The Golf R has a sharp design and colour range, for extra head-turning ability. Sleek designs across the front bumper, lower air intake and guard panels, plus the bumper and diffuser at the rear. Premium LED lights are featured front and back with dynamic indicators on the rear.

It’s all in the details.

Paying attention to the little details can make a big impact. Which is why the Golf R is styled with gloss black door mirrors, a subtle tailgate badge, heated front seats and Vienna leather appointed upholstery.

Quick off the mark. Quicker to stop.

The Special Edition Golf R is fitted with a performance brake system that really comes to life under sporty driving conditions. Weighing in at 2kg less, this lightweight system increases high performance stability and improves responsiveness.


Adorned in Vienna leather appointed upholstery , the Golf R’s interior offers style and comfort with a modern twist. A fully-digital Active Info Display graces the driver’s console, next to a new-generation 9.2” infotainment system with App-Connect . And with the addition of a heated, electrically adjustable driver’s seat with memory function, life in the driver’s seat has never been sweeter.

Alloy Wheels

Accentuating the Golf R’s power and clean lines are the 19” Spielberg alloy wheels. Their larger diameter surrounds large ventilated brake discs front and rear.

A style statement

Killer looks meets high performance. The Golf R’s gloss black 19” Pretoria alloy wheels work seamlessly with the R Performance brake system to reduce unsprung weight, enhancing responsiveness and handling.


Manoeuvre Braking

Built to assist parking, even in the tightest of spaces. Manoeuvre Braking, front and rear, is designed to avoid or reduce the likelihood of a collision by automatically braking if an obstacle is detected by the parking sensors.

Driver Fatigue detection

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 conventional handbrake has been replaced 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

Before a collision occurs, 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

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

Multi-collision brake

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)

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)

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

Front Assist with City Emergency Brake

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

Blind Spot Monitor

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.


Active Info Display

Say hello to digital with the Active Info Display. This feature replaces the traditional instruments that sit behind the steering wheel with a 12.3” high-definition digital screen. This puts everything you need, right in front of you with configurable views for navigation, infotainment, driver assistance and vehicle performance functions.

Discover Pro Navigation System

The Golf R’s infotainment system features a massive 9.2” display with gesture control, voice control and App-Connect plus media control, built-in navigation displaying 2D and 3D (bird's eye) maps and 10GB of onboard storage.

Rear View Camera

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


Show your smartphone’s screen on your car display, with access to selected apps, maps and music via Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™ and MirrorLink® interfaces.


213kW 2.0L TSI

The Golf R’s celebrated 2.0L turbocharged power plant pumps out 213kW of power at 5400 rpm, delivery a peak of torque of 380Nm from only 1850rpm.

Driving Profile Selection

The Golf R’s track pedigree means it demands to be driven. And no matter what your style, there’s a mode for you – 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

BlueMotion Technology lowers fuel consumption. It includes the Start/Stop system, brake energy recuperation and gear shift recommendation. That means it better for your engine and your wallet.

4MOTION all-wheel drive

The 4MOTION all-wheel drive coupling ensures excellent traction, optimal handling and steering response and dynamics.
