A 2.0L TSI® turbocharged engine is the heart of the Golf R, pumping out 292 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque for a drive that proves even hatchbacks can make the track. An available 7-speed DSG® automatic transmission with Tiptronic® puts that power to the pavement with efficiency while the paddle shifters grant the control and satisfaction of manual shifting.
The Golf R’s pursuit of the cutting edge doesn’t end under the hood. A digital cockpit display leaves the traditional instrument cluster behind in favor of a high-resolution digital display, the 8” touchscreen makes navigation clean and intuitive, and VW App-Connect makes integration with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto® simple.
With seven-stability enhancing features, a strong and durable safety cage and several active safety features, it’s plain to see what’s most important to the Golf R. Technologies like Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Assist and Blind Spot Monitor make high-speed driving safer for everyone, while the available Pedestrian Monitoring system and standard rear-view camera system make even mundane driving scenarios more secure.
