MPG and Running Costs 

Volkswagen promises 40.4mpg on the combined cycle for the Golf R Estate, which is definitely impressive. Real world figures are closer to 35mpg with things dropping into the late 20s when driving the car hard.

Running costs aren’t going to be far off a standard Golf Estate, although you do need to factor in budget for more expensive tyres.
