Our most powerful engine yet

Ultimate drive power distribution

Handle every road like a racetrack with all-wheel-drive 4MOTION with R-Performance Torque Vectoring. The feature distributes the engine’s output not just between the front and rear axles, but also variably between the two rear wheels for outstanding grip and stability.

Exclusive driving profiles

Take control of the Golf R’s ride and handling characteristics when you select from among six available driving profiles. Set your pulse racing when you press the ‘R’ logo on the steering wheel to activate the ‘Race’ driving profile setting. Send it into overdrive when you choose one of two exclusive R Performance driving profiles – ‘Drift’ for exhilarating drifting capability away from public roads and ‘Special’, which has been tuned for the exacting conditions of the Nürburgring-Nordschleife.

Precision handling, maximum agility

The Golf R’s assured all-wheel drive system finds full expression when it’s networked via a Vehicle Dynamics Manager (VDM). The integrated system performs minor braking interventions and alters damper compression on selected wheels to provide optimal traction and precise driving control.

Help when you need it most

The new Golf R comes with a range of driver assistance aids designed to make driving as enjoyable as possible. Travel Assist allows for partially automated driving across a range of speeds, from stop/start city driving through to highway speeds. And Front Assist is invaluable in cases where emergency action must be taken to prevent a collision.3

Ready for stress-free parking?

Take the stress out of reverse parking and avoid nasty bumps and scrapes with semi-autonomous parking technology that can help you steer into even the most challenging of parking spaces.3

Protection when you need it most

Every Golf R is packed with safety features designed to prevent an accident happening and mitigate the consequences of an unavoidable collision. Foremost among the clever technology contained in every Golf R is Proactive Occupant Protection. When a potential incident is detected, the system automatically tightens the front seat belts and closes the side windows (leaving a small crack) and sliding roof (if open) to better protect vehicle occupants.3
