The new 2013 Volkswagen Golf R performance compact

The third-generation Golf R represents intelligent downsizing. The heir to the 2004 and 2008 Golf R32 models, the new R manages to have more power, more performance, and consume less gasoline than its illustrious iconic performance forebears. And it offers all this for just $33,990, plus destination, for the two-door Golf R model.

Whereas the R32 models used 3.2-liter VR6 engines, the new Golf R is fitted with a high-output version of the award-winning turbocharged 2.0-liter TSI® engine. This engine makes 256 horsepower, six more than the VR6 fitted into the 2008 R32. As well as offering more power and performance, the Golf R is also more economical, with EPA estimated fuel economy of 19 mpg city and 27 mpg highway compared with EPA estimated mileage of 18 mpg city and 23 mpg highway for the prior model.
