About the Golf R

The Golf R embodies a passion for motorsport. From its breathtaking strength to its long-lasting impression, it has all the hallmark features of the Volkswagen R performance model.

Features & Design

Its extraordinary performance is obvious from the outset. The power from the latest generation of legendary TSI engines is perfectly transferred to the road by the new 4MOTION all-wheel drive system with R-Performance Torque Vectoring.

Innovation all around

The new Golf R is equipped with premium levels of technology that you would expect from Volkswagen – all of which only add to the pure driving pleasure of the driver and passengers.

Active Info Display

The Golf R features a 10.25" Active Info Display 'Pro' for the drivers instrument cluster. So all your performance details are right in front of you.

Built-in look over the shoulder

The Side Assist system (Blind Spot Monitor) warns you about vehicles in your blind spot using an LED indicator on the exterior mirror. And if you still attempt to change lanes despite the warning, it starts to flash to attract more attention. The integrated Rear Traffic Alert warns you if any vehicles approach when you are reversing from a parking space. If you fail to respond to the warning, the system can prevent a collision by applying the brakes.

Innovation Cockpit

The Golf R’s Innovation Cockpit lets you call the shots by putting an exciting array of performance functions within easy reach. The Innovation Cockpit is an immersive, fully digital driver display landscape consisting the Discover Media System, equipped with aspects such as a 10” high-resolution full-colour touchscreen

Front assist with pedestrian & cyclist monitoring

Using a radar sensor, the Front Assist (Autonomous Emergency Brake & Pedestrian Monitoring) detects a potential collision ahead by warning the driving and applying the brake to help 'prevent' a potential collision.

Master of its class

Ever had the feeling of being one with your vehicle – where the driver and car fit together like a glove? Experience perfect driving harmony with R sports bucket seats, sports steering wheel and innovative driver aids that work together to put you in complete control.

Stay relaxed in busy streets with advanced safety features.

The intelligent driver assistance systems in your Golf R ensure 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.

*Safety technologies are not a substitute for the driver’s responsibility of the vehicle.

The available Forward Collision Warning system (included in Front Assist) has sensors in the front to help monitor traffic and can alert you to a potential collision. If a collision is imminent, Autonomous Emergency Braking (included in Front Assist) can help brake the car.

Side Assist provides assistance if you want to change lanes from speeds of 10 km\h upwards. Sensors in the rear of the vehicle monitor the traffic and should they detect any road users in your blind spot or vehicles approaching quickly from behind, the system will alert you via a warning light within the door mirror housing.

The available Rear Traffic Alert comes in handy when you’re backing up. It has sensors that can alert you to vehicles crossing in your path when in reverse and even brake for you if needed.

When moving, the available Lane Departure Warning (Lane Assist) can sense if you start to drift into another lane without using the turn signal. On most models, Lane Assist will help steer to help keep you in the correct lane.

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) helps maintain a preset distance from the car in front of you. If the car in front of you speeds up or slows down, the sensors detect the change and your car follows suit.

The available Park Distance Control (Park Pilot) has sensors that can help you back out of or drive into a parking spot. Audible signals and the optical parking system on the display indicate how much space you have behind and, on some vehicles, in front of the vehicle when parking. If you get too close, an alert sounds as a warning.
