2020 Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR – Performance Review
After almost 2.3 million VW Golf GTIs produced, a new evolutionary stage of the sports icon arrives the Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR that reaches 260 km/h top speed.
World-class compact sports car, the Volkswagen Golf GTI has been produced in 7 generations and sold in almost 2.3 million units. From the day of its debut, which took place in 1976, the DNA of this lucky model has always remained the same: compact two-volume body, lightweight, four-cylinder bright, front-wheel drive, perfect chassis, red inserts in the radiator grille, classy design. Nevertheless, from generation to generation, the model has been gradually perfected and redefined. The new evolution stage of this compact sports car is the 2020 Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR which can reach 260 km/h.
A road version, derived from motorsport, of the homonymous race car twice winner of the international TCR championship. The new flagship model of the GTI range has a 2.0-liter turbo engine capable of developing 290 horsepower between 5,400 and 6,400 rpm. So the GTI TCR is 45 hp more powerful than the current Golf GTI Performance.
The power is transmitted as standard to the front wheels via a DSG 7-speed dual clutch transmission and a transverse locking differential. To handle the highest engine power in any situation with adequate cooling, the Golf GTI TCR is equipped with two additional coolant radiators, such as those fitted to the Golf R with all-wheel drive.
The maximum standard speed is 250 km / h, but the 2020 Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR can reach 260 km / h requiring the elimination of electronic limitation. The Golf GTI TCR reaches 100 km/h in 5.6 seconds. The efficiency of the four-cylinder and 16-valve engine combined with a particulate filter for petrol engines is demonstrated by the combined consumption (NEDC): 6.7 l/100 km.
