The strongest Volkswagen Golf worldwide - R-badged variant, will be available having reduced power for protecting the engine from that hot climate in Australia. Which means the vehicle would not be found with the final output of 266 hp (199 kW) but with 252 hp (188 kW), torque will be the same - 350 Nm – reported drive.com.au.
So, the Australian Golf R made by Volkswagen will be (in performance) similar with Audi S3 (the local model), powered also by a changed 2.0-liter variant.
Volkswagen – the local department is expecting the sales to be also affected by this change, as the final numbers on performance will be similar to its original car.
Karl Gehling – the spokesman said if it's not tested (drive), it can’t really assess the performance difference between these 2 engine settings. But it’s not likely to modify the car driving characteristics. Its performance will be close, even if the impact on consumption of fuel is not known yet.
Volkswagen Golf R is coming in Europe, having a 4-cylinder 2.0-liter powerplant that makes 270 PS - 6,000 rpm, propelling the auto from zero to one hundred km/h in only 5.7 seconds. The old unit, that presents a 3.2-liter engine, did in 6.5 seconds, the same thing.
Its DSG gearbox is improving the acceleration of the all-new Golf R, helping it hit 100 km/h in just 5.5 seconds. And for the consumption of fuel, the basic setting is burning out 8.5 liters gasoline / 100 km (27.6 mpg) and it released 199 grams CO2 per km (that's down from 255 g/km). So, this DSG is reducing the CO2 emissions - 195 g/km plus the consumption of fuel to 8.4 l/100km (28 mpg).
