    1. Interior of the RS is ok as it has the interior of the facelift ST, I'm ok with that, the Golf surely is more refined but who cares in a performance car
    2. Same as in point 1
    3. The RS is looking way better, more aggressive, more performance. The Golf looks like as if my Granny would buy it
    4. Golf R? *lol*
    5. The RS will handle much better and has the funnier AWD System and steering. Just compare the ST and the GTI...
    6. Who cares...
    7. The topnotch Focus was always cheaper than the Golf here in Europe, I guess it will be the same with the RS, more fun for less money.

    The ST is in between the Golf GTI & Golf R. I would compare the RS to AMG45

    I agree with you Dave. I can't wait to get a price so then you can really compare. If it starts at 40k for base Im thinking I would rather have a R.

    If they are the exact same price I'm pretty sure it's Golf R for me. I've been eying the R for a while as it has what I want with a more "grown up" feel. The RS would definitely be an awesome car but I'm waiting for more info before I make the absolute decision.

    I would probably choose the RS over the Golf R at similar prices. I feel like while the Golf is more mature, its sort of plain in it overall design. I also feel like the golf has looked the same for quite some time.

    1. Interior Style: Golf R
    2. Interior Quality: Golf R
    3. Exterior Style: Focus RS in this one... I think the Golf R is cool... its just bland in comparison.. Not a whole lot differentiating it from a tdi golf lol.
    4. Power/Performance: RS. Next Question.
    5. Handling: Even further. R f'n S.
    6. Fuel Economy: We don't know. Make it a push because Just Aint Care.
    7. Price: I think it will be damn close on price. Push again.

    RS- 4
    Golf R- 3.

    And if you put the weight more on performance... it will go the way of the RS Heavily. In terms of performance: RS > STi > Golf R >

    1. Interior Style: RS
    2. Interior Quality: Golf R (sorry but it hard to beat interior quality of the VW/Audi)
    3. Exterior Style: RS
    4. Power/Performance: My bet is on the RS
    5. Handling: RS
    6. Moot point IMO when getting into cars like these
    7. Price: I think it's gonna be close but the RS will be less IMO

    Bottom line for me: I don't care what the Golf R can or can't do. FoRS all the way for me!!

    LOL
    I love the comments about the fuel mileage, don't be so quick to dismiss it. It's all relative to your situation. For me personally it is in the buying decision. I drive close 30,000 miles per year and need a good size vehicle. Recently I sold my Pontiac G8 GXP, 400+ HP sedan because my company changed the fuel reimbursement plan and I went to the Focus ST. So anything above 15mpg is great for me, and both of the above mentioned cars should do that.
    The VW may be more refined, but I cancelled my order for the previous generation of the R when I saw it's infotainment system, too small. Hopefully the new RS will have the next generation of Sync and perhaps Apple's car-play.
