Performance, 0-60 in 5.8 seconds is not on par with the WRX and STI at 4.7 seconds.
Golf R is STI Pricing with GTI performance. Next.
Its not that bad, I went into my test drive expecting to be underwhelmed but I wasn't. Is it on the same level as my 06 STI was when it comes to performance, nahhhh; but its good enough given its trade off.
