The Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport has taken top spot for the most viewed reviews on Autocar for the week ending 27 November. Read on to find out what joined it in the top five.
The hottest Volkswagen Golf GTI to date celebrates 40 years of the front-wheel-drive hot hatch from Wolfsburg.
This GTI, the Clubsport has the same turbocharged 2.0-litre four cylinder engine as the standard car (which has 217bhp) and the Performance variant (227bhp), but here it puts out 263bhp. This rises to 287bhp when the overboost function ups the turbo’s pressure from 1.9bar to 2.1bar. That's only 8bhp less than a Golf R – albeit for only 10 seconds.
This 40th anniversary version of the iconic Volkswagen has received a number of styling changes, which is said to improve the downforce of the car, while the designers have also been busy paying homage to the 1976 original as well.
The Audi R8 V10 Plus has finally landed on UK shores. This 601bhp, 205mph behemoth uses a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox and the result is profound, but is it a five-star car?
Read on to see if the V10 R8 Plus can remain composed on broken and pockmarked UK roads.
The perfect combination of practicality, power, performance and economy is encapsulated in the Alpina D3 Biturbo Touring. This 3 Series-based estate produces 345bhp from its six-pot twin-turbocharged diesel engine, capable of 52.3mpg and a top speed of 170mph.
