, it automatically switches to sixth gear. We’re now driving 70 km/h and it’s in its sixth gear. That means that, when accelerating, your granny’s Golf+, 1.4, automatic, has a faster feel to it than this one. For a little while nothing happens. There’s this frustrating moment when you think; hello,
this is supposed to be the fastest Golf of all times! It takes a little while to warm up,
it’s a turbo engine, it just needs some time. And then you find out that it’s
actually quite a fast car. But it often doesn’t feel like that. I can’t really help feeling like I’m mostly
just driving a much faster version of the Golf GTI. But it hasn’t entirely convinced me yet. I did get a lot of attention from a few other
Golf GTI drivers, who all thought: Wow, that’s a cool car! It does look great, they did a good job on that. But… there’s more to life than just appearance.
We do look for more in a car. Not a whole lot more… it’s just like with women.
They must be extremely good looking. She shouldn’t be really stupid. Just a little bit…
And she shouldn’t contradict what you’re saying too much. As long as she understands that if something costs
8 euro and she pays with 10 that she should get around 2 euro change. If that’s too much to ask then it’s not going to work. I had an enlightening moment yesterday evening.
I had dropped someone off… And I had to take a certain short route back,
with a few roundabouts in it and a few turns… And then I noticed that this car is not only very fast,
but also has a quite entertaining chassis. I accelerated fully on the roundabout and then
took my foot off the accelerator to see what happens. And what happened was that the back of the car
swayed along naturally And I thought: hey, I hadn’t noticed that
in another Golf before. In the end this car may have a little more
depth than you might expect. It is actually an amazingly fast car.
It can go 250 km/h. But, from now on I will only mention it if it can’t,
because it has become a normality. Speeding up to 100 with a manual takes 5.7 seconds,
and with this DSG it should be able to in 5.5. That is quite fast, of course. The 4motion of the car has improved compared
to the previous generation. You used to need wheel spin and then it nearly
threw backwards because of the torque. Now it does it much earlier due to
the influence of ESP, etc. But in reality, as it normally is with a 4 wheel drive,
under a horsepower of 500 you don’t really notice that a bit. You always have traction. In Holland I prefer to have some wheel spin at times And having to go to the tire dealer because the
profile of the tires is gone. Is this car a must-have? It kind of depends
what competitors you compare it with. If you compare it to an Audi S3 or Ford Focus RS
then it’s a bit cheaper, 47 grand… A DSG or other additional items would make the
price go up a little, of course. Compared to those cars it’s cheaper.
But a Ford Focus is a bit cooler and more exciting. But if you compare it to a Golf GTI or Megane RS
then it’s quite expensive. A little more fun to drive,
but really only a little. But, this car is always equipped with LED rear lights.
So that’ll be a guaranteed selling point. It actually cannot be beaten. Yuck, this milkshake is disgusting.

  1. This is going to be one super popular car, no news on pricing yet but feel free to check out the site I just launched golf-r-forum . com its for Golf R enthusiasts in North America we will be posting the latest news on there as well.

  2. @botilde608 FUCK RACIST PEOPLE
    Get over it! Be fucking happy there are subtitles you fucking moron. If you don't like it; GTFO

  3. @hatakashi1900 one reason I'd certainly not consider this car. Sure there's not a manual avail in certain countries? I'm pretty sure there is.

  4. i just bought a Golf R and my previous car was an RX8. i love this car so much. it feels like it will just stick to the road and the power when accelerating is amazing. the sound is great as well. steering very precise. i love it so much.

  5. @rock3tcat Thanks.. never noticed that (usually watch on my iphone). Good video.. I'd rather a Subaru Impreza WRX though I think.

  6. @taypuc31 because it has the same 2.0T as a GTI so they are selling an underpowered GTI to the public, so if you think about it the 3.2L VR6 was just as underpowered that they put in the R32, or hell even the 2.8L i have and i get 30+ mpg cruising around and it sounds so much better then the 2.0T and if you look at the available turbos for the 3.2L or the 2.8L they can easily get 500+whp so it has the massive ability to tune rather then a 4 pot with lots of turbo lag

  7. In the past 10 years volkswagen has produced nothing in terms of Innovation and Style.Volkswagen thinks people are stupid.

    Volkswagen in german means ` Refried car , that uses chunks of a previous car in the platform`

  8. @jjbarbados why change something if it is very good and practical? look at french manufactures

  9. @ccsantony Well.. it is that this guy speaks a little bit to fast and uses a lot of difficult phrases and words. The dutch language is quite entertaining and fun if you control it.

  10. I like your reviews…subtitles dont bother me…i'll leave you with the only dutch word i know….kaneel…..aka cinnamon..

  11. @Delev87 Not really, look at the R32 2 years after it released, they only sold 1500 in the US, and there wasn't enough for the demand, so, they heyld their value plus some. I expect the same thing to happen with the Golf R.

  12. @ccsantony Top Gera Pfffff, this is heaps better than the acting, skit based bullshit reviews on top gear! 😀 If a car is FWD and can't power slide clarkson says its rubish.. just for that reason, he is a muppet.

  13. the 2009-present Volkswagen Golf is assembled in
    Wolfsburg, Germany
    Changchun, China
    Jakarta, Indonesia
    Pekan, Malaysia
    Solomonovo, Ukraine

  14. Not only is this guy a sexist troglodyte, but he has no taste in food or cars. And BTW… Hey Moron! Cojak wants his jacket back. Loser.

  15. Ik snap je niet helemaal? de Golg R heeft betere koppel, meer vermogen, is sneller en noemmaar op, maar je zegt dat hij 'saaier' is dan de R32 omdat hij 3cilider is en een 3.0 heeft? 🙂 Op welk vlak is hij dan 'saaier' als de r32?

  16. @thowmaz Misschien beter opletten? de Golf R heeft een 2.0 TSI(4 cilinder) motor terwijl de R32(Golf 4/5) een 3.2 liter VR6 24klepper (6 cilinder) heeft, beide dus geen 3 cilinder, daarnaast geeft de R32 een roffel waar je kippenvel van krijgt, vooral met een aftermarket uitlaat of zelfs al de flappermod, en met aanpassingen in het inlaat traject al helemaal.
    Maarja, milieu normen hebben ervoor gezorgd dat er geen VR meer inzit 🙁

  17. This guy is solid, tells it how it is. Unlike many youtube car review channels (I'm talking to you American car mags) that are too afraid to point out the negatives about the auto. They are too afraid of losing advertising money from car companies. Great review m8.

  18. @mrzazzaable Still the language bashing? I somehow understand it, when the reviews from autoblogger are so great, the only thing to bash is the language i guess.

  19. Then go watch some other youtube thingie maybe if you can't stand it? And btw, how do you think English sounds to other pps? You think that English is perfect? Go out and learn something about the world maybe? Americans… /ignore.

  20. het is beter dat die optrekt als een oma want dat bespaard je een fortuin aan benzine en niet iedereen rijd altijd hard ik zelf rij regelmatig wel hard maar soms wens ik ook dat me auto gwn minder verbruikt puur omdat die gwn teveel kracht heeft zodra ik de gas indruk hinderlijk als je af en toe rustig aan wilt doen… omdat die perse veel pk heeft wil niet zegge dat het nodig is altijd hard te rijden tenzij je voor regering wilt werken en dagelijks boetes wilt betalen wat ik momenteel heb.
