First Drive: 2015 Volkswagen Golf R

Volkswagen is pretty much cooking up a Golf for everyone on the planet. You have the standard Golf, the diesel TDI, and an all-electric eGolf. Enthusiasts around the globe love the GTI. There's also a wagon version coming soon called the Golf SportWagen.

This, however, is the one for… us. This is the Volkswagen Golf R, and it's a turbocharged, all-wheel-drive hot hatch designed to make you a happier person. For just under $40k, you can pilot a nearly 300-horsepower five-door that also happens to have one of the (if not THE) best interior in its class.

Oh and Hans Stuck helped make sure the handling doesn't suck.

Win-win? You best believe it…

[Yeah yeah... we're a month behind on this car compared to everyone else. It takes time to edit video. So it's not the part of the first drives being published. It's still our first drive.]
