Injecting more Sport into Sport Utility Vehicle 

Through numerous generations, our Golf performance models have always been synonymous with the endearing term of ‘hot hatch.’ Now, with the introduction of Tiguan R, we set a new benchmark.  For the first time, Volkswagen owners can experience that same inherent level of performance, without compromising on space and practicality.

Get in quick – these special edition models simply will not last.

Over and above the exceptional standard specification, the 1st edition models of Golf R and Tiguan R include a special selection of additional features. Feel the wind in your hair with the added panoramic sunroof, or tune in to the Harman Kardon premium sound system. 

If you’re lucky enough to secure a Golf R 1st Edition, there are two additional drive modes that will really get your blood pumping. Choose from “Drift” and “Special – Nürburgring” for the ultimate R experience.
