Exterior – Shaped for performance

The design of the new Golf R: striking and full of expression. Starting with the brand new front bumper with its front spoiler, side wings and R-style air intake grilles above the exclusive side aprons and 18-inch Jerez alloy wheels, and stretching all the way through to the running gear, which has been lowered by 20 millimetres – the hallmark of an athlete. The R Performance package comes with optional highlights including a rear spoiler featuring a motorsport-style design and the 19-inch Estoril alloy wheels. For an even more superior look, there is the new rear bumper flanked by four chrome-plated twin tailpipes.

Interior – Welcome to the cockpit

The interior of the new Golf R welcomes you with a level of sporty comfort that you can both see and feel. The driver and front passenger sit back on premium sport seats with built-in head restraints with an R-style design. For the first time, the configurable Digital Cockpit Pro instrument cluster brings together all sporty displays and controls into one special R-view tailored specifically to the Golf R. Another standard feature: the Discover Media Infotainment system including voice control. And thanks to the specially designed multifunction sports steering wheel plus R button, the Race profile is always just the touch of a button away.

The star performer of its generation

Going from 0 to 62 mph in just 4.7 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph, the TSI engine develops 420 Newton metres of torque and an output of 320 PS which demonstrates what R is capable of. Its power is distributed with variable control thanks to the 4MOTION all-wheel drive system with R-Performance torque vectoring on the rear axle. Specially tailored for the Nordschleife track at Nürburgring, the Golf R with the optional R Performance package lifts the electronic limiter to the top speed, taking it from 155 mph to 167 mph, and also offers two exclusive driving profiles: the Nürburgring profile Special” and the “Drift” profile for optimum driving dynamics for private roads.

The new Golf R “20 Years”

Volkswagen R is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Golf R with an exceptional special-edition model. Some things cannot be expressed in words. The Golf R is one of them. It stands for driving pleasure for which there is no vocabulary. The world of emotions takes over when the R-button is pressed. It is then time to feel the R.
