The Golf R was just awarded the title of Best New Sports / Performance Car (under $50,000) by AJAC. Which means this hot hatch just got hotter.
Get ready for a ride that isn’t just up to speed with the latest technology – it outstrips it. With features like the standard App-Connect and rearview camera, you’ll be able to keep up with what’s going on in the world almost as fast as you leave it behind.
Connect the things that matter most – with Android Auto™, Apple CarPlay™, and MirrorLink™. The intuitive interface and voice command actions let you easily search anything online from songs, directions or even your favourite restaurant.
The Golf R has a ride you’ll have to feel to believe – if you can keep up. With a powerful 2.0 TSI® 292 HP engine under the hood, and 4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive at your fingertips, performance isn’t just a mantra. It’s a way of life.
We’ve engineered the 2.0 TSI® engine to inject fuel precisely for maximum performance and maximum efficiency.
With 4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive, the 2016 Golf R can navigate unfriendly terrain with ease by instantly reacting to changes in traction at each individual wheel and redirecting power accordingly. The result is better grip, smoother handling and a more peaceful drive.
Turn the corner on cornering with our standard wheel lock/stabilizer system. If a wheel spins after turning a corner, XDS will apply that wheel’s brake while directing better grip to it. Sporty never felt so safe.
With its tasteful “R” design grille, bumpers and side skirts, the Golf R says sporty in an intense whisper, rather than a raucous yell. Because we know you don’t want a vehicle that’s flashy – you want a vehicle that’s a flash.
You’re going to know your Golf R inside out. First you’ll notice its leather top sport seats. And then you’ll see the aesthetically pleasing “R” accents – a reminder of the unforgettable urban thrill ride to come.
It’s easy to get a handle on safety in the Golf R – and not just because it handles like a dream. When you’re in a vehicle that’s filled with cutting-edge safety features like our available Lane Assist and available Adaptive Cruise Control, it’s the safe way on the highway.
Sensors send a vibration to your steering wheel when you drift outside of your lane, making sure that when you hit the road, you always stay the course.
Adaptive Cruise Control is genius (if we may say so). It uses sensors to detect to the vehicle ahead, and then automatically adjusts your speed to help keep you at a safe distance without ever needing to adjust the gas or brakes – even in stop-and-go traffic.
