The sportiest Golf is powered by a newly configured 296 horsepower TSI engine, which is not only 30 horsepower more powerful, but also 18 percent more fuel-efficient than the previous engine. Its maximum torque was boosted by 22 pound feet to 280 lb-ft. The four-cylinder engine can be mated to either a six-speed manual transmission or a dual-clutch DSG automatic transmission. The Golf R sends its power to all four wheels via a new 4MOTION all-wheel drive system.

The Golf R stands out from the GTI with its distinctive air intakes; specially designed bumpers and side sills; and, its dual-branch exhaust system with four chrome tailpipes. Klaus Bischoff, Head of Volkswagen Design, explains: “The Golf R creates an exciting balance between seriousness and sportiness and between restraint and differentiation.”
