Excuse Me? No More New Golf R?

The generation of Golf (MK7) has been around for seven years, and it's pretty much a textbook step to proceed with another model renewal. Volkswagen recently released a press release detailing its full line-up for the 2020 model year. The name of Golf R, however, seems to be marked out of the curriculum. Later in Volkswagen's official response, we find no relief for those who concrened about the layoff. Except for the hot all-wheel-drive hatchback which reached the end of production in Mk7 form,

This Volkswagen Golf R makes more power than a Lamborghini Aventador!

Ask anyone who has ever driven a Volkswagen Golf R and they’ll tell you that it’s no slouch. However, German tuner ‘The Turbo Engineers’ thought that it needs a little more pep in its step. Enter what could possibly be the only five-cylinder Golf R in the world. The stock four-pot was swapped for a 2.5-litre turbo unit from the Audi RS3 but with a name like ‘The Turbo Engineers’, they took it upon themselves to strap a bigger turbo on it.

Why is the Toyota 86 so much more expensive than the VW Golf GTI?

When the 200 PS Toyota 86 was first launched in Malaysia in 2012, its asking price was RM 243,000 for the manual, and RM 249,000 for the automatic variant.
