VW GTI vs Golf R Images and specs


2016 Volkswagen Golf R MK7

The Golf R has a 2 liter 4 cylinder Turbo motor making 290HP and 280 lb-ft of torque.

It will do 0-60 in about 5 seconds.

The Golf R separates itself from the GTI with it’s 4motion all wheel drive system.

-When operating under a relatively low load or when coasting, the front wheels are driven and the rear wheels are decoupled, helping to save fuel. However, the rear wheels can be engaged in fractions of a second whenever necessary via the Haldex coupling, which is activated by an electro-hydraulic oil pump.

-the amount of pressure applied to the clutch plates can be used to continuously vary the amount of torque going between the front and rear wheels, up to a maximum of 50 percent at the rear axle.

2015 Volkswagen GTI MK7

The 2015 GTI has a 2 liter 4 cylinder Turbo motor making 210HP and 258 lb-ft of torque and front wheel drive.
