Performance

The Golf R's 2.0-liter turbocharged engine delivers up to 292 horsepower and 280 lb.-ft. of torque. This is paired to either a standard 6-speed manual transmission or 6-speed DSG automatic transmission with Tiptronic and Sport Mode. The model also comes standard with 4MOTION® all-wheel drive. Putting this all together, the Golf R is capable of sprinting from 0 to 60 mph in only 4.9 seconds.

 

Technology

The Golf R has VW's new and intuitive infotainment system, which allows you to stay connected to your smartphone via an available VW Car-Net App-Connect system that integrates Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Other high tech features include available driver assistance systems like Blind Spot Monitor, Park Pilot, and Lane Departure Warning.

 

Versatility

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. Choose between Normal, Individual and Race, which is designed for track driving with increased damping and sportier shift points. Individual mode allows you to combine multiple settings.
