VW Golf R: DSG or manual?

The default player for use in the video section of the Drupal Autocar site.

Feature 11 May 2010

The R, unveiled in September 2009, is the replacement for the R32 and has a 2 litre FSI turbocharged engine which spits out 267bhp.

VW offer both a manual and DSG gearbox option for the R and claim 0-60mph times of 5.5 and 5.7 seconds respectively.

Steve Sutcliffe puts that claim to the test.

I love the way the Golf R

I love the way the Golf R sounds when you’re just pushing it. Smile The whoosh of the turbo masking the slightly buzzy engine, while letting off quickly brings a hint of popping fuel on the overrun Smile

great car worth every penny!

Hi!

Did he notice it was a little bit wet there? Smile In some dry conditions the Golf will easily find those 0.5 sec for that manual!

Brilliant - Opinions clearly expressed across a wide range of disparate vehicles and testing locations. First class Steve

So different from the Range Rover tested on the Cobham track (It was the Cobham track wasn't it?)
That was not a good vehicle to test on the limits.
