Does Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) in a Volkswagen make a significant difference to ride comfort?

We have a Golf GTI performance edition (2017 model) and love it to bits. The firm ride is great for the times when you want to push on. But - we find the ride is too firm/harsh when driving normally and just pottering about. We have already fitted Michelin CrossClimate Tyres which have helped a bit. If we were to change to a new GTI, does the Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) make a significant difference to ride comfort?

If you stick to the smaller 18-inch wheels, the DCC probably isn't necessary. It might be worthwhile if you want larger wheels, but a GTI on 19-inch wheels wouldn't be my choice if ride comfort is important...

I like the idea of have a warm/hot hatch for my next car but after driving a car does 40mpg in most town driving I am worried about the mpg being too low and me spending more on fuel each month. At present...
Which would be most appropriate for everyday use, a second-hand Golf GTI or a used Golf R?

Golf GTI performs well in every area, making it the consummate all-round hot hatch.
