    So, what makes the Golf R 333 Limited Edition different from the standard model? Let’s know.

    • The special Golf R is powered by the same turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine found on the standard Golf R, but here the power is uprated to 333 PS i.e. almost 14 PS more than the standard car. However, the torque remains unchanged at 420 Nm
    • The power is sent to all four wheels via a standard AWD system that lets the hatch sprint from 0 to 100 kmph in just 4.6 seconds, which makes it a tenth of a second quicker than the standard version 
    • The top speed is also increased to 270 kmph
