Volkswagen Introduces The New Golf R – The Most Powerful Golf Model of All Time

  • The latest Golf R is the fastest and most powerful version.
  • 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged high-tech power plant engine.
  • Golf R now features all-wheel drive system with wheel torque control and a Vehicle Dynamics Manager.

Coming in from Wolfsburg (Germany), the model of the eight Golf Generation: the new Golf R has landed. November 4th was the most awaited world premiere date for the famous sporty golf.

Not only this, but Volkswagen also debuted the GTI3, GTI Clubsport4, GTE5 and GTD6 alongside the new Golf R.

Remember the Golf R32 that made its debut in 2002? The new Golf R is the most powerful Golf model in history.

All-wheel Drive System

The Golf R322 already had an all-wheel drive system – so what’s new?

The new Golf R features selective wheel torque control on the rear axle. This means that the new rear distributes the power between the front and rear axles, and also between the two rear wheels. Thus, creating maximum agility.

The all-wheel drive system is controlled by a Vehicle Dynamics Manager. This produces many benefits. The VDM is interconnected with running other gear systems such as adaptive chassis control DCC and electronic differential locks (XDS) resulting in optimal traction and neutral handling with the utmost level of precision to create maximum driving pleasure.


The first-ever Golf R32 debuted with a 3.2-litre six-cylinder engine in 2002. In 2009, Volkswagen updated the engine from a naturally-aspirated engine to a turbocharged engine creating 21% more efficiency with an output of 199kW (270 PS).

The new Golf R features a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged power plant from the EA 888 engine series with many characteristics that enhance the performance of the new Golf.

The new Golf is a standout car, more efficient and dynamic for the new generation.
