The 2021 VW Golf R is the very top of the new mk8 range model focused on performance. It's a step further that the GTI in the range and costs around £5000 more than the equivalent GTI. It uses the engine shared with its sister car the Audi S3, which is a 2.0 litre turbocharged unit producing a whopping 316 horsepower, knocking a few tenths off the 0-60 time taking it down to just 4.7 seconds seconds and a top speed limited to 155 mph, which can be raised further if you pay for the optional R Performance upgrade removing the limiter and taking top speed up to 168 mph, and this also includes a set of lightweight 19" alloys and a large rear spoiler for added downforce. The latest 2021 Golf R also borrows the Audi's Quattro 4 wheel drive system giving it massive grip in poor weather, and great traction out of corners using the new torque vectoring system distributing torque across the rear wheels electronically. There's a new motorsport style front splitter, brake discs 17 mm larger than the previous model, and the chassis has had a 20mm suspension drop. Internal upgrades include sports seats with blue inserts, a sports steering wheel, stainless-steel pedals and a selection of R-specific displays for the touchscreen infotainment system. You can order the R in 5 door body style, though we expect the estate to follow, and comes as standard with a 7 speed DSG Automatic gearbox.
