• It features new LED headlights unique to the Golf family, with the Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS)
and LED daytime running lights, along with LED taillights.
• Other new standard features include an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment display and Volkswagen
Digital Cockpit, a fully customizable instrument cluster.
• The Golf R with DCC and Navigation adds a fresh design for its 19-inch wheels, and standard Front
Assist is enhanced with a Pedestrian Monitoring feature, which builds on an impressive suite of driver
assistance tech.
• Buyers can choose a new seven-speed DSG® automatic transmission with Tiptronic® and a Start-Stop
• For the 2018 model year, Volkswagen Golf R models in the United States will come with the People

Limited Warranty, which can be transferred to subsequent owners throughout its duration.

292 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque can take you from 0 to 60 in under 5 seconds.

The 4MOTION all-wheel-drive system transfers torque between the front and rear wheels. In normal driving conditions, power is delivered to the front wheels. But 4MOTION can also send torque to the rear axle when it’s needed.

7-speed DSG® automatic transmission with Tiptronic® and Sport mode
Faster shifting than a manual transmission, the available 7-speed DSG automatic transmission lets you quickly upshift and downshift using paddle shifters located within a finger’s reach on the steering wheel.

DCC® adaptive chassis control With three settings of suspension firmness to choose from, DCC adaptively controls the damper valves of the Golf R with a refined control algorithm. Taking input signals from wheel sensors and front and rear acceleration sensors, DCC adjusts the optimal damping force, selectively applying force to the four wheels individually.

LED Headlights with Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS)
These headlights create bright beams of light to help improve visibility, lasting longer and using less energy than halogen bulbs. The Adaptive Front-lighting System allows the headlights to turn slightly with the direction of your steering at certain speeds. Lighting takes a brilliant turn.

Volkswagen Digital CockpitThis display is a true breakthrough. Instead of the traditional instrument cluster, information can be displayed digitally in high resolution.

Fender® Premium Audio System
Transform your Golf R into a concert hall on wheels with the available Fender Premium Audio System that has a 400-watt amp and eight speakers, plus a subwoofer.

Pedestrian Monitoring
The available Forward Collision Warning (included in Front Assist) system can help monitor traffic and can alert you acoustically and visually to a potential front-end collision with the vehicle moving ahead. If it senses that a collision is imminent, Autonomous Emergency Braking (included in Front Assist) can support the driver with increased brake pressure or, under certain circumstances, it can apply the brakes automatically. The available Pedestrian Monitoring (included in Front Assist) feature can warn of pedestrians crossing in front of the vehicle and, under certain circumstances can, brake automatically to help prevent or mitigate the outcome of a collision with a pedestrian if the driver doesn’t respond adequately to the warnings.

      I was at my VW dealer yesterday, considering a few costly repairs. (My Eos has 100K miles on it now.) A blue GTI caught my eye, but ... could I live with all this piano black plastic? I don’t know. The seats look nice, but the shiny black plastic clashes with the black rubbery dash.

      Aww man I'm only 50 seconds in and already technical errors. VW dynamic chassis control shocks are not magnetic.. it adjusts the shock pistons to control fluid flow rate, instead of magnetically thickening the fluid like GM does.

      Actually, the R is embossed on the back of the seat, not embellished, as you said.
      Also, call me crazy, but I always put gloves in my glove box.

      Embossed seats is a form of embellishment.

      Great car but that horn sounds feeble! It was the same on the one I took for a drive, sounded like it had been taken from a Morris Minor or Austin 7!

      Am I the only one who thinks the R looks better than the gti? I like how it has the black mirrors, better looking front bumper, quad exhaust, and plus I don’t like the wheels on the gti

      Don't know why anyone would buy VW over the more reliable Jap cars. 4:50 look at that shitty paint job, can easily see the orange peeling from miles away. Sad.

      Had a 2015 MK7 that just went back last month. Amazing car in every way. Seriously contemplated a Golf R, but ended up with a loaded out A3. Now the Golf R is faster but I felt like I was getting another GTI an noting special. Plus contrary to what others say this looks like a kid car.

      Golf Gti is the car of my dreams, but I live in a "fifth" country. Here politicians are the biggest thieves. the taxes are high, I saved money for 5 years to be able to buy a golf tournament in 2016. A golf in brazil costs the equivalent of two mustangs in the usa. Our currency is not worth anything, but I am in the fight. hug .

      I think I'd be happier with a 18" wheel and a bit more tire height. Would the handling suffer? Maybe but it's a trade off I'd take for a better ride overall. Running around on rubber bands instead of proper tire size is not that "cool" looking to me, but that's just me...
