VW Jetta R in the Works?

VW is looking to expand its R performance range. At the recent Jetta launch in Munich, VW showed off a version of the Jetta powered by a 3.6L V6 mated to a six-speed DSG and 4Motion all-wheel-drive. Although an R version of the Jetta hasn’t officially been signed off on, its a possibility.

VW’s R&D chief, Ulrich Hackenberg recently stated that a Jetta R is being evaluated, “If there are customers asking for it, we will do it,” he said. “It wouldn’t be a problem for us. The Jetta’s platform can take four-wheel drive.”
