"The sports model that goes beyond the GTI, introduced in the 6th generation Golf."
Volkswagen made a name in the "hot hatch" segment with the venerable GTI, which served as the halo model in its best-selling Golf lineup. The German company solidified its position as a premiere hot-hatch maker when it introduced the R32, included in the lineup of the fourth-generation Golf. The R32 took high-performance way beyond that of the GTI.
In 2009, Volkswagen introduced a much improved successor to the R32 when the Golf R made its debut. The Volkswagen R32 had been powered by a 3.2-liter V-6 engine, but the new Golf R came equipped with a 2.0-liter inline-4 TSI engine, downsized to match the times that called for better fuel efficiency. Nonetheless, this smaller displacement 4-cylinder was a brute, posting maximum power output of 252 HP at 6000 rpm and 243.7 ft-lb of torque from 2400-5200 rpm, which was 6 HP and 8.0 ft-lb greater, respectively, than the previous R32 model. Fuel economy had also been improved by 20 percent at 29.2 MPG, thanks partly to the addition of a 6-speed DSG transmission. And Volkswagen's 4-Motion system made this R32 the first all-wheel-drive Golf in history.
New additions to the Golf R included upgraded suspension and brakes, an enlarged underskirt for the exterior and a lower ride height by 0.6 inches.
As the best-performing Volkswagen Golf model, the Golf R rewards the enthusiast driver with a high level of performance and fun while meeting today's eco-conscious expectations.
The Golf VI R is only available to owners of the DLC Car Pack 2. Further copies of the car can then be purchased from the Volkswagen Dealership for 50,500 Credits.
