Either of which has nearly all the appointed ammenities of a Golf R for less. Volkswagen knows how to run a business, that much is clear in all their acquired companies over the past decade, however, they still don't know how to build a sports car for the everyday "muscle-minded" American male. It's a housewife's car, not a man's car. It's a skinny jean wearing, Jack Johnson listening car, not a Metallica shouting, wrangler jean wearing car.
