If you don’t know by now, get ready to fall on your back: Yes, the new Golf GTI Clubsport S will cost you R900 000.

I know. Absolute madness. But, to be fair, if you’re looking to buy the Clubsport S, you probably already know what it costs and you probably can afford it. That's cool and there is no shame in that. It's a great car. But, the facts are the facts are the facts: Despite its hype, which is considerable and deserved because yes it is awesome, the Clubsport S is still a Golf.

A Golf!

A Golf that costs nearly one million rand.

As such, Gusheshe would like you to consider these five alternatives, which in all instances will offer you more car, substantially more motoring presence and more, of what Gusheshe calls, soulful driving. These then are the 5 cars that you should buy instead of the Clubsport S and although not brand new, they’re still outrageously good, will cost you less than the Golf and leave you with a R100 000 holiday to spare... in the Seychelles.

You're welcome.

Few things say ‘I’m a pimp’ like a Range Rover does. So why not get out your pimp hand? For less than a Golf you can look like Kim Kardashian’s drug dealer and go anywhere in the world without getting stuck. I mean come on, it’s a Range Rover for less than a Golf.
