Any real difference between S3 and MkIV R32 MPG?
Sorry for this boring topic which I know is frequently asked, and I don't want to start up a whole S3vR32 debate. I am looking at getting an S3 but seem to be tempted by an R32. Now, both cars have same 0-60, S3 is more tuneable, but reviews suggest that the R32 handles better. One thing that isn't clear is actual, realistic MPGs for the two cars. In other threads I have heard of people getting 26-27mpg from their S3, and in similar threads people claim to be getting 25mpg out of an R32?????
Is there really such a small difference between the two? Or are these numbers quoted from a granny-like R32 driver and a spirited S3 driver?
Surely there must be a greater difference? If not then I may have to opt for an .:R!!!
I thought figures were more like 20mpg for the R and 27ish for the S3 with normal driving, with blasts of right footed action.
Any help would be great!
