If you live in Australia and feel like riding a real hot hatch then our suggestions would be buying the 2017 VW Golf R which will join the rest of the fleet this summer. It is hot looking, extremely fast and tweaked with the latest high-tech gizmos.
Besides that, it promises to deliver an impressive acceleration – in fact, it is regarded as the fastest acceleration ever seen on a Golf R – just 4.8 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h, with power standing at 213 kW and 380 Nm of torque, way too impressive than the ongoing 206 kW.
The car`s turbo flat-four engine is helped by a six-speed manual transmission; however, you can also choose the company`s newest seven-speed dual-clutch DSG automatic, which send the power to the wheels via a Haldex all-wheel drive system, also called “4MOTION”.
Mechanically, the all-new 2017 VW Golf R MK7.5 also comes with adaptive suspension, locking differential, performance brakes, as well as the new 19-inch “Spielberg” alloy wheels with sports tires. As for the exterior, the model is enhanced with sporty features, which increase its overall aggressive appearance.
Inside, the cabin welcomes you with rather the same standard features as in the stock Golf, adding as well the new “Discover Pro” 9.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system with App-Connect technology, gesture control and voice recognition.
Other features inside also include Vienna leather upholstery, heated front seats or digital Active Info Display, and so forth.
Once arriving in Australia this August, the all-new 2017 VW Golf R Mk7.5 will be joining the rest of the fleet – the new Golf GTI and the standard Golf Mk7.5. Prices will be revealed prior to its dealer launch.
