2017 Volkswagen Golf R 4-Door AWD Review
says:
When I got in the Golf R I was expecting to be blown away but I was very let down mainly by the no feel of the clutch. It detracted so much from the feeling of driving the car. I say get the DCT or dont get one at all. The leather seats are nice but I still would prefer the plaid as you tend to slide around. Not worth the price over the GTI.
