2019 GTI vs 2019 R

2019 Golf GTI and 2019 Golf R Comparison

The Volkswagen Golf is an icon. It’s one of the most produced vehicles. Ever. The Golf GTI, when it was introduced back in 1975, single-handedly pioneered the concept of a hot hatch.

Volkswagen Golf R vs Golf R400

After nearly two years as a concept car, Volkswagen has finally said that it will produce a limited run of the Golf R400, the most powerful Golf ever. The final version of the car will make its debut in March at the Geneva International Motor Show. But rumor has it the car will no longer be called the R400.

Instead of a supercar-beating 200 hp per liter, it will be making an unheard-of 210 hp per liter. Before we get carried away, let’s see how the current R400 concept compares to the real-world Golf R.
