During a media event in Wolfsburg, Germany today, Volkswagen confirmed that it will sell a version of the Golf R in the United States. The Golf R, which will be known as the GTI-R in the U.S., will replace the R32.
Along with Volkswagen’s 4Motion all-wheel-drive system, the GTI-R will get 2.0L TSI 4-cylinder engine making 265-hp with a peak torque of 258 lb-ft. The engine will be mated to a 5-speed manual or Volkswagen’s DSG automatic with manual mode.
Look out for the Volkswagen GTI-R to hit U.S. dealerships later next year with a price slightly above the 2010 GTI, which starts at $23,489.
