    From what I remember the mk5 Golf GTI was rated higher in every review I read over the VXR.

    Yet you just said this one (mk6) doesn't compare to the VXR?

    It might have less power but if the mk6 is anything like the mk5, it'll handle better than the VXR.


    Before anyone says, yes I've driven both. However the GTI isn't as good at handling as an ST.

    But we're all allowed opinions.



    Side note: Why would anyone buy a GTI now though, the Scirocco will have taken a huge chunk of it's market IMO, apart from those who need a 5dr sporty hatchback.

    is there a market for 5dr sport hatches ? lol

    i can't see the point either go for a 3dr or a saloon
    if its for ppl with kids ... may aswell just get a sports wagon/estate as we all know .. children grow bigger very quickly and theres only so many buckets and spades a hatchs boot can take lol

    the Scirocco is king of the vw s tho ... just looks so much better than the golf
    plus with the new mk6 it just looks like its playing catch up to the Scirocco with its doppleganher front end ......
