Volkswagen Golf R 2017
The Volkswagen Golf R 2017 has stepped up from its predecessor.
Aesthetically there may not be many changes, just a few upgrades to keep its finger on the pulse, but on the road you feel the difference. A gentle, city hatch on one side comped with a ferociously quick cross country pocket rocket.
The car comes well equipped with the all-wheel-drive five-door hatch offering up a 213kW four-cylinder turbocharged engine, big brakes & adaptive suspension. The stock kit comes with features galore, rear view camera, gesture and voice control, keyless access, just to name a few.
If you’re looking for something that has bite, convenience and sophistication look no further than the Golf R.
