Volkswagen Golf R 0-60 times

Out of all performance specs, nothing but Volkswagen Golf R 0-60 times can better speak about the vehicle's temper. While horsepower and torque blow smoke in the eyes, Golf R zero to sixty specs and average time to run a quarter mile are pretty straightforward metrics allowing to compare against its competitors.

Very often there is no chance of doing Golf R 0-to-60 test personally and making conclusions from the experience of the other drivers is the last thing you want.

Conducting a trustworthy test drive requires following a strict methodology that is intended to eliminate the inconsistent circumstances like weather, tires, surface, engine temperature. It is always better to leave it for professionals.


Increase Horsepower

The cold air part is also important in making more power. Cold air is denser and contains more oxygen molecules than warm air does. So if you can get cooler air into your Volkswagen Golf R engine, your car will be able to mix more fuel with that air, making more power. Combine that with the more air through the larger and less restrictive filter and intake tube and you can see up to a 15-20 horsepower increase. K&N has even reported an estimated increase of 56.96 horsepower out of the 57-2571 intake for 2007-2009 Shelby GT500!

Volkswagen Golf R - 3 or 5-door C-class hatchback with all-wheel drive. This is the sports edition of the seventh generation of the Volkswagen Golf. The premiere of the model took place at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2016. The flagship Golf model has external changes that are common for the entire production line. Thus, the designers revised the bumper, as well as the optics which are now diode.

This modification is distinguished by brand nameplates on the radiator grille and trunk lid, enlarged rims (18 or 19 inches), black brake calipers with a proprietary logo, and also four pipes of the exhaust system, located in pairs. The interior of the Golf R can be recognized by decorative inserts made of metal, decorative stitching covered with high-quality materials, as well as sports seats. Located in the center console, the 9.2-inch touchscreen display is capable of showing information such as boost pressure or the values ​​of the overload experienced. In addition, when driving a race track, the lap time is recorded, and the current values ​​of the longitudinal and transverse accelerations are recorded. The system of additional equipment of the updated vehicle now includes the recognition of gestures and Wi-Fi. In the basic version, the car is equipped with the 4Motion all-wheel-drive system, as well as a customized independent suspension.

The Golf R make it from 0 to 60 in 4.6 seconds thanks to a 2-liter turbo engine venting 310 of horsepower and developing 400 Nm of torque. It works in tandem with a proprietary robotic gearbox 7-DSG or 6-speed mechanics. It turns out, this is an assault on super hatchbacks like Audi S3 and Mercedes-Benz A 45. And Golf also knows how to be all-wheel drive. An updated version of the 4Motion system - Haldex coupled with electronically controlled XDS Plus - puts the rear axle at work. We have already met the XDS system at GTI, but Plus adds the rear axle to the equation. And although it's 94 kg heavier than the GTI with the Performance Pack, it's lighter than the previous R. With a pair of fat guys on board, the weight difference does not matter at all, plus the power has become much higher.

Golf R - the true embodiment of sportiness, and not only judjing by the external attributes. The content of this car completely corresponds to the form - whether it's an energetic interior or a herd of horses under the hood.
