The 2015 Volkswagen Golf R SportWagen should be released during next year, and with its release date so close, the new model is anticipated with great interest. The new model will come with some great features. Its style and design will remain recognizable and attractive, with the accent on the sporty and fun appeal. Its interior will be designed in a similar manner as the exterior, and it will be very cozy and functional. As for the powertrain, since this is a performance-oriented model, the new Golf R SportWagen will come with rather amazing powertrain setups. The manufacturer focused mainly on the performance of the new model and the fun it brings, so we are sure we will not be disappointed. As for the downsides of the new model, there still aren’t any announcements which claim that the new model will be released on the American market. Currently, the new 2015 VW Golf R SportWagen is developed for the European market only and there are those who believe that is how it is going to stay. On the other hand, the new model’s concept had its premiere at the New York Auto Show, meaning the manufacturer must be considering this option; otherwise such move would be futile. Regardless of its designated market, the new SportWagen will surely be a delight.
2015 Volkswagen Golf R SportWagen Body
The 2015 Volkswagen Golf R SportWagen will be underpinned by the famous MQB platform. This platform is very common among the VW models, and it has proven to be an excellent choice. Its light, yet tough structure will provide perfect underpinning for the new model without adding unnecessary weight. In addition, the new model will feature a low and stiff suspension, which is used for both the station wagon and hatchback versions of Golf R. In addition, the new model will come with 18-inch Cadiz wheels, which will make it look very sporty and aggressive. As for the exterior, the appearance of the Golf R SportWagen will be based on the Golf R hatchback. There will be little differences between the aforementioned models, except for those made due to different body types. The interior of the new model will, however, be very distinctive. The new 2015 VW Golf R SportWagen will have a very sporty cabin, with sport seats, optional leather upholstery and revised dashboard. The model will feature carbon elements, and its overall impression will be a bit more elegant and luxurious than what we are used to.
Powertrain: 2.0-liter Four-cylinder, DSG Transmission And 4MOTION Drive
The 2015 Volkswagen Golf R SportWagen will come with an interesting powertrain. It will be powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that can generate 290 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. This unit will be paired with a six-speed dual-clutch DSG transmission or a six-speed manual gearshift. As for the drive mode, the new station wagon will come with an all-wheel drive – the famous 4MOTION four-wheel drive, to be precise. The new model will accelerate to 60 mph from a standstill in just 5 seconds, which is great, but it will also come with interesting fuel economy. The new Golf R SportWagen will have fuel efficiency results at 19 mpg/city and 27 mpg/highway, which is rather good considering this is a performance vehicle.
2015 Volkswagen Golf R SportWagen Release
The 2015 Volkswagen Golf R SportWagen should be released during next year. Currently, we can’t say with certainty that the new model will be released on the U.S. market, but we are optimistic. The new station wagon has all it needs to be a very successful model on the American soil, and it seems like the audience on the NY Auto Show liked its concept. Therefore, we believe there is a great chance we will soon see one of these gazing down the streets of the USA.
