World premiere 7: Golf R as most powerful Golf ever
Automotive passion has always had something to do with performance. However, Volkswagen is demonstrating – in the world premiere of the new 199 kW / 270 PS Golf R at the IAA – that fuel consumption values can be corrected downward even in the high-end sports car area. The highlight here: While in the now retired Golf R32 (184 kW / 250 PS), 10.7 litres of fuel was processed by the injection system every 100 kilometres, on the new Golf R – thanks to a boosted high-tech TSI – the figure is just 8.5 litres, which is 2.2 litres or 21 percent less! The all-wheel drive Golf R (350 Newton-meter torque between 2,500 and 5,000 rpm) sprints to 100 km/h in 5.7 seconds (Golf R DSG: 5.5 seconds) and reaches an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h. Two of the many identifying visual features of this exceptional Golf conceptualised by Volkswagen Individual: newly developed LED taillights and LED daytime running lights. The Golf R can be ordered in Germany starting at the end of this year.
Four new model variants: R-Line and Exclusive
The customising specialists at Volkswagen Individual have designed the 'R-Line' for all those customers who want highly dynamic styling on the car body and interior in the spirit of the power-enhanced R models, yet they prefer a petrol or diesel engine with less power. The company is simultaneously presenting three entirely new models in global premieres at the IAA: the Golf R-Line, Scirocco R-Line and Passat CC R-Line. They will all be launched on the market this autumn. The Volkswagen Individual brand has also been repositioned; in the future it will market products under the 'Volkswagen Exclusive' label and bundle a range of especially high-end models and equipment features. A dual premiere: The first Exclusive model to be offered will be the brand new Golf Estate; with its comprehensive set of high-end feature upgrades it is crossing over from an all-purpose vehicle to a lifestyle estate car.Source - Volkswagen
