See pictures of the 2014 Volkswagen Golf R hatchback
The Golf R is the ultimate Volkswagen Golf It grabs all the best attributes of the Golf GTI and runs with them Like the GTI, it uses a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine Unlike the GTI, it offers 306bhp. The GTI has a 'mere' 230bhp on tap This means it can rocket from 0-62mph in just 4.6 seconds - almost two seconds faster than a Golf GTI The R's suspension is well capable of making the most of all that muscle, too. The latest Golf R has full LED headlamps There's also a freshly designed lower front bumper to distinguish the R from GTI models ... though the R still manages to look understated LED indicator repeater lamps are integrated with the rear view mirrors Quad tailpipes remind following traffic that this is no ordinary Golf The interior is as well laid out and high quality as any other VW Golf All instruments are clear to read, which an enthusiastic driver will appreciate Driver and passengers are assured a comfortable trip ...even at sustained high speeds The Golf R offers impressive rear seat space as well Although the four-wheel drive system means the boot is slightly smaller than front-wheel drive Golf models.
