2016 Volkswagen Golf R The Woodlands, TX




The turbocharged 292 hp engine powers a 4MOTION all-wheel-drive system.


In addition to the six-speed DSG automatic, a six-speed manual is now available.


Details like the 18-inch Cadiz wheels, R badging, blue ambient interior lighting and dual exhaust enhance the looks.


With seating for five and tons of cargo space, it’s still got all the practicality of a hatchback.


The MIB II infotainment system includes a USB port, 6.5-inch touchscreen and VW Car-Net App-Connect.

Driver assistance

Adaptive cruise control, collision warning, autonomous braking, lane assist, blind spot monitor and park pilot available.


The hottest of the hot hatches

With horsepower and torque figures right around 300 and 4MOTION all-wheel drive, this Golf has the ability to launch you from zero to 60 mph in under five seconds. It can do a lap of the Nurburgring in 8:15, but who’s counting. The bottom line is it’s the fastest car Volkswagen makes. This year you have the option of getting a traditional manual transmission if you’re a real performance purist. Otherwise the dual-clutch DSG automatic can keep the revs up in the fun zone for you.

Besides the impressive powertrain, what separates the R from the Golf GTI is tons of cool details. After the more aggressive front and rear fascias, the next thing you’ll probably notice is the 18-inch Cadiz wheels and R badging, including on the big brake calipers. There’s also dual exhaust and lowered suspension on the outside and cool blue interior ambient lighting on the inside. But for all its style and power, don’t forget it’s still a Golf. So you can seat five or fold down the seats to create a massive trunk space for whatever you need to carry.
