2014 Volkswagen Golf R

Volkswagen greatly developed R version of the seventh-generation Golf, which will dispose of engine power around 290KS, which means that it will be the strongest series in the history of golf. This camouflaged prototype was filmed at the Nurburgring.It is expected that the Golf R will arrive in showrooms early in 2014. and may be presented at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

Here we see a prototype for the next R, based on Volkswagen s seventh-generation Golf. The production model probably will have more extreme visuals than seen here; we believe this example is wearing the clothes of its less-powerful GTI sibling. The 2015 Golf R may feature the four exhaust pipes captured in our shots, however, and we know it will have LED taillamps.

Why It Matters: The Golf is one of our favorite compacts—the GTI is a perennial 10Best Cars winner, while the regular model also made the past two lists—and the new generation will be lighter and, hopefully, even better to drive. The GTI defined the hot hatch segment; the all-wheel drive Golf R provides a more upscale interpretation on the theme.

Platform: Like all lesser MkVII Golfs—and many other forthcoming Audi and VW models—the R will ride on the modular MQB architecture. It promises to cut as much as 200 pounds from the regular Golf, and we hope to see a similar amount sliced from the R. The current car’s hefty curb weight (3354 pounds as tested earlier this year) keeps it from feeling truly athletic.

Powertrains: Both the next GTI and the Golf R will be powered by variations of the brand s EA888 2.0-liter TFSI engine; the GTI will have 220 hp, while the Golf R will see its output rise from 256 hp to somewhere around 300. The R will offer a six-speed manual and an optional dual-clutch automatic in Europe; current American Golf Rs are stick-only, and if we only get one gearbox the next time around, we hope that strategy continues. We’re also hearing rumors of a Golf RS, powered by the Audi RS3 s turbo five-cylinder and with as much as 370 hp.

Yes, please.

Competition: Ford Focus ST, Mazdaspeed 3, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, Subaru Impreza WRX STI.

Estimated Arrival and Price: The GTI will be launched next spring in European markets and will arrive here in late 2013 as a 2014 model; we expect that the Golf R will follow one year later. The base price should stay around $35K, which is a lot to ask for a VW Golf. But the R is the only game in town if you want a relatively powerful, all-wheel-drive hatchback that doesn’t look like an ad for body kits, and the R’s high level of refinement further sets it apart.

Some information like specification, performance, release date and price sometimes we can add later!
