The 2019 Volkswagen Golf R: A Personalized High Tech Drive


With 45 exterior colors to choose from, from Ice Blue to Magma Orange, variety and personalization are key to the Golf R’s design. This hatchback, with sport bumpers, LED headlights and LED Daytime Running Lights, has a striking presence on the road.

The LED headlights come with Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS), which turns with your steering wheel so that every inch of the road you need to see is lit up.

The interior is made elegant with top sport, race-inspired front seats, with clean lines and large bucket seats. The seats also have an R logo imprinted on them. Additionally, there are carbon touch accents throughout the Golf R, on the trim along its doors.


The Golf R boasts a 288-horsepower 2.0L TSI® engine with a 4MOTION® all-wheel-drive system that manages torque distribution between the front and rear wheels. This system measures when torque is needed at the rear for extra stability. The 7-speed DSG® automatic transmission guarantees accelerated and smooth transitions with the Volkswagen Golf R. DCC® adaptive chassis control works to channel suspension at the individual wheels of the vehicle as necessary, using sensors to do so.

The Golf R additionally comes with distinct driving modes to choose from, to fit the kind of ride you want for the road ahead.


Volkswagen’s digital cockpit equips you with all the information you need while driving, all in a convenient spot, right behind the steering wheel. An 8” touchscreen and navigation system also easily brings information to the driver’s eyes and ears.

App-Connect allows you to connect your smartphone to either Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™. This makes for easy connection to your music, which you can hear at the highest quality with the Golf R’s 400 watt-amp and 8-speaker Fender® Premium Audio System.

The VW Car-Net® Security and Service System ensures your Volkswagen Golf R is the vehicle that keeps you safe and informed. You can check the  VW Car-Net® mobile app for any concerns you have. For example, if you wonder if you left your doors unlocked or the sunroof open, the app can send you notifications with such information, and you can lock your doors or close the Golf R’s sunroof directly from the mobile app. VW Car-Net® Security & Service can even call for assistance if necessary.
