MK7 Golf R 2015-2017
Having just hit US shores in February 2015, the 2015 MK7 Golf R has already proven to be a big hit thus far. With almost 300HP on tap and VW's new 5th generation Haldex 4MOTION four-wheel drive system, professional reviewers are already regarding it as the best Volkswagen R model ever offered. Within it's segment, there are few other all wheel drive vehicles that offer the practicality and all-around performance for the price. This generation marks the first time Volkswagen has offered both a 6-speed manual and DSG option on the R platform in the United States, a decision that opens up their potential market to an even wider range of car enthusiasts.
The 2.0 TSI EA888 Gen 3 motor is a complete re-design from the previous Golf R. The exhaust manifold is integrated into the cylinder head and bathed in coolant, offering cooler exhaust gas temperatures and giving the Golf R's turbo better throttle response. The MK7 Golf R also has beefed up engine components compared with the MK7 GTI, such as a modified cylinder head, exhaust valves, valve seats and springs, pistons, injection valves and larger turbocharger. The MK7 MQB platform has already proven to be very tuner friendly on the ECU tuning/software side with enormous performance gains from just a tune. It also responds very well to aftermarket performance parts such as a cold air intake, downpipe, catback exhaust, upgraded diverter valve, or coilovers.
