The new Volkswagen Golf R looks like an amazing car. It has all wheel drive, a 256 hp turbo four banger, and it even looks good. It excels in all things but one: you can't turn off the freakin' stability control.
That VW's engineers decided to make the car's braking more or less autonomous in tight cornering, when many car enthusiasts would like to break the tires loose and have some fun. So maybe enthusiasts will look elsewhere for hot hatch fun, because who wants to spend nearly $40,000 on a car that doesn't let you do what you want with it?
(Thanks for the tips everyone!)
