The Volkswagen Golf R is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that outputs a whopping 292 bhp and 380 Nm of torque, making it one of the most powerful hatchbacks that you can buy.

All that power is transmitted through either a 6-speed DSG gearbox or a 6-speed manual (to be introduced sometime later) to Volkswagen's 4MOTION all-wheel-drive system, which helps the Golf R sprint from 0-100 km/h in a sports car-rivalling 4.9 seconds, before hitting a top speed limited to 250 km/h.

Being the range-topper, the Golf R is fitted with a 5.8-inch central touchscreen display with Sirius XM satellite radio, Bluetooth and iPod support, rear parking camera, ambient lighting, heated front seats with 12-way driver power seats, and dual zone climate control.
