If we asked you to name us the most powerful model in the Volkswagen family, we wouldn’t be surprised if you answered with either the Tiguan or Atlas, the brand’s two largest vehicles. However, the answer is actually the Golf R, a hatchback with laser-precise performance and an ultra-sleek design that’s sure to impress and turn heads around every corner.
