2010 Volkswagen Golf R in the US, Sold as GTI-R
The car is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder powerplant that develops 270 PS at 6,000 rpm and propels the car from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.7 seconds. The previous model, which was featuring a 3.2-liter engine, did the same in 6.5 seconds.
Just as expected, the R Golf has been specifically designed to return the best fuel consumption combined with advanced engine performance. The DSG transmission system improves the new Golf R's acceleration, helping it achieve 100 km/h in 5.5 seconds.
Speaking of fuel consumption, the basic configuration burns 8.5 liters of gasoline per 100 km (27.6 mpg) while releasing 199 grams of CO2 per kilometer (down from 255 g/km). The DSG reduces fuel consumption to 8.4 l/100km (28 mpg) and CO2 emissions of 195 g/km.
The R version comes equipped with several sporty features, including several parts in the interior. The R brings a new gearshift knob, carpet floor mats, aluminum door tread plates with R logo and the instruments with their blue pointers. Furthermore, it boasts stainless steel sport pedals and R-specific instrument and door accents in “Silver Lane” style plus automatic climate control system (“Climatronic”).
The GTI-R will hit the US streets in 2010, with prices likely to be a bit above the 2010 GTI, currently priced at $23,489.
