Civic Type R vs. VW Golf R -- Which hot hatch will win in an awesome drag race put together by Top Gear?
The Golf R is equipped with a DSG gearbox, which makes it the fastest car ever made by Volkswagen.
On the other hand, the Civic Type R is powered by a 310 horsepower 2-liter turbo engine, one of the most powerful the Japanese company makes.
There is a price gap between the two. The Civic Type R is just under 30,000 pounds, while the Golf R 5-door with DSG cost about 3,000 more.The Golf R reaches 60 miles per hour in 4.6 seconds, and the Civic takes 5.3 seconds, according to Top Gear. By the time they get to the quarter-mile marker, the lead has been stretched to 0.7 of a second and several car lengths. So if this were a race organized by amateurs around town, it wouldn't even be close.
