Next year they releasing the RS 4x4 which styling still resembles the current model RS not the new facelift model with the split headlights Should make a very nice alternative to the Golf R

I'd argue the 206kW Superb wagon is the Golf R wagon alternative. Down by 16kW/30Nm but higher spec, bigger and $16k cheaper.

Agree the Superb is nice, in fact if the current model came out in Manual I'd be tempted, but nothing a tune can't fix to get it to where it needs to be aye ;)

There's a Superb wagon in the UK running over 500bhp.

This allowed for a very impressive 11.46 ¼ mile, a time comparable to the time of a Lamborghini Huracan :)

Got links to photos and specs? We are still hunting for a used Golf R but the new 230RS looks great, but lacking AWD and just a tad too large for us.

Its still based on the same chassis and size.

I thought I read that there'll be a petrol version but upon further reading it looks to be Diesel option only at this stage? which is by no means a Golf R equivalent, so at this point the 206KW Superb 4x4 is the closest thing to the Golf R
