The sportier version of the compact family is still being tested, although it is practically uncovered. The new Volkswagen Golf R Variant 2021 has been hunted again in winter tests, where the top of the range with 320 hp has been just a month. Last rehearsals before a presentation that will not be delayed for much longer.
It was seen, for the first time, on August 18, and it also did so on the same day just a month ago on the snowy roads near Lapland. In those frozen lares the Volkswagen Golf R Variant 2021, the most practical and sporty version of the compact family. Seven months of development, and tuning in different scenarios.
The spy photos show the most powerful variant of the Volkswagen Golf Variant range, once again in winter tests, and in the same condition as the previous occasion, with practically no camouflage. In fact, on the front there is not a single adhesive film that hides modifications, the design of the the large grille that spans the full width of the bumper, enhanced by glossy black trim of the Volkswagen model.

In addition, it is appreciated a blue filament under the fine daylight that stretches between the headlights, on the upper rack. A typical detail of the more sporty Volkswagen R models. The same color that appears on the high-performance brake calipers after the 18-inch and 19-inch alloy wheels. A very attractive contrast to the body color, “Pure White”, precisely in the palette of this model.
From behind, the 2021 Golf R Variant also looks uncovered, but with changes compared to the five-door model. The placement of the license plate on the tailgate will detract from the high-performance letter, not as much as the four large round exhausts that appear under the rear apron, and which will be more noticeable to the ear with the Akrapovič system.
With a tailored interior and special decoration, the 2021 Volkswagen Golf R Variant will keep the same technical configuration of the five-door compact. The gasoline engine 2.0 TSI with 320 hp maximum power, automatic dual clutch transmission 7-speed DSG, and 4Motion all-wheel drive. A set with which it will offer great benefits, highlighting an acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in less than 5 seconds, and with a minimum boot volume of 611 liters.
