2011 Volkswagen Golf R32 Displacement may be down, but the blistering new 2011 Golf R is – in every way – a much improved car over the Golf R32 it replaces.
Power is up, torque is up and the R’s AWD system is more capable than the R32’s front-biased driveline. Not only that, but it’s cheaper than the outgoing model.
The Golf R replaces the Golf V R32 as the new flagship model.
It may ride on the same platform as the old MkV Golf R32 , but pretty much everything is different. The engine has been downsized from a 3.2 litre V6 to a 2.0 litre turbo four.
