Where the Golf R makes its mark is in the combination of comfort and performance in a compact package.

Last year, we were introduced to different versions of the Volkswagen Golf - from the base variant to the GTI and more recently, a sneak preview of an electrified one, on its way to make its mark in Singapore's electric car market.

But if you are looking for more, and if the fantastic GTI isn't enough for you, it's time you meet its more muscular brother - the Volkswagen Golf R.

The new Lapiz Blue colour is a gorgeous one that catches the eye almost immediately

Developed by the very people from Volkswagen R GmbH, the Golf R is slated to be the fastest Volkswagen hatchback ever and offers a faster and more focused version of the iconic hatchback than the GTI.

Like before, the car is available in three (indent basis) or five-door versions, like the one we have here today.


Parked among its other brethrens, the Golf R may remain well-camouflaged from afar but look closer and you will start to realise a few distinctive aspects that don't come across as overly done.

Up front, the new Golf R features a larger air intake and a revised bumper. Put these together with the dual U-shaped Bi-Xenon headlights as well as the tweaked grille with an R logo and you get a really menacing stance.

Wing mirrors decked out in matt chrome, R badges along the fenders and twin exhaust pipes further distinguish the car from its regular brethrens.

18-inch wheels anchor the macho stance and also further enhance the sporty flavour
