Golf 8 R elevates the hot hatch game for VW with more power

by SammyNovember 13, 2020

The latest VW Golf 8 R is going to be a crucial car for the German brand.

For decades, Golf has been the standard to which all other hatchback rivals are measured. This is especially true for the high-performance versions, cars such as the GTI and Golf R.

With Golf 8, VW must boldly start the transition to enhanced digitization. Not only in terms of the infotainment systems but also advanced powertrains.

VW GOLF 8 COULD BE LAST TO CARRY PROUD ‘R’ BADGE

VW has been open about its electrified future. But that does not mean it is sacrificing the brand’s most cherished performance car nameplate – quite yet. This new Golf R might be the final version to carry its proud “R” badge, but it promises to be a great send-off.

Golf GTI might have established VW’s dominance in the hot hatchback market, but it has been Golf R which has elevated the brand’s performance vehicle standing.
