VW Possibly Bringing Volkswagen Golf R 400 to U.S. Market

Volkswagen Golf R 400

When Volkswagen first revealed the Volkswagen Golf R 400 last year at the Beijing Auto Show, the industry couldn’t help but get a bit excited. Now, it looks like it’s possible that this high-power Golf hatchback might be coming to American soil—if Volkswagen decides to give it the production green light.

According to Dr. Heinz-Jakob Neusser, member of the VW board of management, the U.S. market is the perfect platform to introduce this sporty new hatchback. With the original Golf earning both Motor Trend Car of the Year and North American Car of the Year, it’s likely that the American market will respond well to a new edition of the hatchback.

The Volkswagen Golf R 400 combines the Golf’s sporty exterior with an even sportier powertrain, making it significantly more fun-to-drive. Now, it’s just a matter of whether or not the German carmaker will produce this super sporty hatch.

VW Golf Named 2015 North American Car of the Year

Volkswagen is known for its superior German engineering, which has never been as obvious as it is now. The German carmaker recently announced that the Golf and Golf GTI were recognized as the 2015 North American Car of the Year, showcasing Volkwagen’s performance prowess.

“Volkswagen is thrilled to start 2015 with the Golf and Golf GTI taking home the incredible North American Car of the Year title,” said Michael Horn, CEO for Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. “This award highlights our achievements and hard work in the past year, and we are confident that the Golf family will continue to pave the way for the brand in the year ahead.”

The cars beat out two other finalists, showcasing a superior design and available driver assistance features that can’t be beat. Add the availability of four different models within the Golf family—the two winners, plus the Golf TDI Clean Diesel and all-electric e-Golf—and it is easy to see why the Golf is considered one of Volkswagen’s best-selling cars in the US market.
