VW's 2008 R32 looks vaguely like the Rabbit and GTI on which it's based, but there are significant mechanical differences between the cars. The 250-horsepower V6 elevates the VW to compete with compact performance cars like the Subaru WRX and Mitsubishi Evolution, and with its compact overall dimensions it's very city-friendly.
The Volkswagen R32 returns for 2008 after a two-year absence, with an overall package that's similar to the previous-generation R32 offered in the U.S. for 2004 and 2005. This go-fast sporty hatchback based on the Rabbit and GTI is a limited-volume vehicle--only 5,000 are going to be imported.
A 250-horsepower, 3.2L V6, along with a full range of performance hardware to match the added power, is what gives the 2008 Volkswagen R32 its name and separates it from the Rabbit and GTI. The V6 is matched to the six-speed 'DSG' automated manual transmission, which comes with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. Power is delivered through a 4Motion all-wheel-drive system that normally sends 50 percent of power to the front and rear wheels but can send up to 75 percent to the rear wheels when needed.
