235i vs Golf GTI/R

I know hatchbacks aren't everyone's favorite. Personally, I love the look and design of the VW. But how do these two vehicles measure up spec and price wise?

Golf R starts at 35k makes about 256hp.
Golf GTI starts at 24.2k and puts out 200hp

They are both FWD cars. The haldex system in the R is FWD most of the time.

so basically for the Golf if you want 50 more horse power you will have to pay about 10,000 for it to upgrade to the Golf R? that is ridiculous lol

Not a fan of the hatchbacks or the four wheel drive haldex system. I wouldn't exactly compare the two.

Aside from the rest of the euro hatches, I'll admit that the Golf is the better looking one out of the bunch.

its the better looking and even the better performing one at the moment, it's a great car, just watch any video review of it and you'll see.

my opinion..... a 235i with the M Sport line kit looks galaxies better than a Gold GTi. Without the M Sport line kit....the GTI will score more points.

It is pretty ugly compared to the 235i.

And the interior on those.. i'll pass.

It just keeps getting worse The exhaust pipes coming from factory stick out more than it really should the shapes and curves are too bold. Not my cup of tea. But then again this is just a volkswagen, you can't compare that to a bmw.

Curves... What curves all these flat semi round panels on the golf can't compare to the 2 series what so ever. Audi's A3 sedan better bring something to the table if the interior is anything like the golf r they already lost.
