License to thrill

The R’s bold contours and sporty body kit mark it as the crowning achievement of the Golf range. The radiator grille, gloss black brake calipers and air intakes, alluring 19" Cadiz alloy wheels, dual chrome exhaust tailpipes and prominent R logos all combine to create a breathtaking look.

Alloy Wheels
Roll in style

The flagship Golf R sits nicely on 19-inch Cadiz alloy wheels and inherit a strong lineage of design and performance. They allow larger brake calipers to be fitted inside the wheel.

Inner peace

Special interior detailing underscore the car’s eye-catching exterior. The stainless steel front sill strips with blue illumination, brushed aluminium pedal caps, multi-function leather sports steering wheel, black Vienna Leather Appointed sports seats1, as well as a host of premium details create an unmatched sense of style that’s definitively the Golf R’s.

Panoramic Sunroof*
Fireworks all round

The optional electric panoramic glass sunroof bathes the interior in natural light, adds extra ventilation and creates a real sense of space and freedom. Tinted glass and built-in sun protection shelters you from harmful rays, while a wind deflector lets you enjoy the elements while gunning it down the highway.

(*Available as optional extra).

Get a bit tech heady.

Unbeatable performance doesn’t end under the bonnet. The technology we’ve pumped into the Golf R is all top of the line as well. From innovation that entertains to tech that makes driving a sheer pleasure, the R has it all.

App-Connect
The apps from your phone in your car

Access your smartphone’s screen, selected apps, maps, and music through App-Connect on your car’s touchscreen and Voice Control. You can do this thanks to three innovative technologies: Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™ and MirrorLink® interfaces.

Discover Media navigation system
Always head in the right direction

With two SD card slots for navigation and media, a 2D and 3D (bird's eye) map views, CD player with auxillary input and a 6.5" colour display with touch screen, getting where you want to go has never been easier.

Rear View Camera
See what’s behind you, in front of you

Whether reversing out of a busy parking lot or trying to squeeze into a tricky spot, an extra set of eyes are always handy. The Rear View Camera displays a live picture on your screen that shows what’s behind you, making reversing safer and easier.

Driving Profile Selection
Personalise your performance

How you drive your Golf R is up to you with a choice of selectable driving profiles: Normal, Race, Eco, Comfort and Individual. When you want to tear up the open road, Race mode will provide faster engine response and shift points, plus damping is increased, which reduces movements of the body structure.

BlueMotion Technology
Better for your engine and your wallet

BlueMotion Technology consists of a range of innovations and intelligent technologies designed to achieve greater fuel efficiency.

Stop/Start System
Pulls out all the stops on economy

A key BlueMotion Technology, this money-saving feature automatically stops the engine when you come to a standstill, and starts again on take-off, helping you cut back on fuel consumption.

4MOTION all-wheel drive
Gain some traction

Perfectly balanced for whatever conditions the road throws at you. The 4MOTION all-wheel drive coupling ensures optimal handling and steering response, excellent traction and dynamics, as well as improved fuel efficiency. The Golf R 4MOTION all-wheel drive offers improved fuel efficiency as well as the stability and safety you would expect.

Speed meets safety.

With the exceptional power the Golf R offers it would be remiss of us not to match it with safety features that are up for the job. The extra kilowatts are matched with a raft of safety and driver aids, which all come together to help you not only enjoy the ride but get home safe every time.

Driver Fatigue detection
A welcome wake up call

This potentially life-saving system continually evaluates signs of fatigue, such as steering movements and other independent signals. If fatigue is detected, it warns the driver with an audible alarm, and visually, on the console, recommends the driver take a break.

Electromechanical parking brake and Auto Hold
The handbrake has evolved

Replaces the conventional handbrake with a button. Plus, with Auto Hold, when your car comes to a stop, the ABS hydraulic unit holds the brakes, allowing you to comfortably take your foot off the pedal.

Proactive Occupant Protection System
Intuitively braces for impact

Before a collision, the front seat belts tense up to put you in the best spot for airbag protection, and if your car starts to slip, the side windows and the sunroof are also automatically closed.

Seven Airbags
The best possible protection

Comes with a standard seven airbags, including front, front side, front and rear curtain and driver’s knee. So if something does go wrong, you’ll be pleased you’re in a Golf R.

Multi-collision brake
Prevent follow-on collisions

When the airbag sensors detect a collision, this state-of-the-art system applies the brakes to slow down the vehicle so that a secondary impact will be lessened or avoided. During braking, the hazard and brake lights are illuminated and remain activated. The driver can take over at any time.

Extended Electronic Differential Lock (XDL)
Turn a corner on traction

An extension of the Electronic Differential Lock function, this clever addition helps achieve optimal handling in all conditions. Operating on both axles, it applies pressure to the wheel on the inside when cornering to help prevent wheel spin. As a result of this precise braking pressure, cornering is sportier and more accurate.

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
A smart way to cruise

An upgrade on the conventional cruise control system, Adaptive Cruise Control employs the use of a radar sensor which, once you select your speed range, monitors the road ahead for other vehicles and adapts your speed accordingly - allowing you to invariably maintain a safe distance when driving.

Front Assist with City Emergency Brake
It puts your foot down for you

Using a radar sensor, Front Assist detects when a vehicle in front of you gets too close; then warns the driver and prepares the car for emergency braking, giving you a better chance of avoiding a collision.

Blind Spot Monitor
Bye-bye blind spots

Using sensors, this genius feature informs you with illuminated symbols on each of your side mirrors when there’s a vehicle in your blind spot.

Pimp your ride

Personalise your Golf R with our range of Volkswagen genuine parts and accessories.
