2010 VW Golf R

Last Updated:

No more V6 for the R version of the Golf (Like in the R32)

The new one gets a more powerful version of the 2.0 Liter Turbo from the GT! with 265hp.
Which is actually more than the R32.

I drove an R32 last year and it was one of the most fun I ever had driving.
So I’m looking forward to the new model.

  1. Why bother with this model and just put this engine in the GTI? (and possibly keep the 200hp version for a version between the base and GTI for a "poor man's" GTI)

  2. I really like this. I just hope they commit to bringing it to the U.S., which they have yet to do.

  3. Love the interior over the 2010 GTI interior. Am I getting old, or is the red stitching all over the GTI interior just loud and garish?

    I hope VW bring the R20 over with a four-door option.

  4. I honestly don't give a shit about this vehicle, or any VW for that matter.

    My 2007 GTI was the worst vehicle I have ever owned by FAR and I've owned 12 cars. It spent nearly 60 days in the shop for the two years I owned it and VWoA was NO help and neither were any of the three local dealers.

    VW is trash!

  5. FOUR VWs have been LEMONED where I work.

    How is that for a testament to reliability? Just like the poster from a few days ago said, VWs are trash.

  6. The nuts don't fall far from the tree. If you squint you can still see the previous 5 generations Rabbit/Golf. The general shape is still the same old 1978 Dodge Omni / Plymouth Horizon / Talbot / VW Rabbit. So far beyond old, stale, boring shoeboxes of the past that I'm amazed anyone would give it a second glance. Yawn.
