Volkswagen is known for its approach to performance value, and the Golf R is no exception. It is the most expensive version of the Golf, with an engine and drivetrain taken directly from the Audi TTS, but the base price comes in $10,000 less. The Golf R's understated styling and a well-engineered interior are classic Volkswagen. The Golf also comes in both 3- and 5-door variations for greater flexibility.
The Volkswagen Golf R is new for 2012. A couple of years after the notorious R32 high-performance Golf was last seen, Volkswagen brought back the high-performance all-wheel drive hatch, redubbing it the 'Golf R.'
The Golf's always had its performance-oriented big brother, the GTI, around, and occasionally, the all-wheel drive V6-powered Golf R32 has appeared in the US. For 2012, Volkswagen brought their newest high-performance Golf, called simply the 'Golf R.' It comes with a direct-injected turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder and all-wheel drive system borrowed from the Audi TTS. The engine is tuned for 256 horsepower and 243 lb-feet of torque for the Golf, and a 6-speed manual transmission is the only gearbox option.
