True performance needs no audience
2022 Volkswagen Golf R Design
The Golf R sports an aggressive front bumper featuring large air intakes with a newly designed radiator grille and signature blue R accents connecting updated LED headlights. Matte chrome mirror caps, a signature R design element, also make their return.
The all-new Golf R's aerodynamic profile has been designed to improve agility, steering response, and stability at high speeds by reducing both front and especially rear uplift through the downforce created by the new two-piece rear spoiler.
2022 Volkswagen Golf R Performance
The new Golf R is propelled by the latest “evo4” generation of Volkswagen’s proven EA888 2.0L turbocharged “TSI” 4-cylinder engine producing 315 horsepower and up to 295 lb-ft of torque in models equipped with the 7-speed DSG gearbox (280 lb-ft in manual models).
Sending power to all four wheels through the 4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive system, Golf R sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.7 seconds (DSG models).*
The new R torque vectoring rear differential is the key enabler of the new, track-only “Drift” mode. In Drift mode, the Golf R changes its stability control parameters to ESC Sport, and the torque vectoring system kicks off the drift by sending all available rear torque to the outside wheel.
2022 Volkswagen Golf R Technology
The Digital Cockpit Pro allows you to customize the look and feel of your Golf R more intuitively and in greater detail. Not only do you get the benefits of the traditional Volkswagen Digital Cockpit, but you can display a full-screen map in the digital cluster and simultaneously on the 10” centre display. The unique R display mode changes the layout of the instruments and puts a horizontal rev counter at the top of the clutster where it’s always easy to see.
2022 Volkswagen Golf R Safety
