The Golf R

Once. And forever.

The Golf R: A car made for everyone who strives for more, while still staying true to their own principles. The embodiment of a new dimension of performance, which not only makes it the most elite member of the model series but also the star of the R-brand. From 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.7 seconds at an optional top speed of 270 km/h. The fourth stage in the evolution of the 2.0 l TSI engine with an output of 235 kW (320 PS) and the 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox (DSG) represent a very particular lifestyle: dynamic, progressive and inspiring.


There are many highlights in the Golf R. Here are three at a glance:

The rear of the VW Golf R


R-specific front bumpers and distinctive side sills reveal what the Golf R is capable of, even from the outside.


Bringing motorsports to the streets

The Golf R embodies a passion for motorsports and all the hallmark features of a model from the R-brand. Its extraordinary performance is obvious from the outset. The power from the latest generation of the legendary TSI engine is perfectly transferred to the road by the 4MOTION all-wheel drive system.


Turns heads

Doesn't just make a lasting impression on the road. The Golf R knows how to express its personality. The R-specific dynamic front bumpers are complemented by wide air vents – stretching from the distinctive side sills to the optional R-Performance Titanium Exhaust System with rear silencer in titanium from Akrapovič. The R-logo on the boot lid and the high-gloss black diffuser give a hint of the vehicle’s unique athleticism. The optional Lapiz Blue paintwork finish communicates elegance and quality, exemplifying the R-brand without abandoning its understatement.


Master of its class

Built for something great – an in-depth view of the race track. For the first time ever, the R-View in the Digital Cockpit Pro including a horizontal rev counter has been tailored to the Golf R and translates the feel of the race track into the vehicle interior. Press the R-button on the multifunction sports steering wheel and pick your preferred driving profile.
