The Volkswagen Golf R, then, is almost the anti-Golf, with its 292 horsepower and all-wheel drive system making it a true performer in every sense of the word.
And now the Golf R is available yet again in Canada for 2016.
The automaker chose the race track as the perfect spot to launch the new car, and Motoring TV was on hand to take it all in.
