New Volkswagen Golf R

The Golf R

When technology doesn't just progress, but races forward.

Discover all the features

The new Golf R is more powerful than ever and shows how quickly technology is developing.


From the racetrack directly to the road: thanks to the permanent 4MOTION four-wheel drive and powerful TSI engine with turbocharger technology and direct injection, you can enjoy an extraordinary driving experience.


With a powerful 310 PS, greater torque and remarkable acceleration levels, the new Golf R brings masterful power to the road.

It's like it was made for motorsports.

The new Golf R is not only the most powerful Golf there's ever been, but also the fastest. Thanks to its starting performance and DSG dual clutch transmission, it accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds. The combination of direct injection and intelligent turbocharging as well as higher torque (+20 Nm) guarantee an exceptional driving experience.

Maintain traction

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

Keep an eye on the performance values

The Sport Human Machine Interface (HMI) gives you deep insight into the technology so that you can get the best from your Golf R. On your infotainment system, it shows you current engine values such as the charge pressure and G-meter as well as the power currently being used. On the track, lap timers are also used to show the current longitudinal and lateral acceleration.

Equipment & design

The premium equipment in a motorsports look and the clean design language with R-specific features set your Golf R apart.​


A Golf R through and through: the headlights that provide dynamic cornering light and the sporty bumpers give the vehicle a striking and powerful presence.


The design of the interior is an effortless continuation of the exterior – perfectly capturing the motorsports feel. Premium sport seats, attractive details made of leather and a striking R logo complete the sports look.


The Infotainment systems in the new Golf R meet high demands, with a touchscreen, fitted as standard, optional gesture control and much more.


You will love the dynamic look of the alloy wheels on your Golf R, both in motion and at a standstill, and they'll give your vehicle a truly sporty look.

Performance pack

The factory-fit Performance Pack comprises the ‘R-Performance’ brake system; a derestricted top speed and 19-inch ‘Spielberg’ alloy wheels. The hatchback version also receives a revised roof spoiler lip, too, boosting downforce by up to 20 kg. A two kilogram weight saving is a plus point of course, but it is the ‘built pin discs’ that provide a superior feel for the driver.

Titanium exhaust system from Akrapovič

Like almost all Akrapovič systems, the system available for the Golf R also uses titanium. This not only reduces the weight by 7kg, the Akrapovič system also gives the Golf R an incomparable sound. Featuring Round quad tailpipes rather than oval, the sound spectrum (depending on the driving profile) ranges from comfortable travel to motorsport sound. The acoustics typical of Akrapovič systems are created especially at high speeds and when shifting - concisely and finely tuned using a sophisticated valve control system.

Assistance systems

The intelligent driver assistance systems in your Golf Estate R ensures more driving comfort and can help you deal with critical situations very well or even avoid them. Even if you only notice this technology on rare occasions, it feels good to know that it is there.​

Front assist and ACC

With optional Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), you can be more relaxed on the road. The Front Assist area monitoring system includes City Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Monitoring.


Whether you need to make a call while driving, require current traffic information, want to reach your destination using the navigation system or simply want to listen to your own music – your Golf R offers various possibilities for using modern technology easily and in an uncomplicated way.


The two optional navigation systems offer a wealth of innovative functions and leave virtually nothing to be desired. They will make sure you stay on course and enjoy the best of entertainment.

Volkswagen fuel consumption and CO2 emissions

"Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions figures are obtained under standardised EU test conditions (or, in cases of vehicles with WLTP type approval, are the NEDC figures provided pursuant to Government guidance until further notice). These figures facilitate direct comparison between different models from different manufacturers, but may not represent the actual fuel consumption achieved in 'real world' driving conditions. More information is available at www.volkswagen.co.uk/owners/wltp

Choosing a larger alloy wheels than standard may result in increased fuel consumption, higher CO2 emissions and subsequently the Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) and BIK rates paid for company car drivers. In some instances, the 'On the Road' cost paid for the vehicle may increase as a result of the increased VED rate. The configurator tool highlights any changes to CO2, VED or Price when selecting optional alloy wheels."
