The Volkswagen Golf is about to get a full revision, and is often the case with VW prior to it launching a new generation, some variants of the current model are being pulled in anticipation of rolling out the new one.
We recently reported on the cancellation of the Sportwagen and Alltrack wagons, for example.
Now comes confirmation the Golf R performance variant will also be absent from the VW roster in 2020. Speculation has been out there for several days now, and Volkswagen Canada has now confirmed that 2019 will be the last for the R version of the 7th-generation Golf.
However, VW Canada’s head of communications, Thomas Tetzlaff, also confirmed to us that the company here had ordered a TON of 2019 Golf Rs so that dealerships could continue to meet demand once the calendar flips to 2020.
