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.

Engine and Performance Specs in the 2023 Volkswagen Golf R  

An inline four-cylinder turbocharged 2.0-liter engine with 315 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque powers the Golf R. One of two transmissions—a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic is paired with the engine. The standard 4Motion all-wheel-drive system has a rear differential that can actively split torque between the left and right rear wheels for better handling. By pushing the “R” button on the steering wheel, you can choose between the selectable drive modes for the Golf R (Comfort, Sport, Race, Special, Drift, and Individual). A performance exhaust system, variable-ratio steering, and larger front disc brakes than before are standard on every model. Additionally, it has a pair of 19-inch wheels fitted with summer performance tires.
