At long last, Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) has introduced an updated version of the revered Golf R. We have seen the popular 1.4 TSI and GTI in detail, now is the turn of the fastest Golf-er out there. Here are Things You Need to Know about the Golf R:

Priced at RM 295,990, the Golf R takes performance to another level with 286 hp and 380 Nm from its 2.0-litre engine paired with a 7-speed DSG transmission. Off the line, the Golf R will take just 5.1 seconds to a 100 km/h before it hits an electronically-limited top speed of 250 km/h. Unlike the GTI, the Golf R gets power funneled to all four corners through the 4MOTION all-wheel drive system with Adaptive Chassis Control also as standard.

The Volkswagen Golf R comes with seven airbags as standard and is covered by VPCM’s five-year factory warranty, five years free roadside assistance and a 3-Years/45,000 km free service package.
