  • Volkswagen MK8 Golf leak shows modest power increase for 2.0 turbo GTI and R models, 241 hp and 329 hp

    There were some who thought Volkswagen might get aggressive with the MK8 generation Volkswagen Golf and really attempt to appeal to enthusiasts. There was even discussion about a 400+ horsepower Golf R Plus that would really make a splash.


    Well, table your expectations.

    The MK8 Golf GTI gets 241 horsepower and the Golf R gets 329 horsepower. These increases are so modest the MK7 model can easily eclipse the figures with software tuning only.

    Expect minor revisions to the EA888 2.0 liter architecture.
