Tiguan R five pot!?

Recommended Posts

Of course the Audi 5 pot itself originally started life as a 2.5 VW-only straight five for the North American Jetta, before RS got hold of it (an changed it beyond recognition).

They could still fit it in the Golf if they wanted..but that's not going to happen

Excellent idea. I really like the new Tiguan and a hot model would be awesome!

 

Hopefully they'll consider putting the Audi engine into a Golf R at some point in the future. That I would most definitely buy if the price was right.

Then they could call it the Golf R MK 9 😃

Low output too....emoji47.png

 

If it's the same turbo (hopefully it will be) it'll tune 👍

Last chance saloon for the Golf and this engine will surely be the MK8. By the MK9 I'd hope it's a hybrid high output 2.0 litre in the Golf R.
