How Does the 2023 Volkswagen Golf R Perform?

Discover the Performance Specs of the 2023 Volkswagen Golf R  

The 2023 Volkswagen Golf R offers a little more performance than the basic model of the vehicle, smoothing the edges of your highest speed and providing it an advantage while passing on the highway. It also incorporates all-wheel drive capability and a drift mode to give it an advantage over rival sedans in drag races. There must be a way to explain the Drift mode to parents who aren’t familiar with drifting automobiles or even expert drifters, so it will almost surely turn off inexperienced drivers. For those skilled, though, this is a very entertaining feature in conjunction with precise steering to accelerate around curves. Explore what’s new in the 2023 Volkswagen Golf R in this blog post from Hall Volkswagen. Also, make your way to our dealership in Brookfield, Wisconsin, to begin your planning.

2022 Golf GTI cruising through a curve

The Volkswagen Golf Mk8 is Now Available in US and Canada

The Volkswagen Golf Mk8 Launch Video  

The MK8 GTI sticks to the tried-and-true combination of front-wheel drive and a 2.0T 4-cylinder engine, but with a new Garrett turbocharger. The Mk8 is built on the same MQB platform as the Mk7; therefore, there are no substantial differences in size or fundamental components. Instead, most aspects of the suspension and powertrains have been fine-tuned. The all-new scanning equipment creates a 3D image — in this case, of the GTI Mk8’s engine bay. This means that no trial-and-error fitting is required, unlike in the past. Hall Volkswagen in Brookfield, WI, is bringing to you the official video of The Volkswagen Golf Mk8.

2019 GTI vs 2019 R

Differences between the 2019 Golf GTI and 2019 Golf R?

2019 Golf GTI and 2019 Golf R Comparison

The Volkswagen Golf is an icon. It’s one of the most produced vehicles. Ever. The Golf GTI, when it was introduced back in 1975, single-handedly pioneered the concept of a hot hatch. Nowadays, its much more common to see performance-focused hatchbacks, but we’d like to take some time to appreciate the originals.

Today, we’re looking at the newest performance iterations of the iconic Volkswagen Golf, the limited-edition 2019 Volkswagen Golf GTI Rabbit and the 2019 Volkswagen Golf R. This isn’t a comparison to see which is objectively better, but more an evaluation of the strengths of each.

Here are the differences between the 2019 Golf GTI and the 2019 Golf R.
