March 29th, 2016 by

Here at Speedcraft Volkswagen, we know that the Volkswagen Golf R is a great, quality car, so it’s always great to see it get the recognition it deserves. Earlier this month, Volkswagen America announced that the 2016 Volkswagen Golf R was listed among Automobile’s “2016 All-Star” list. Commending the Golf R for its impressive “practicality and punch”, this is the first time the Golf R has been named an Automobile “All-Star”.

As a leading automotive lifestyle print and online brand, Automobile’s endorsement comes as a great honor for the Golf R, which was first introduced last spring.

According to Automobile, the 2016 Volkswagen Golf R offers impressive performance both on the road and on the racetrack, and an even more impressive combination of practicality and value. Any driver can feel like a race car driver behind the wheel of the Golf R thanks to its powerful engine, sporty handling and eye-catching design.

The latest version of the Golf R was first introduced in 2015 and is the most powerful version of the Golf to ever be sold in the U.S. market. It offers a spacious interior and more cargo space than some mid-size sedans, making it ideal not only for commuters, but as a family vehicle as well.

Under the hold of the Golf R sits a 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder, turbocharged direct-injection TSI engine that’s capable of an impressive 292 horsepower and 280 lb.-ft. of torque, creating an exhilarating drive that will leave you pinned to the back of your seat.
