Golf R

Track star.

Highlights

2.0 TSI turbocharged engine

The 2.0 TSI engine pumps out 288 HP – power previously unimaginable from such a small engine. An optional seven-speed dual clutch moves swiftly and seamlessly between gears with zero loss of torque. We’ve upsized the turbocharger and bolstered the cylinder heads, exhaust valves and pistons. Bottom line? Top-tier performance – from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 5 seconds.†

†Please drive safely and obey all traffic laws, including speed limits.

4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive

The Golf R was born on the track. So maintaining a firm grip comes with the territory – especially on Canadian roads. If 4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive detects slippage, more torque is directed to the wheels with the most grip to help deliver more traction for improved handling and control.†

†Appropriate all-season or winter-weather tires are required for driving in cold, snowy or icy weather conditions.

Driving mode selection with Dynamic Chassis Control

This advanced system allows you to adjust suspension and steering stiffness according to road conditions and driving style. So you get the optimal ride with your choice of preset driving modes, or mix and match to create your own.

Adaptive LED headlights

While you’re busy turning heads in your Golf R, these ingenious adaptive headlights are turning corners – even before you do. As brightly coloured as sunlight, and more efficient than standard headlights, they scan 13 degrees left or right so you see more of what’s ahead.

Fuel consumption ratings are estimates based on Natural Resources Canada’s (NRCan) fuel consumption criteria and testing methods for 2018 model year vehicles and are provided for comparison purposes only. Please note that comparisons to seemingly similar vehicles pre-2015 model year will show discrepancies due to the difference in NRCan approved calculation methods for 2014 model year and older vehicles. Please refer to NRCan’s Fuel Consumption Guide 2018 for estimated fuel consumption figures. Actual fuel consumption will vary based on driving conditions, driver habits and the vehicle’s condition, weight carried and additional equipment. Tires are supplied and warranted by their manufacturer. Most vehicles are sold equipped with four all-season tires. For vehicles sold equipped with summer performance tires, note that appropriate all-season or winter weather tires are required for driving during cold, snowy or icy weather conditions. Please remember that the use of winter tires may be mandatory in your province or territory. Airbags are supplemental restraints only and will not deploy under all accident scenarios. Always use safety belts and seat children only in the rear seats, using restraint systems appropriate for their size and age.

Discrepancies may occur between the mapping and the actual location due to changes in street names, construction or other road system changes which are beyond the control of Volkswagen Canada.
