Default Golf Wagon R 2016

I sure hope Canada gets it. Apparently only the wagon for now and R will have to wait.

http://driving.ca/volkswagen/golf/au...-l-a-auto-show

"Under the hood, the Golf R Variant is identical to its hatchback counterpart. Itís powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine, rated at 296 horsepower and 280 lb.-ft. of torque. In North America, we get an additional 10 lb.-ft. of torque, but that doesnít make up for the fact we probably wonít be able to buy the Variant when the Golf R hits dealers early next year."

This car would be a beast! But it probably will have a hard time making it to North America like any other wagon

here's the diesel version in GTI trim:

If VW brought this here, maybe it would convince Subaru to bring the Levorg.

I hope pricing would be similar to the regular Golf R

I never use my sunroof anyway.
Exciting time to be in the market coming up with the Focus RS and rumoured Civic Type R coming to NA.

I heard something about a new AWD Mazdaspeed 3 coming soon too. Would love to see a comparison on Top Gear of:
Subaru WRX STi
Ford Focus RS
Mazda(speed3)
Honda Civic Type R
VW Golf R
And maybe throw in a couple of the euro options like the Renault Megane RS or Seat Leon Cupra R.

Pretty good news, the R now stands for Regular, and will be just like ordering a GTi: https://shopvw.wordpress.com/2014/11...ration-golf-r/

Quote:
We are pleased to provide you with an update on the product details and launch plans for the next generation Golf R in Canada. The last generation of the Golf R was a huge success in our market, despite being available in limited quantities and for a limited production run. The next generation model will be available for a full 5 year lifecycle and, as such, be part of your regular Golf allocation.
VW Canada plans to launch the all-new Golf R in the late summer of 2015 as a 2016 model. Rather than launch the Golf R at the same time as the GTI Performance (as is to be the case with VWoA), launching at the commencement of the 2016 model year will allow us to able to bring to market all the new features and technology available with these models, and will also allow us to offer both transmissions from the time of launch. Standard features include:
 2.0 TSI engine featuring 292 hp/280 lb.-ft. torque
 4MOTION all-wheel drive
 Standard 6 speed manual transmission
 Available 6 speed DSG automatic
 19 inch “Cadiz” alloy wheels with summer performance tires
 Bi-Xenon headlights with LED DRL’s and AFS
 MIB Generation II Infotainment
 Discover Media Navigation
 Fender Premium Audio
 Dynamic Chassis Control
 Leather Top Sport Seats
 12 way power driver’s seat
 Climatronic
 KESSY
 Rear View Camera
You may have noticed that a sunroof is missing from the list of features on the all-new Golf R. This is the case for all North American cars as engineering for the Golf R was shared with the eGolf to speed up its arrival into our market. We will continue to work with the factory to offer a sunroof on the Golf R sometime during its 5 year lifecycle.
We plan to offer the Golf R in a variety of exterior colours, including the feature colour Lapiz Blue Metallic, Tornado Red, Deep Black Pearl and Reflex Silver Metallic. For the first time on a Golf, Oryx White Pearl will be available at extra cost. A photo of a European-spec Golf R in the new Lapiz Blue Metallic with the 19 inch “Cadiz” alloy wheels can be seen below.
The Golf R will also be available with a Technology Package that adds several Advanced Driving Assistance features to the mix along with the eagerly awaited Discover Pro navigation system. Further details will be provided prior to the start of dealer orders, currently planned for March 2015 (June Production).

The official unveiling of the Golf R, price announcement and start of the pre-sales
campaign will occur on Press Day of the 2015 Canadian International Auto Show which
will take place in February 2015 in Toronto.

Always by your side,

Natasha at Pfaff VW | 905-895-2366
