2016 Volkswagen Golf R Brookfield, WI
The R combines raw power and sophisticated handling for the ultimate Golf experience.
18-inch alloy wheels, quad exhaust tips and R badging are on the outside, blue ambient lighting and more are on the inside.
4MOTION all-wheel drive, progressive steering and a trick differential can be combined with 3-mode dynamic chassis control.
The new MIB II infotainment system has a big touchscreen with gesture controls and a USB port to plug in your smartphone.
It still has the Golf’s folding rear seats and adjustable cargo floor, so there’s no compromise on cargo space.
Adaptive cruise control, collision warning, autonomous braking, blind spot monitor, rear traffic alert, lane assist and park pilot are available.
The ultimate expression of the hot hatch
With 292 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque, the Golf R can propel itself from zero to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds and set a blistering time of 8:15 around the Nurburgring. Volkswagen’s engineers have wrung every bit of performance they can out of the 2.0-liter turbocharged in-line four. Then the designers went crazy on the styling, adding 18-inch Cadiz alloy wheels, quad chrome exhaust tips, R badging inside and out, blue interior ambient lighting and more details. The result is stunning.
Under the hood there is heaps of driving technology putting the power to the pavement. It’s got 4MOTION all-wheel drive, progressive variable-ratio steering, the XDS+ electronic differential with four locks and available dynamic chassis control with three modes. There’s exciting new technology at your fingertips as well. A big addition this year is the MIB II infotainment system, which has a USB port to plug in your smartphone and a 6.5-inch touchscreen with gesture controls to use your apps.View Inventory

It’s got the same 60/40 folding rear seats and adjustable cargo floor as the original Golf, so there’s plenty of space for people and things. And new driver assistance features can bring a new level of safety and confidence to your drive. Adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, autonomous emergency braking, blind spot monitor, rear traffic alert, lane departure warning and park distance control are available.
