Late 2011 is when to look forward to the new Golf R! Personally I’m excited because for years I’ve been wanting Volkswagen to put a nice, light-weight 4-cylinder motor in their flagship performance car. Not to knock the old VR6, but that thing was to heavy for a front-wheel drive platform.
The new Golf R adds manual transmission and 4-doors too, making it pretty much my (and many others) dream GTI! VW’s come so far over the last 10 years with their interior options also, this new VW looks to really take its place as the best all-around compact performance vehicle on the market. There will still be cars that handle better, there will still be cars that are faster, and there will be other cars with more luxury features, but as a total package, the R is truly impossible to beat! (In my of course un-biased opinion!)
I already have a waiting list for this model , which will be limited in number, especially at first. If you’d like to stay updated on the Golf R’s arrival, you can follow me on my facebook page, or contact me here to get added to the list!
