New Volkswagen Golf R To Be Introduced On November 4th

With an expected 316 horsepower, the next Volkswagen Golf R will undoubtedly please fans


  • The next Golf R should be the most powerful ever.

  • It’s part of VW’s #MissionR plans.

  • The Golf R completes the new MK8 Golf family.


The new 8th-generation Volkswagen Golf will not be coming to Canada or the US, sadly. The compact hatchback has lost ground to VW’s SUVs and now that the Taos is out in the open, the deal is sealed. However, we will get the Golf GTI and we’ve been promised the potent AWD Golf R. Now we know when we’ll get to see the final production version.

The official all-things-R account on Instagram, VWR, has just shared a brief video entitled #MissionR in which we learn that the new Golf R will officially be revealed on November 4th. The quick spot also shows the T-Roc R, a compact SUV not destined for North America.

The 2021 Volkswagen Golf R (possibly 2022 at the earliest for North America) will likely be powered by the same turbocharged 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine currently doing duty in the Arteon and Tiguan R models. It produces 316 horsepower and 310 lb.-ft. of torque. In these two models, the mill is mated to a DSG transmission and AWD.

We assume the Golf R will return with a manual transmission and the optional DSG. Europe will get a wagon variant however there’s little chance it will come here. Sadly.
