GERMANY, Berlin - Earlier in 2014, Wheels24 reported on Volkswagen’s Golf R arriving in South Africa. In May 2014, spy photographers captured a new variant in the automaker’s R-badged range – the Golf R Estate.

If the automaker decides to do so, the load-lugging Golf R variant will have the same  performance exterior modifications as the hatch – sporty bumpers (front and rear), huge wheels and a low ride height.
