2017 Volkswagen Golf R Fail To Grab Focus RS’s Attention

By  | 

The Golf R was supposed to be the one that Ford will be competing with when they bring in the Focus RS but with Volkswagen deciding not to give the Golf R any upgrades, there was really nothing for the Focus RS to worry about.

The Ford Focus RS will be powered by a 2.3 liter inline 4 engine that will be offering about 350hp and 350lb ft of torque. The engine will be mated to a six-speed manual transmission and will come with features like cornering lights, fog lights as well as DRL.

The Volkswagen Golf R, on the other hand, will come with a 2.3 liter inline 4 engine that will be mated to a six-speed manual transmission. The engine will be delivering about 350hp and 350lb ft of torque and will come with features like traction control, dusk-sensing headlights and stability control.

With all the things that the Focus RS has going on, what chance do the Volkswagen Golf R have?
