So the old R does 18.4 0-200 but this one is somehow over 2 seconds faster? Okay, either the power is highly underrated or it's a press car, because no regular AWD car can do this time.

It was not a press car, it was from a dealership

It's a VW, of course it's a press car ;) do you actually think they'd make it faster than the big sister Audi S3?

I overall don't really get VW's strategy here tbh. The Golf is suddenly faster AND more expensive. You won't see them do that with the Passat and the A4.
