I'll argue this one. Coming from a Mk6 Golf R, the new iteration, the MK7, isn't that special since it became part of the VW lineup.

The MK6 was barely special because the recipe was changed when they just slapped a bigger turbo on their GTI engine and put a FWD-bias Haldex AWD.

It stopped being special when the VR6 disappeared.

It does push out more power than the Alfa with 292hp.
