2016 VW Golf R – A wolf in sheep’s clothing

What’s not to like about this hot hatch? 292HP, 6-speed manual or 6-speed dual-clutch automatic, all-wheel-drive, 0 to 60 mph in under 5 seconds, 155 mph top speed–on the track only please.

And on the more practical side, seating for 5, a big rear trunk, and driver-assistance safety features that cost some extra money but can save you lots more as well as from possible injury.

Read my thoughts right here on this pocket-rocket with lots of appeal.
