Today we have two fast all-wheel drive station wagons that compete against each other. A German and a Japanese vehicle. Specifically, it is a VW Golf R (MK7) and a Subaru WRX STI Wagon. While the Golf gives the classic sleeper, the look of the WRX is heavily brushed for riot. Both perform because of tuning 500 PS, but the Subaru will mean PPG straight-cut 5-speed gearbox switched, while the Golf R is a modern one 7-speed dual clutch transmission has installed. Incidentally, the STI only weighs 1.150 kg and the Golf R is still there despite various lightweight modifications 1.500 kg heavy. So it looks like the STI shouldn't have any trouble meeting the challenge.
Boxer engine vs. four-cylinder
A short sound check before the race reveals that the boxer engine sounds fantastic and that the four-cylinder engine of the Golf is left behind. In addition, the Japanese accelerates in only 3,16 seconds at highway speed. However, the heavier Volkswagen even makes it in 2,97 seconds. And on the quarter mile (402 meters)? One makes it over the finish line in 11,38 seconds at a speed of 125 mph (201 km / h) and the other makes it in 11,50 seconds and with 122 mph (196 km / h). The video shows you which time applies to which vehicle.
