Feel the power of the Golf R
They say a lot of things about the Golf R. That it's potent at the throttle, with plenty of traction, grip and torque. That it's class-leading in space, interior, and all-round driver appeal. And that it's the ultimate high-performance machine both on the streets and on the track. But those are all things better experienced than explained. Drive it for yourself.

The Golf R's celebrated 2.0L turbocharged TSI power plant pumps out 213kW of power and delivers 380Nm of torque from only 1850rpm. You'll want to strap in for this one.
The Golf R offers dynamic and elegant styling, outside and in. The sporty exterior gives the Golf R a striking presence, which is seamlessly replicated with the perfectly tailored interior.
