Other high tech features include available driver assistance systems like Blind Spot Monitor, Park Pilot and Lane Departure Warning.



Versatility in the Golf R goes beyond the model's hatchback access and maximum cargo space of 52.7 cu. ft. Like we said, the model is capable of an impressive 31 mpg highway, but you can also customize your driving experience with Driving Mode Selection.
