2018 Volkswagen Golf R Wolfsburg Edition hatch review


It’s fair to presume that if the Volkswagen Golf R Wolfsburg Edition is on your cross-shopping short list, you’ll already have a good idea of the whats and whys that peg it at the top of the Vee Dub small hatchback tree.

One is outlay: at $57,990 before on-roads, it’s twice the price of a mid-spec regular Golf, the 110TSI Comfortline (now $28,990), and a 50 per cent premium above the entry point for the go-fast front-driven GTI, namely the much anticipated, soon-for-Oz three-door manual Original ($37,990). In fact, even among the all-wheel driven, red-hot Golf R neighbourhood, you can save a cool five figures by tipping into the forthcoming manual Grid variant ($47,490) rather than this all-you-can-eat Wolfsburg Edition.
