2013 Volkswagen Golf R Review

Performance for a price
by Mark Atkinson

I love the way the Volkswagen Golf R sounds when you’re just pushing it. The whoosh of the turbo masking the slightly buzzy engine, while letting off quickly brings a hint of popping fuel on the overrun. It’s one of the surprising things I discovered during the week with Volkswagen’s newest halo performance car.


Halo car? Generally that term is reserved for six-figure supercars with uncountable horses underhood, but in the case of the Golf R, the idea fits. Production for North America is extremely limited; Canada sold out of its 500 allotted units within a few hours of being put on sale, while the United States might get five times that. So, say, 3,000 total for such a huge population means it’s just as rare as nearly any Porsche, Audi or Corvette.

And in the bright Rising Blue Metallic paint, enormous gaping air ducts, twin center-mounted exhaust and R-specific 18-inch wheels really help set the ultimate Golf apart from its more plebeian counterparts. Car-fans and VW nuts spotted it almost immediately.
