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.

Golf R


TSI Engine


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.


Quick off the mark

The 4MOTION all-wheel drive system distributes the TSI engine's power to all four wheels as required. This prevents wheelspin and helps your Golf R gain traction on virtually any surface. In combination with the 7-speed DSG dual clutch transmission, the new Golf R accelerates efficiently without traction loss.
