2015 Volkswagen Golf R: North American International Auto Show
Why the 2015 Volkswagen Golf R Matters:
The newly minted 2015 Volkswagen Golf R sits on the same improved platform as the upcoming Golf and GTI models for 2015 and unseats the previous “R” in both power and fuel economy. With a refined interior and improved handling capabilities, it should hit a sweet spot for the more discriminating road warrior, competing against the less sophisticated Subaru WRX STI or Mitsubishi Evo. The challenge is that the price will rival many entry-level luxury vehicles (probably in mid-to-high $30’s), so justifying the purchase will demand a dedicated fan – and Volkswagen has many.
