The Golf R. The fastest Golf ever made.
Meet the top-of-the-line Golf R. It is the most powerful and fastest series production Golf ever made. With its turbocharged 2.0-litre TSI engine developing 290 PS, it accelerates from a standstill to 100 km/h in only 4.6 seconds, while the standard all-wheel drive system provides surefooted traction no matter what the weather or road conditions. The Golf R may be quick enough to shame some supercars, but it retains all the things you love about the Golf, such as a spacious interior and everyday versatility.
The motorsport-tuned engine of the Golf R may be the most powerful one ever put into any Golf, but despite its high output, clever features such as dual fuel injection and variable camshaft adjustment translate to amazing efficiency. As a result, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are both extremely low for a performance car.
Four to the floor.
A few minutes behind the wheel of the Golf R will be enough to convince you that it is a true blue performance car. Its 4MOTION all-wheel drive system is the most advanced of its kind yet - multiple sensors monitor how much traction is available at each wheel, and the system constantly adjusts the power flow accordingly. It can even pre-empt critical driving situations and direct power to the appropriate wheel to prevent any potential loss of grip. Also unique to the Golf R is the ability to completely deactivate the Electronic Stabilisation Programme (ESP), which experienced drivers may want to do on a race track.
