5. Volkswagen Golf R
Volkswagen, the sister brand to Audi, has made our list of the top ten best AWD sports cars list. With its classic upright hatchback design, the VW Golf R is the perfect combination of practicality and sportiness.
You can pick one up for around $40,000 standard with a 4-cylinder 2.0 L engine powering 292 HP. This sports car comes in at the top of its pricing class against the Ford Focus RS and Subaru WRX STI. The VW Golf R offers a uniquely designed interior with accented sport seats, keyless push to start, premium sound by Fender, a rear view camera, blind spot monitors, and a smartphone compatible touch screen display.
VW put a heavy focus on the usefulness and safety features incorporated in the Golf R. As a result, some critics believe this is the reason it provides less power than the Subaru WRX STI or the Ford Focus RS. Despite a reduction in power, this awesome sports car will make your day-to-day life easier with its easy to use features.
