Volkswagen Golf R Named a “2016 All-Star”

Golf RThe Volkswagen Golf R has always been a standout in versatility and style. But the 2016 Golf R has finally been recognized for its excellence. Automobile has named the Golf R to its 2016 list of All-Stars.

Automobile—a leading automotive lifestyle magazine—awards vehicles to this list every year based on style, class, importance, and desirability. This list is quite prestigious, and Golf R scored the honor being on it for the first time.

“Volkswagen Golf R wowed us with its potent performance on both road and track,” said Mike Floyd, Editor-in-Chief, Automobile. “But more than that, it’s also an incredibly practical package that can haul the mail as well.”

The latest Golf R is making strides from its previous models. It’s the most powerful version of the Golf yet, redefining the hatchback category. There’s space for five adults and significantly more trunk space than most sedans have. It boasts an amazing 292 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque without compromising its fuel economy with an estimated 31 highway mpg.

If you want to see for yourself just why it’s an “All-Star,” check the Golf R out at Gossett VW Germantown!
