The new and improved VW Golf R takes on the Audi S4 sport sedan in our latest video in our U-Drags series. In this drag racing video, Lauren McCay from Edmunds heads back out to the dry lake bed with the 2022 Audi S4 and the 2022 Volkswagen Golf R to see which one of these high-performance German cars is the fastest. After a two-year absence, the Golf R hot hatch is back and loaded with more horsepower than the previous generation. But will it be enough to take down the high-performance S4 sport sedan and its turbocharged 349-horsepower V6 engine? Which car has the better 0-60 time? Lauren answers these questions and more in our latest U-Drag race between the Audi S4 and the VW Golf R.
What is a U-Drag race? A U-Drag race consists of both cars heading down the track like a standard drag race, then braking hard, flipping around and then heading back.
