When technology doesn't just progress, but races forward.
The new Golf R is more powerful than ever and shows how quickly technology is developing: at 228 kW (310 HP) and 400 Nm of torque with the DSG dual clutch transmission, it combines a true passion for motorsports with impressive performance and equipment.
It's like it was made for motorsports.
With a powerful 228 kW (310 HP), greater torque and remarkable acceleration levels, the new Golf R brings masterful power to the road.
With the Golf R, you're in pole position on the road, it accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds. This means that the new Golf R is not only the most powerful Golf there's ever been, but also the fastest.
Do you want to enjoy good grip, even while covering wet and rough grounds?
The permanent 4MOTION four-wheel drive distributes the TSI engine's power to all four wheels as required. This prevents wheelspin and helps your Golf R gain traction on virtually any surface. In combination with the 7-gear DSG dual clutch transmission, the new Golf accelerates efficiently without traction loss.
Keep an eye on the performance values.
How much power does the powertrain provide? How high is the charge pressure? Now you can always keep an eye on the technology. The Sport Human Machine Interface (HMI) will keep you informed about the performance of your Golf R. It gives you deep insight into the technology so that you can get the best from your Golf R. Directly on the screen of your infotainment system, it shows you current engine values such as the charge pressure and G-meter as well as the power currently being used. On the track, lap timers are used both to measure lap times and to show the current longitudinal and lateral acceleration.
Convenience is key.
Searching for your keys are now a thing of the past. You can start the engine of your Golf at the press of the starter button, while leaving your keys in your bag. Proximity sensors detect your key within 1.5 metres of the car, meaning it can automatically unlock as you pull the door handle. Keyless entry and start (KESSY).
Exterior. A Golf R through and through.
The standard LED headlights and the aggressively slick bumpers give this hot hatch a striking and powerful presence.
The sill extension in high-gloss black and the R logo on the side panels and rear lid also attract plenty of attention. The matching mirror caps in chrome matte provide the perfect finish to this striking design.
Interior. Effortlessly Striking.
Step into your Golf R and your pulse will soon be racing: the motorsport pedigree is continued in the details of the interior. The blue-illuminated door sill panels in stainless steel, carbon touch decorative trims with background lighting and pedal caps in stainless steel head in one direction only, and that's forwards.
The overall sports impression of the Golf R is further reinforced by the start screen with R logo and the gear knob in leather with aluminium fittings and decorative seams in crystal grey.
