Yes, the flagship performance European hatchback has a feature that will entice you to stock up on cheap tyres that you can play around with.Available on the Go

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. Because that

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

Like the recent surge in Malaysias Covid-19 cases, the headlining numbers the 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan R makes are unignorable: 320 PS, 420 Nm and only 4.9 seconds to reach 0-100 km/h.Itll naturally draw parallels to the VW Golf R Mk8 and thats completely justifiable, since both of them share the same powertrain: EA888 evo4 2.0-litre, turbocharged four-cylinder mill and the DQ500 7-speed dual-clutch automatic (DSG).Also appearing in the hottest Tiguan yet is a new all wheel drive (AWD) system: 4Mo
