2.0 TSI turbocharged engine
The 2.0 TSI engine pumps out 288 HP – power previously unimaginable from such a small engine. An optional seven-speed dual clutch moves swiftly and seamlessly between gears with zero loss of torque. We’ve upsized the turbocharger and bolstered the cylinder heads, exhaust valves and pistons. Bottom line? Top-tier performance – from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 5 seconds.
4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive
The Golf R was born on the track. So maintaining a firm grip comes with the territory – especially on Canadian roads. If 4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive detects slippage, more torque is directed to the wheels with the most grip to help deliver more traction for improved handling and control.
Driving mode selection with Dynamic Chassis Control
This advanced system allows you to adjust suspension and steering stiffness according to road conditions and driving style. So you get the optimal ride with your choice of preset driving modes, or mix and match to create your own.
Adaptive LED headlights
While you’re busy turning heads in your Golf R, these ingenious adaptive headlights are turning corners – even before you do. As brightly coloured as sunlight, and more efficient than standard headlights, they scan 13 degrees left or right so you see more of what’s ahead.
Squeeze even more driving pleasure out of each hairpin turn with exclusive “R”-emblazoned leather sport seats. Bold, race-inspired and bucket-style, these luxurious seats enhance the joyful feeling of accelerating into every curve.
Automatic Post-Collision Braking System
Help stop accidents in their tracks. The moment an accident is detected, the system automatically tightens seat belts and triggers emergency braking to help prevent further accidents.
App-Connect integrations the smartphone apps that you need most on the road into your Volkswagen using Apple CarPlay for iPhones, or Android Auto for Android smartphones. That means you control your apps with your voice or right from the infotainment screen.
Standard Rearview Camera
We've got your back. The rearview camera makes backing out of the driveway or into a parking space much easier.
Available Blind Spot Detection
Get the heads-up when you're backing up. This feature is designed to notify you of vehicles approaching while you're backing up and can apply automatic braking under certain conditions.
Available Park Distance Control
The Golf R never lags behind - even when you are backing up. Park Distance Control is designed to automatically engage in reverse gear, using ultrasonic sensors to help alert you to obstacles up to 1.6 metres away with audible signals.
Available Adaptive Cruise Control
Cruise Control is great for keeping the same speed. This system goes further, maintaining a preset distance. Without you touching the pedals, the system is designed to automatically brake when traffic slows and resumes your set speed when traffic flows.
