2016 VW Golf R Facelift: A Modern Vintage Looking Sports Hatch

If you are a fan of the Volkswagen Golf R, then you should re-visit last year’s Beijing Auto Show. This is because VW has confirmed yesterday that the Golf R Facelift that is due to arrive next year will be based on the concept Golf model that was unveiled at the motoring event.

This means that the future Golf R will be looking to restore the spirit of the old 1989 Rally Golf. The future Facelift model will be wearing a lemon yellow paintjob while also coming with a silver interior.

Under the hood, the Golf R Facelift will be powered by a 2.2L turbocharged engine that is mated to 7-speed DSG transmission all while driving on the Haldex5 AWD system. In figures, the Golf R Facelift will have 292hp in hand and it will be able to accelerate from 0-62mph in about 3.9 seconds.

The VW Golf R Facelift will be making its debut next year and when it arrives, the sports hatch will look to compete with likes of the Ford Focus RS.

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
