    Details of the all-new Golf R were released Tuesday. The car increases the power and fuel efficiency of the current model, which we tested last year.

    The engine in the new Golf R is similar to that in the upcoming GTI, though its been tuned for more power. Volkswagen says the R will have 296 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, numbers that are up 40 and 37, respectively, over the outgoing Golf R.

    That power is coming from a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine with direct injection and variable valve timing. It’s paired with either a six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed dual clutch automated manual, known as DSG.

    All-wheel-drive remains standard on the R, and Volkswagen says it will do zero-62 mph in 5.3 seconds with the manual -- almost half a second faster than its predecessor. The DSG gearbox will do the same run in 4.9 seconds. Top speed is limited to 155 mph.

    The GTI fits me perfectly since I'm tall. VW needs to stop conforming to the boring american tastes and trying to copy cars like the corolla and camry :puke: The new Jettas and Passats have been so boring.

    Golf R is AWD and GTI is FWD. The Golf R gets bigger brakes and about 40 extra hp as well.

    The DSG is the fucking shit and by that I mean it's awesome. My buddy had a 2007 or 2008 GTI with the DSG and it is really amazing for an automatic transmission.
