EVO vs Golf R

The 2012 Volkswagen Golf R and 2012 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution MR, would at first glance, seem like fierce rivals. I mean they both pack similar power; the EVO 291-hp and the Golf R 256-hp, however when it comes to price the EVO MR simply heads toward the stratosphere. For comparison, the Golf R is priced at around $37,000, whereas the EVO is around $45,000! That’s a huge number for any car, but whereas the Golf R’s price can be somewhat justified by a wonderful ride and stellar interior, the EVO MR is simply a junkie econo-box with a big engine and DCT gearbox. On the track though things change. You see this is where the EVO shines and the Golf R falls dead thanks to VW killing it with all the electronic nannies. Honestly, I’ve driven them both and if I were going to spend 35k on a new car, I’d go right to my Ford dealer and buy a 2013 Mustang GT with the track pack.

Sorry Volkswagen and Mitsubishi, but you still need to work a bit harder.

    I have a 2011 GSR and am pretty satisfied with it. The interior leaves a lot to be desired but I knew that going into it. It’s not like you buy the car and then all of a sudden realize 5 days into the purchase the interior is crap.

    i loooove the golf R but i agree if you cant turn of the t/c its not worth crap. (thank god i live in europe) but i dont get why there isnt one car manufacturer that makes an option to remove the t/c and ABS all together… i would and id even be willing to pay extra for it
