The new Golf R has been given its own name which is the Golf Range. With its base model coming in at just over 500 dollars it is by no means a cheap car. Despite its low price the Golf R can be one of the most advanced driving sports vehicles on the market today. However its looks aren't anything special and can be compared to many mid-priced Japanese racers. It also doesn't have the range of features found in some of the higher end vehicles such as the Chevrolet Volt or the Nissan Armada.
Volkswagen has made changes to this car with the introduction of a new RW Team Concept that features an all-wheel drive system. The Golf R would then be joined by a second new model in the form of the Volkswagen Passat TDI. Both cars use a 1.2L twin-turbocharged i-Tuned automatic transmission with CVT. Volkswagen has used Golf's longstanding ten speed automatic transmission but with the move to a manual mode. This is surprising as the manual version of the Golf R has been consistently fast when testing. This suggests that perhaps VW has decided to ditch the automatic gearbox in favor of a manual transmission.
Volkswagen has kept the Golf R powerful by using its eight-speed automatic transmission. It has also added a powerful turbocharged 2.0-liter gasoline engine mated to a previously unused section of the Golf R body. It is expected that this engine will be used on a limited basis as a race car for the Golf weekend events next season. The two turbocharged engines will generate a total of five hundred and thirty-three horsepower at the tail end of the Golf R. The Golf R's six-speed manual transmission will be able to handle up to those power levels.
Volkswagen claims that the new Golf R models will offer consumers “new levels of functionality and luxury”. So it is surprising that they have only released the manual and six-speed transmissions so far. The official photos of the new Golf R are very impressive and show much promise for this updated model. One thing is for sure, no one will be able to ignore the new Golf R's unique styling. There is no mistaking that it will be an instant hit with the classically conservative crowd and should be a serious contender for car of the year.
Many automotive magazines and reviews have panned the new golf models as being underwhelming and under powered. However, these reviews are coming from unknown sources and are therefore considered suspect. With the world premier of the Golf R taking place during the Geneva Motor Show, many media outlets are planning to attend the event and provide live news reports on the new vehicles on display. Auto journalists have been invited to attend the world premiere in order to provide their firsthand review of the new golf models.
According to the organizers, the new golf r will feature the previously announced features as well as some “new surprises”. For example, they have not disclosed whether the all-wheel drive will be available. They did reveal that the vehicle will be featured in the all-new “Lufthansa” cross-line. Lufthansa is a German airline that is one of the largest airlines in the world. It is not known if the all-wheel drive is a standard feature on all Lufthansa aircraft or if the manufacturer will be offering a “rosary” as an option in some markets.
Another interesting announcement is that the all-wheel drive will be available on the Golf R coupe without the aid of a clutch or manual transmission. The all-wheel drive system uses its own electric motor and generator to power the rear wheels rather than relying on the clutch or transfer case that is featured on the previous generation. This makes the golf r more fuel efficient and allows it to travel at a faster speed, up to 5 mph faster than the previous generation. The Golf R is expected to cost $exit less than its older siblings, which is great news for any potential buyer. The all-wheel drive makes the vehicle extremely versatile and can be used on any level of golf courses from one to eighteen holes.
It's also possible that the all-wheel drive will be featured on future Golf R models as a standard equipment. No announcements have been made regarding this, but it is possible that future versions of the golf gti will feature all wheel drive. The all-wheel drive system would allow drivers to better perform precision maneuvers on the greens. For instance, multiple drivers could use the rear wheels to improve their technique and precision while driving to the green.
