The fight against time is unfair - from the point of view of time
When every hundredth of a second counts, everything has to fit. With the Golf R, Volkswagen R has created the prerequisites for this and is bringing motorsport to the road. As soon as the vehicle is started, the engine shows its potential with a powerful sound. A foretaste of what comes next: Because 221 kW (300 hp) make the Golf R more powerful than any of its predecessors and accelerate it to 100 km / h in 4.9 seconds. Even time has to surrender.
So that not only you, but also the tones are perfect
Can you imagine that music in the car sounds better than from your hi-fi system? The optionally available DYNAUDIO Excite sound system is matched to the acoustics of the vehicle and provides you with a sound that you would not expect - even if you are used to high-end sound.
It's nice when you can choose the co-pilot yourself
In your Volkswagen, you determine what's going on. The standard "Composition Media" radio is available for this purpose: with suitable speakers, easy-to-use technology and many connection options. Or you can use one of the two navigation systems that hardly leave anything to be desired in terms of multimedia. Enjoy it when the company depends entirely on you.
Don't drive without internet anymore
The Internet can be useful in many areas of life - including in the car. For example, keep an eye on traffic with current data. In this way, you can plan or change your route in advance. The optional Car-Net "Guide & Inform" ¹ online services offer even more.
4MOTION The intelligent all-wheel drive
With the intelligent 4MOTION all-wheel drive, the concentrated engine power is distributed to all four wheels as required. This improves traction and enables even more impressive acceleration. 4MOTION also increases safety when cornering quickly and on wet or slippery roads.
Adaptive chassis control DCC Choose the sportiest connection between car and road
Sporty, comfortable or economical? The driving profile selection with the "Race" mode specially developed for the Golf R Variant allows you to easily adapt the vehicle to your needs at the push of a button or via the touchscreen of your navigation system. The adaptive chassis control DCC, which adjusts each damper individually to the road surface and the driving situation within milliseconds, offers even more precise coordination.
Engine This sporty engine will inspire you
As soon as you open the bonnet you will notice the silver "R" logo, which makes it clear that the 221 kW (300 hp) unit is not an ordinary engine. Because the heart of the most powerful Golf Variant of all time combines intelligent turbocharging with efficient direct injection and gives the term performance a new meaning.
You will have to get used to this: Lots of space to the rear
The interior of the Golf R Variant also proves that size and sportiness are not mutually exclusive. With the optional leather upholstery you can also give it a particularly elegant touch.
The best place on the route
The proximity to motorsport is noticeable as soon as you get in. In the top sports seats in the optional black "Vienna" leather you will immediately feel ready for the first round. You will quickly notice that a race track atmosphere and comfort do not have to be mutually exclusive. The inlays "Carbon Touch" on the dashboard and the door panels as well as the door sills in stainless steel characterize the interior, which will cast its spell over you at the latest after switching on the lights in the typical R blue.
Perfect view on the racetrack
The LEDs in a distinctive double U shape give the bi-xenon headlights a determined look. Daytime running lights and dynamic cornering lights are integrated. The large air inlets in the bumper, the shiny black radiator grille and the 18-inch "Cadiz" alloy wheels with 225 wide tires leave no doubt as to the intentions of the Golf R Variant: It doesn't just want to play.
