Note down the date- November 4 – because that's when Volkswagen will showcase the flagship model of its most successful model – the Golf. The Golf has already many iterations like the GTI, GTI Clubsport, GTE and GTD, but the most powerful of them all is the R version and that's what we've been waiting for.

The new Golf R gets an all-wheel drive system featuring selective wheel torque control on the rear axle. The all-wheel drive system is controlled by a Vehicle Dynamics Manager that has been closely integrated with other running gear systems such the electronic front differential lock (XDS) and adaptive chassis control DCC. Under the hood is a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged power plant in the most powerful version of the EA 888 engine series. It punches out hefty 296 bhp and the high-tech, direct-injection engine is characterised by innovative solutions for individual details, such as integration of water-cooled exhaust gas routing to the turbocharger in the cylinder head or variable valve timing with dual camshaft adjustment.
