 im not too sure on this. i hated the mk7 when i saw the first pictures, but after i had been in one and seen it in the metal, i didnt actually mind it.

although, if the 'r' looks like this, no thanks. and if it comes up at 35k+ which it most likely will, no thanks.

although, im sure mk6 r's will soon drop in price

 300bhp and 280ftlbs not to bad, Think having the 2.5T 5 cylinder would make it abit more exciting! Idea

Quad exhausts on a 2L, erm

Like the front, quite subtle - doesn't shout at you, but agree, not too sure on the quad exhausts on the rear. Twin oval's would look quite nice, but 4 is a bit overkill.

 The new Golf R is the fastest-accelerating production Golf yet, with a zero to 62 mph time of just 5.3 seconds (compared with 5.7 seconds for the previous model), or 4.9 seconds when fitted with the optional six-speed DSG gearbox. Top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph.

sub 5 seconds to 60 isnt to bad either.

I rather like it. Didn't at first. I wonder what size those alloys are though, look huge!

 

And whats wrong with having quad exhausts?

Masses produced cars need mass appeal...therefore co2 is king.

the figures appeal but the s4 exhaust is a bit "meh"

Anyone else notice: "permanent all-wheel drive 4MOTION system" ?

I dont like it. Looks horrible Ick! I personally also don't like the way the 2L sounds either, and as mentioned quad exhausts just looks hideous and chavy!

I kinda like it BUT, I would love it if it had the 'Wörthersee concept' engine. 

Then the S4 exhausts would be fine.

If they'd got the most junior member of the Halfords body kit buying department to design something to appeal to people who lived on council estates,this is what it would look like.Sadly it has had "the VW" heart ripped out of it and replaced it with one from a zombieHuh?.

No chance... all the GTIs and Rs will be 2L until they turn to alternative fuels.

Hate it.

Erm, quad exhausts on a car with 290bhp.

???

 

Ask a woman she'd rather have a 4.0 that she really enjoys than a 6.0 with twin turbos that breaks down after 2 minutes.

Regardless of the engine size and power, personally i think the quad exhausts look stupid, the whole mk7 exterior styling is horrible IMO
