It is not even a tiny bit of a secret that I love my Volkswagen Golf. I love its combination of good looks, practicality, and sporty driving characteristics, but how does it compare against something from BMW? In this episode of Chris Harris on Cars for /DRIVE, Chris takes a look at the latest and greatest seventh-generation Golf R, and he compares it to the new darling from BMW, the M235i.

In usual Chris Harris fashion, there is a bit of wit, a bit of history, and just a dash of sideways. Strangely though, he doesn’t really come to a solid conclusion about which one is best. He just gives us what he sees as the pros and the cons, and leaves it at that.

Seeing as he never came to a full conclusion, I leave it up to you to make your choice. Hit up those comments and tell us which car you think is the better of the two. I’ll be back a bit later to congratulate everyone who I think is right, as well as chide all those who have yet to see the light and truth in this automotive universe.

Now hit play, watch the two cars do their magic, and get to commenting. I am waiting.
