This I know, and it's noticeable in the interior of the Mini I had for a few days. Feels like the Mini was "expanded" to fit onto the UKL. The radio controls are totally far away and the light switch...

The interior screams 2er Active Tourer, on which it shares the platform.

Assuming it's priced right with eye-candy lease offers, it'll sell well. Will please the shareholders and management.

I think there is enough demand versus limited supply for the Golf R that dealers don't feel compelled to let people test drive one.
