Rivals Give 2017 Volkswagen Golf R The Cold Shoulder

By  | 

One of the top performance vehicles in the US has been the Volkswagen Golf R but things are about to change. This is because the Ford Focus RS is arriving and it is going to hog the spotlight and turn a cold shoulder on the Golf R.

The Volkwagen Golf R does offer up a great deal but then the Ford Focus RS isn’t lacking in any department and it is great competition. The Golf R on the market right now offers the 2 litre inline 4 engine and this comes with the six speed manual transmission. The engine gives around 22mpg when travelling in the city and 31mpg out on the highway. It offers 292 horses and 280 of torque.

While the Ford Focus RS is already a great vehicle there is more to it when it comes to the engine. This is the 2.3 litre inline 4 that comes with the six speed manual transmission. You get 250 horses from it along with 350 torque. It offers up fog lights, DRL and much more and this means that in our eyes the Focus RS comes out ahead.

But which vehicle comes out ahead in your eyes, is it the Ford Focus RS or the Volkswagen Golf R?
