Unleash the monster inside.

The Golf R combines raw, turbocharged power with impressive handling and performance all packed in a sophisticated form. Rev up power within.

Shoves the performance envelope.

It's no secret that the Golf R knows how to perform. But with impressive power that takes it from 0 to 60 in 4.9 seconds and around the Nurburgring in 8:15, clearly it's not holding back.

  • 292 hp/280 lb-ft of torque
  • Turbocharged 2.0T in-line 4-cyl engine
  • 4MOTION all-wheel drive
  • 6-sp DSG automatic transmission

Confidence that doesn't slip.

The Golf R delivers power where it's needed most, improving handling. And the finely tuned suspension helps keep the tires planted.

  • Mk.7 Golf (MQB) chassis
  • Progressive variable-ratio steering
  • XDS+ w/ 4 electronic differential locks
  • DCC Dynamic Chassis Control w/3 modes

Beauty, in a Beast.

From state-of-the-art technology to sophisticated style elements, the Golf R balances its impressive performance with unexpected refinement.

  • Dual exhaust with quad tips
  • R badging/blue interior ambient lighting
  • VW Car-Net App-Connect for smartphones
  • Top Sport seats

It's a thoroughbred that's also a workhorse.

The Golf R does more than deliver power. With seating for five, plenty of cargo room, and no compromise on versatility, it's also a wonderfully functional example of what a performance hatch can be.

  • 31 mpg highway
  • 60/40-split, folding rear seats
  • Adjustable cargo floor
  • Auto-dimming rearview mirror

Front Assist

The available Forward Collision Warning system (included in Front Assist) has sensors in the front to help monitor traffic and can alert you to a potential collision. If a collision is imminent, Autonomous Emergency Braking (included in Front Assist) can help brake the car.

Lane Assist

When moving, the available Lane Departure Warning (Lane Assist) can sense if you start to drift into another lane without using the turn signal. On most models, Lane Assist will help steer to help keep you in the correct lane.

10 years on 10 Best. A nice pat on the hatchback.

We're thrilled every year. But this year makes it a perfect ten. Car and Driver has once again named the Golf, Golf GTI, and Golf R to the 10 Best for the tenth year in a row.
