What will a “charged” new generation VW Golf R hatchback look like?

A render has appeared on the Internet for a new generation of the high-performance German hatchback VW Golf R. According to rumors, the novelty should have almost 330 horsepower.

Based on the available photos of previously seen prototypes of the “charged” German novelty, artists from a foreign publication created their own version of what will be called the VW Golf R 2021 model year.

 The next generation of the powerful Golf R hatchback will have large front air intakes, which are needed to cool the engine with advanced technical characteristics. According to rumors, we are talking about a 2.0 TSI engine with four “pots”, which is expected to produce up to 329 horsepower. At least that’s what it is said about on the Internet slide show, which contained the characteristics of all high-performance Golf Mk8 generation cars.

 The back of the “hot” hatchback was fully revealed at the end of January, when the prototype of the novelty without camouflage was photographed on a public road. The car had two twin tailpipes of the exhaust system, but dispensed with the brand nameplate R.

VW did not disclose details about the high-performance performance of the Golf R 2021, but it promised increased power compared to the predecessor of the Mk7 generation, so there is a pretty good chance that the slide show has the right information. We know for sure that the novelty will do without two functions that some of its competitors possess, such as the drift mode of the Mercedes-AMG A45 and Ford Focus RS, as well as the steering of all four wheels – the Renault Megane RS.

 The new Golf R will receive all-wheel drive, the “robot” DSG. If you need even more power, the VW can offer a more powerful Golf R Plus. They say that the engine of such a car will be able to produce about 400 hp.
