2017 Volkswagen Golf R Ignored By Rival
The Volkswagen Golf R has always been one of the top performance models here in the US but with Ford now bringing in the Ford Focus RS, the spotlight is no longer on the Volkswagen Golf R.
With what the Volkswagen Golf R has to offer, it is not a bad model at all but the Ford Focus RS is not one easy rival to beat. The current Volkswagen Golf R will be coming in with a 2.0 liter inline 4 engine that will be mated to a six-speed manual transmission. The engine will be offering about 292hp and 280lb ft of torque and will return about 22mpg in the city and 31mpg on the highway.
As nice as that is, Ford has something even better to offer on the Ford Focus RS. Under the hood is a 2.3 liter inline 4 engine that will be mated to a six-speed manual transmission. The engine will be offering about 350hp and 350lb ft of torque. With additional features like DRL, fog lights and more, the Focus RS is the obvious winner here.
