Over the years Volkswagen’s Golf has become the staple of the C-segment and has, arguably, become the benchmark for any new vehicle that is set to stake a claim within this group. With its combination of solid build quality, brand cachet and a strong turbocharged four-pot engine, the Golf 1,4 TSI is undeniably one of the best in the segment. Can Opel’s equivalent match the credentials of its German sibling? I recently spent some time in the turbocharged 1,4-litre model to see what it’s about.
Which of the current Volkswagen R models would get your vote?
