Published images of the new generation of high-performance VW Golf RJuly 6, 2020
Some publications published their vision of what the new generation of the high-performance VW Golf R hatchback might look like. The debut of the new product should take place in the coming months.
There used to be a time when there was only one Golf R in the high-performance Volkswagen R family. Over time, the Passat R36, Touareg R50 and Polo R WRC joined the “charged” hatchback. This year, the automaker will complement the family of Touareg R, Arteon R, Arteon R Shooting Brake (station wagon) and Tiguan R.
VW has confirmed that the new Golf R will be introduced later this year. Not so long ago, a prototype of this model was seen with very little camouflage and based on these images, an independent artist KDesign AG created a new product rendering.
In a typical VAG fashion, the all-new Golf R does not have the most exciting design among high-performance hatchbacks, but this is something that many people like about the car – its not that aggressive appearance.
Sure, the car has large air vents in front and four tailpipes of the exhaust system at the rear, but compared to the same Honda Civic Type R, this version of the car will look pretty usual.
The new Golf R will have to be equipped with the already familiar 2.0 TSI. It has a power output of 315 hp. in the aforementioned Tiguan R and Arteon R, so it goes without saying that in a smaller Golf this motor will not give out more power. However, being lighter than a crossover and a flagship liftback, a compact hatchback should get more performance with this engine.
The official debut of the high-performance Golf R will take place in the coming months, probably after the official premiere of the Golf GTI TCR – a version of the hatchback that is designed for the racetrack.
Not so long ago, our publication wrote that photos of the new generation of the VW Golf Variant station wagon appeared on the Web. Western editions have published photos from the tests of the all-new VW Golf Variant station wagon. The car received camouflage only in the taillights.
