2017 VW Golf R review

Good news for speed enthusiasts as there will be the only similarity in the engine department between the concept and the production version. The concept version is powered by 2.0-liter turbo four cylinder good for a 395 hp while production version will come with the same engine that is tuned up to generate more than 420 hp. This means the hatchback will be considerably stronger than both the Mercedes AMG A45’s 2.0L turbo four and the Audi RS 3’s 5.0L turbocharged engine. Volkswagen’s 4Motion Haldex-type all-wheel drive system and paddle shifter are combined with its dual-clutch six-speed transmission link to all four wheels to distribute power. The suspension system is scrupulously redesigned, brakes are clearly bigger, and steering system is new and more unswerving. There will be packs of electronic driving supports available in this 2017 VW Golf R.
