2018 VW Golf R: Performance Specs

2018 Volkswagen Golf R PerformanceThe 2018 Volkswagen Golf R runs on a 2.0L TSI® 4-cylinder engine, with 292 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque to its name. That's plenty to get this ride moving quickly, no matter where your daily drive takes you. Also, you'll have the option of choosing 4MOTION® all-wheel drive (AWD), helping you find traction on slippery roads.

This car also has DCC® adaptive chassis control to control the damper valves. With three sets of suspension firmness to choose from, it takes input signals from wheel sensors and front and rear acceleration sensors to find the optimal damping force. It applies this force individually to each wheel, resulting in a smoother ride for you.

Volkswagen Technology Features

Ready to hear your music coming through loud and clear? The available Fender® premium audio system can help you do it. With a 400-watt amp and eight speakers, you can enjoy concert-quality music from the driver's seat.

Plus, as part of the VW Car-Net® Guide and Inform feature, you can enjoy all kinds of assistance when you need it most. Enhanced navigation with traffic alerts can help you find the best route to your destination, and you can also get the sports and weather updates you need. This comes as part of the Sirius XM® Traffic and Travel Link® 3-month trial subscription.
