Ford Focus RS versus VW Golf R
When it comes to hatchbacks the US market delivers far less options than what you'd get in the Old World. And it gets a lot more scarcer if you're up for a hot hatch. Luckily Ford and VW have something to offer in that segment, and both are equally hot.
Or are they? 2016 RS is fresh, spacious and more powerful than its German counterpart. Both hot-hatchbacks are priced in the same range, and both have all wheel drive drivetrain systems. Compared to Focus RS, Golf R offers an automatic transmission option in case if you're not a fan of an MT.
Focus RS is larger and faster than the Golf R, but it's more thirsty for gas and has a smaller fuel tank.
