Enthusiast Showdown: VW Golf R Vs. BMW M235i

Comparison

Chris Harris does the driving.

Chris Harris returns for another all-too-brief review of two of the best all-round enthusiast cars money can buy. The VW Golf R will be the most powerful Golf ever sold in the US when it hits showrooms next year. Based on the acclaimed seventh-gen Golf, power comes from a 290-hp 2.0-liter turbo-four, with the R sporting some unique styling traits and awesome handling. In the BMW M235i, we have one of the best entry-level luxury sports cars on the market today.

We’ve seen it in action countless times, and can’t get enough of its 321-hp turbocharged inline-six. So is better than the range-topping Golf? Check out the comparison and let us know which you’d prefer parked in your driveway.
