Golf R
Feel the thrill

Feel the power of the Golf R

They say a lot of things about the Golf R. That it's potent at the throttle, with plenty of traction, grip and torque. That it's class-leading in space, interior, and all-round driver appeal. And that it’s the ultimate high-performance machine both on the streets and on the track. But those are all things better experienced than explained. Drive it for yourself. 


Pure power

Go from 0 to 100 in 4.8 blistering seconds with Golf R's 213kW 2.0L turbocharged petrol engine. You'll want to strap in for this one, as you hit a peak torque of 380Nm from only 1850rpm.

Design and navigation

Makes its presence felt

The Golf R has a striking, sharp design and colour range that turns heads wherever it goes. Sleek front and rear bumpers, lower air intake and guard panels, premium LED lights and arrestive 19-inch Spielberg alloy wheels, all work together to create the Golf R's inescapable presence.


Staying inside the lines

The Lane Assist feature detects lane markings to assist you staying within your lane, making your drive more comfortable in heavy traffic.

Golf R Wagon: same performance, more space

The ultimate high-performance machine now comes with extra space. How much space? An impressive 605 litres of boot space and an enormous 1,620 litres with the seats down. It comes with 60/40 split folding rear seats, a sturdy luggage compartment floor and luggage partition net. The Golf R Wagon combines the practicality of a wagon with unrivaled performance.
