|   Saturday, December 13, 2014
The Volkswagen Golf gets a new high-performance version. Titled Golf R Variant, the new model becomes the most powerful and fastest compact wagon on the market, thanks to a maximum power of 300 hp and an acceleration time of 5.1 seconds from 0 to 100 km / h.

The Volkswagen Golf Variant received an R version, the first in its history, equipped with a 2.0 TSI engine, 300 hp and 380 Nm of torque, mated to a 4Motion four-wheel drive. This version's performance is the most powerful in the compact segment, and benefits from all the technical elements and aesthetics found on the Golf R hatchback.


Up to the B-pillar, the Variant version of the Golf R is very similar from an aesthetic point of view to the hatchback model, but things are changing at the rear where the R Golf Variant has a special set of ornaments on the D-pillars, LED lights for the number plate, taillights with cherry-red finish, four tailpipes with chrome finish and an R-Design bumper.

The Golf R Variant is the most powerful and most advanced compact station wagon in the market, having a 0 to 100 km / h time of 5.1 seconds and a top speed electronically limited to 250 km / h. Despite this performance, the trunk still has a volume of 605 liters with the rear seats raised and 1,620 liters with them folded. The Golf R Variant can seat five passengers.

The estimated combined fuel consumption of this model is 7.0 liters per 100 km, according to NEDC cycle. In the standard version, it has a six-speed DSG transmission, but the possibility of having a manual unit is low. The 4Motion all-wheel drive is permanent.

The list of options includes a DCC adaptive chassis that integrates a runtime mode selector. The regular version has four programs and five together with DCC: "Eco", "Normal", "Individual", plus a "Race" mode that has been specially made for the Golf R. With the DCC, a "Comfort" mode is available.


"Race" mode is designed for high-speed track driving: damping is increased and the engine response and shift points of the transmission are configured to be even sportier. The "Individual" driving profile allows the driver to combine mode settings for all kinds of individual parameters. "Eco" mode allows the engine, air conditioning and other auxiliary systems to be controlled for optimal fuel efficiency.

The interior of the model takes all the elements that we find in the hatchback version. Therefore we have Alcantara upholstery and the seats see the logo R stitched, plus a multifunction sports steering wheel is provided.

Ambient lighting and board clocks are blue, and the standard equipment level is richer than the basic version of the Golf Variant. The debut of the new Golf Variant version was held at the Auto Show in Los Angeles, but the first deliveries will take place in the summer of 2015.
