« Back Volkswagen Golf R 5dr DSG
Win a Volkswagen Golf R!
There used to be a time when hot hatchbacks had just 150 bhp, but time marches on and so do the buying public’s requirements.
So above the hot hatch bracket (with around 200 bhp) we now have the mega hatches like the Audi RS3 and Mercedes A45 AMG. Well, Volkswagen are never one to be left out so with this Golf R they are packing a 296 bhp punch through all four wheels. This means epic performance in every gear, in all weather conditions.
With subtly aggressive styling added in, this is one of the coolest, subtlest ways to hit 62mph in just over 5 seconds.
This also gets new TFT dials, LED headlights, and gesture control for the Satnav/Infotainment system.
