When a regular Golf GTI isn't sufficiently extreme, the VW Golf R steps up to the mark.

This fantastic car comes with an amazing spec, bursting with power and poise. This vehicle benefits from having full service history, 2 keys, ACC - Adaptive cruise control with front assist, distance monitoring, city emergency brake and speed limiter, air conditioning - 2 zone electronic climate control, automatic post collision braking, Bi-Xenon headlights and headlight washers with LED daytime running lights, bluetooth telephone preparation, carbon decorative inserts in dash and door panel, CD/MP3/WMA, USB and SD card reader, aux-in, DAB, driver profile selection, ESP with EDL + ASR, Isofix preparation for 2 rear child seats, lowered sports suspension, MDI with USB/iPod connection cables, ultrasonic front and rear optical and audible parking sensors, XDS plus electronic differential lock.

If you want a fast car that's also very discreet, then the Volkswagen Golf R is well worth a look. It's for sale as the flagship of the Golf range, and slots in above the Golf GTI in the line up. All cars come with a 2.0-litre TSI turbocharged petrol engine packing 296bhp, with power going to all four wheels via VW's 4MOTION four-wheel drive system.

As a result, the Golf R has ballistic performance and plenty of grip to make it a fantastic all-weather performance car. And yet, to look at, it could easily be mistaken for a diesel Golf in sporty R-Line spec. For some buyers that's a huge bonus, putting the fastest Golf ahead of lairy-looking rivals such as the Mercedes-AMG A45, Ford Focus RS, Audi RS 3 Sportback and Honda Civic Type R.

In many ways, the Golf R is something of an unsung hero in the Golf range. Subtle colours and a subtle bodykit contribute to that, while the only real clues to the car's potential are its 18-inch wheels, lowered suspension and four exhaust tips poking out of the rear bumper. This really is the definition of a Q-car – a vehicle that doesn't draw attention to itself, but offers searing pace that will surprise passengers and other road users alike.

Blistering performance, agile handling and rock solid composure make the Golf R a great hot hatch, perhaps the best thing about the Golf R is that it really makes use of all of its performance. If the front tyres slip, the 4MOTION all-wheel-drive system can send virtually all of the engine's power to the rear end in a fraction of a second. Whereas a high-powered front-drive car such as the Renault Megane RS would be left floundering with its traction control light flickering, the Golf simply digs all four tyres into the tarmac, grips and goes.

This manual version will do 0-62mph in a mere 5.1 seconds,on the road, the Golf R feels effortlessly quick with the added reassurance of its all-wheel drive allowing you to exploit all of the available performance. There's loads of grip, traction is excellent and, unlike front-wheel-drive rivals, you won't find yourself troubling the traction control very often. Yet for all its extra poise the Golf R feels very much like a GTI, with the same precise turn-in, composed body control and nicely weighted responses on the road. No front-wheel-drive car can match it, even if it's fitted with a limited-slip diff.

That pretty much sums up the Golf R's purpose – it's for people who until now didn't think a Golf GTI was focused or fast enough. This version is just that but is still a Golf; it's still comfortable – especially if you have the optional adaptive dampers set to Comfort. VW's standard driver profile selection system lets you choose from Eco, Normal, Race or Individual modes, and with the optional Adaptive Chassis Control, damping is adjusted alongside throttle mapping and steering controls.

Under the bonnet of the Golf R is a reworked version of the same EA 888 2.0-litre turbo that's used in the Golf GTI. At one point the R pumped out 306bhp, which is 79bhp more than 227bhp Golf GTI, although later WLTP-compliant versions pegged this back to 296bhp. Maximum torque is 400Nm, and the car promises to sprint from 0-60mph in five seconds. The engine sounds the part, too. At idle there's a bassy rumble that is purposeful but not intrusive, while the unit takes on a hard-edged growl as the revs rise.

Considering the supercar levels of performance, fuel economy isn't bad at all. Under the most recent WLTP test procedure, figures of 37.7mpg and 180g/km are recorded. They are hardly bad, although if you use the Golf R to its maximum, you'll probably see economy figures fall. A car capable of such pace is never going to be cheap to insure, but compared to similarly fast models the Golf R is surprisingly affordable. It helps that it comes with VW's range of driver assistance systems that you get with the normal Golf.

The cabin blends the sporty feel of a hot hatch with the swish ambience of an upmarket executive car. The standard Golf's superb dash is complemented by a gloss black centre console and carbon-look decorative trim. Sports seats and aluminium pedals come as standard, while the classy and sporty multifunction wheel and first-rate switchgear make everything you touch feel suitably special for a £30k+ car. Snazzy LED interior lights, exterior puddle lights, LED headlights and classy dials add to the Golf's upmarket feel, while the standard kit tally also includes Bluetooth, parking sensors, adaptive cruise control and a DAB radio. The driving position is spot-on, too, with lots of steering wheel and seat adjustment. The standard Discover Navigation touchscreen set-up is easy to use and features clear mapping. All versions of the Golf R get an eight-speaker set-up and a relatively modest 4x20W power output. However, listening to your music is straightforward thanks to a DAB/AM/FM tuner, single CD player, Bluetooth connectivity and a USB connection.
