2014 VW Golf R

2014 Volkswagen Golf R

3 September 2013

The 2014 Golf R arrives sporting an upgraded 2.0-liter turbocharged TSI motor, boasting 296 hp (a 30 hp increase) and 280 lb.-ft. of torque (a 22 lb.-ft. increase). It's fitted to a new 4MOTION all-wheel drive system that promises improved traction, and comes with a choice of a 6-speed manual or a dual-clutch DSG automatic transmission. What this means is that 0-62 mph goes from 5.6 seconds to a rapid 4.9 (0-60 is likely around 4.7).

Debuting next week at the Frankfurt auto show, the new Golf R is set to hit German showrooms later this year.
