Not only did the engineers raise the 2.0-litre engine’s bar from 296bhp to 306bhp, but also swapped 6-speed transmission for a 7-speed auto box. These figures bring along a shorter 0-62mph acceleration, shaving 0.3 seconds off the previous 4.9 seconds. They also allow the new Golf R to compete with such players as Audi S3 and Ford Focus RS. We still don’t know what the interior looks like; presumably, not much will be changed.

In a few words, VW Golf R retained its stance yet got faster satisfying the need of its speed addicted fans. Looking forward to the full revelation!
