Volkswagen has recently announced the official price list for the brand new Golf R in the United Kingdom, which has been set at 29, 900 GBP.
The most powerful version of the new Volkswagen Golf generation, the Golf R, is now available for order in the United Kingdom. The model in question has been priced from 29,900 GBP, which is slightly less than the Audi S3, which has some similar mechanicals in it, costing 30,640 GBP. The new Golf R can be ordered in two body styles, with three or with five doors, and the model is getting the upgraded brakes, the black painted calipers, the sports suspension system and a choice of eight colors.
The Volkswagen Golf R is also getting a unique body kit, quad exhaust, redesigned lights, sports seats wrapped in cloth or Alcantara, R badges and much more. As far as the engine goes, this is being powered by a 2.0 liter turbocharged engine, which is producing a total output of 296 HP, sent to a part-time four-wheel drive system, but almost all the power can be transferred to the rear-wheel drive too. The 0 to 62 mph sprint in the Golf R manual takes 5.3 seconds and 4.9 seconds with the DSG. Fuel economy stands at 40.9 mpg UK and CO2 emissions stop at 165 g/km.
