Based on the 6th iteration of the VW Golf, the R model is the perennial powerhouse of the VW model lineup. The Golf R beats its predecessors in every performance metric, exceeding lofty expectations. With all manufacturers downsizing their motors, VW swapped the 3.2L motor with their tried-and-true turbo-charged 2.0L motor, without sacrificing performance. With boost raised to an astonishing 17psi, the Golf R produces an incredible 270 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. Despite being down 2 cylinders, the Golf R sprints to 60 MPH in only 5.5 seconds! More power is not the only criteria for the R badge – handling is key as well. This is why VW raided the corporate parts bin, coming up with an Audi-derived four wheel drive system, ensuring superior traction on any road surface.
