Honest John Awards 2018: Volkswagen Golf R takes Most Popular Performance Car Award

Published 03 May 2018

Performance Car of the Year - Volkswagen Golf R  

Praised for its sophisticated four-wheel drive system and potent turbocharged petrol engine, the Golf R is a car that clearly doesn’t need a lairy bodykit to underline its quality. All versions are family-friendly with a comfortable and practical interior that's complimented by a sizeable boot. The 300PS petrol powertrain ensures its driver is never short of performance either, while its sharp handling make it great fun to drive. 

Dan Powell Managing Editor of said: “The inconspicuous but blisteringly fast Golf R leaves its rivals in its dust when it comes to popularity at Fast, surefooted and wonderfully refined, the Volkswagen Golf R is a triumph of engineering and a worthy winner of our Performance Car of the Year award.”
