Volkswagen Golf R Variant has entered the final testsOctober 27, 2020
The German automaker was spotted at the Nürburgring testing a slightly odd Golf wagon that looked like a “charged” Golf R Alltrack.
On November 4, Volkswagen promised to unveil the new Golf R. Whether there will be a universal version of this model remains to be seen, but in the meantime a fresh series of spy photos of the high-speed station wagon undergoing final tests at the Nurburgring has appeared on the Web. Oddly enough, the prototype appears to have borrowed some parts from Alltrack, with the exception of the raised suspension and larger wheels.
The Golf R Alltrack claims to be Volkswagen’s ideal station wagon. Using elements from other Golf versions is probably an easy way for the company to hide the true R variant. The front bumper and plastic wheel arch liners belong to the “regular” Alltrack, but the exhaust pipes, blue brake calipers and low-profile tires suggest that we are unlikely to be dealing with. with a standard station wagon.
Volkswagen camouflaged the headlights and grille by applying camouflage tape to the taillights to make them look like they were borrowed from the Golf Mk7 station wagon. The light-alloy wheels are different from those found on Alltrack and are more suited to the sporty character of R. It is likely that other wheel models will also be offered, which should be at least 19 inches in size.
While the manufacturer has yet to reveal what the new Golf R will be equipped with, the 2.0 TSI is expected under the hood as found in the Tiguan R and Arteon R / Arteon R Shooting Brake. This means that the new model will receive 316 horsepower and 420 Nm of torque in a DSG-only configuration with 4Motion all-wheel drive as standard equipment.
