Golf R

Experience the power within.


Special interior features underscore the car’s premier positioning beginning with the R leather multi-function sports steering wheel and sports seats in ‘Race’ black Vienna appointed leather upholstery* with R logo.

6-speed Direct Shift Gearbox

The 6-speed Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) transmission allows for rapid, seamless gear shifting and comes as optional on the Golf R. A responsive 6-speed Manual transmission comes as standard.

Alloy wheels

The flagship Golf R sits nicely on 19-inch Cadiz alloy wheels.


The Golf R's unique bumper design is eye-catching, and is embellished by 19-inch Cadiz wheels. The front spoiler wears a chrome strip and the radiator grille and the louvres of the large air intakes are presented in gloss black. A chrome strip also runs along the lower edge of the grille and through the Bi-Xenon headlights with their distinctive LED daytime driving lights. On the right side of the grille sits the R logo in chrome. In profile, the Golf R is identified by its side skirt extensions in body colour and matte chrome mirror housings. At the rear, dark tinted LED tail lights feature a clear strip through the lower half while a simple R badge graces the tailgate. The eye is further drawn to two pairs of chrome tail pipes that double as a visual and acoustic highlight, flanking a rear diffuser with gloss black detail.

2.0-Litre Turbocharged TSI Engine

The Golf R continues in this dynamic tradition with its 2.0-litre TSI engine delivering an impressive 206kW of power and 380Nm of torque.

The 4MOTION all-wheel drive system has been further enhanced in the Golf R. When operating under a relatively low load or when coasting, power is primarily distributed to the front axle, and this basic drive layout saves fuel.
