However, it still posts a claimed 0-62mph time of 6.5sec – half a second quicker than the GTi – on the way to a limited 155mph top speed (we couldn’t get the GTi past 136mph). So the R32 is fast , but it is also a very accomplished high- speed cruiser.
Golf R – The R model has a 2.0 litre tuned Turbo engine. It’s a newer model and is aimed more at performance as opposed to comfort. It’s notably a lot quicker than the R32 . It has a 2.0 litre turbo engine (like the R ), however it’s designed for comfort as well as performance (like the R32 ).

At the drag strip, the Evo, with its 271-hp, 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four and five-speed manual, charges from 0 to 60 in 5.0 seconds and clips the quarter-mile in 13.6. Spurred by a 240-hp, 3.2-liter naturally aspirated V-6, the R32 is good for 0 to 60 in 6.0 and the quarter in 14.3.

Registered. My R32 has been THE most reliable car I’ve ever ownedand I don’t even know why cause I’ve owned like 10 VW’s and they’ve all been terrible so I should know better, but it’s been amazing.
The Volkswagen Golf R32 (also known as the Volkswagen R32 ) is a hot hatch produced from 2003 to 2008. The R refers to Volkswagen’s motorsport department, Volkswagen Racing. 32 stands for the engine’s displacement. As seen on the Mk4 R32 , it utilises Volkswagen’s 4MOTION all-wheel drive system.
The 2018 VW Golf R is all about potent performance thanks to its four-cylinder turbocharged and direct-injection TSI® 2.0-liter engine that is able to produce up to 292 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque.
The 2019 Volkswagen Arteon is the most powerful Volkswagen sedan in the lineup, with the new model coming standard with a 2.0-liter I-4 turbo engine. However, this engine offers the best output from the others, able to output 268 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque.
It may be a little more expensive than the GTI , but the Golf R is substantially faster, even better to drive and no less usable every day. Given its lofty reputation, the R is likely to hold more of its value over the coming years as well.
The R32 managed the 0-to-60 mph sprint in 6.2 seconds, but the GTI cleared the same hurdle in only 6.0 – 0.2 seconds faster . That may not seem like a significant difference, but the front-wheel drive GTI is severely traction limited.
GT. The best thing about the GT model is that the attractive 1.5-litre TSI EVO engine comes in at this level, which is one of the best engines for the car.
