This week I drove the 2018 Volkswagen Golf R, I really like the VW Golf R as a hot hatch because to me it checks off all the right boxes that make a hatchback car a hot hatch. I think a hot hatch must be a good daily driver so it needs to be comfortable to drive and have some nice interior features. The Golf R definitely fits this category. I think a hot hatch needs to be a good hatchback, meaning you should be able to use the space provided for real day-to-day life. Again the Golf R fits this with a large and useable hatchback. Lastly, the hot hatch needs to be hot! The Golf R is definitely hot and is a ton of fun to drive!
