Performance features in the Golf R

Here’s a little taste of what to expect:

2017 VW Golf R

Engine Power – First of all, the Golf R runs on a 2.0L TSI engine that grinds out 292 hp as well as 280 lb-ft of torque. Part of the explanation for such high rates is the fact that the Golf R was designed to fire on all four cylinders constantly. What’s more, the Golf R can zip from 0 to 60 mph in just under 5 seconds, making this one especially quick vehicle.

Transmission – Likewise, the Golf R features a 6-Speed DSG automatic transmission system with Tiptronic and Sport Modes. What this means is that you’ll be able to upshift and downshift using paddle shifters which are located within easy reach on the steering wheel, giving you super-accelerated shifting powers. At the same time, you can look forward to a 4MOTION® all-wheel drive system, which transfers torque between the front and back wheels for optimal driving.

DCC Adaptive Chassis Control – The Golf R gives you four modes of suspension firmness to choose from and can control damper valves adaptively, using a refined control algorithm. In consequence, the Golf R can adjust its damping force to realize optimal rates.

Efficiency – Finally, the Golf R offers up 22 mpg in the city** and 31 on the highway**, according to EPA estimates.
