  • MKVII Golf R wagon coming, just not to the USA - Spy photos

    The new MKVII Golf R is a pretty sweet ride. 296 horsepower turbocharged 2.0 liter four cylinder, optional DSG dual clutch transmission, and all wheel drive. The spy photos you see show the Golf R wagon testing. How do you know it is a Golf R? It has the same wheels and front fascia. The exhaust tips are disguised but Volkswagen is not trying to hide what this is. There also is the big 'R' symbol right in the grille that should alleviate any doubt. That begs the question, will it come to the United States?

    Most likely not. We never get the cool stuff so this should not be any different. The wildcard is that the Golf Sportwagon will be available for sale in the USA so there certainly is a chance. Volkswagen has yet to comment on the US availability.

      VWOA: our sales suck.
      US Enthusiasts: Bring the good stuff. We will buy it and more unique products will elevate your brand.

      VAG: Here's a cool new Golf Variant.
      VWOA: We don't want that thing. Wagons don't sell.
