Like the best part of an action movie, let’s cut to the chase - the Golf R really knows how to handle the road. We designed it to deliver exceptional precision and control. Plus, there’s even a variety of driving modes to choose from. So now you’re ready to hit the track. Or whatever kind of road is your scene.

Curve your enthusiasm

The curvier the road, the better. At least we think so. The R-performance 4MOTION all-wheel-drive in the Golf R is engineered with a torque vectoring system that makes powering through curves a breeze.

That’s right. You get to be in control when driving the Golf R. The digital driving tools give you the freedom to tailor the performance to your liking. So, when you’re heading down your favorite winding road, you can easily drop it into your favorite custom setting. That kind of makes you a twist whisperer. Or something like that.

Design

They say it’s rude to stare. We think it’s rude not to.

Let’s take a moment to admire the design of the Golf R. Ok, maybe more than a moment. The unique front bumper, paired with side skirts and a rear diffuser, really screams sporty sophistication. Don’t you think? It also maximizes aerodynamics. And we can’t ignore the interior, which carries on the athletic look, and is full of high-quality materials. Quite fitting for this high-performance hatch.

It’s kind of a beauty meets beast scenario

Safety

We can’t predict. But we can engineer

2024 VW Golf R: Performance and Design | Volkswagen (70)

Safety is a core value to us. And while we can’t predict everything you might encounter, we can and do spend long hours trying to help you prepare for it.

Stay focused.

Benefit from the view of a wide lens when you want it. It can help you see obstacles when backing up, a feature so helpful you’ll wonder how you ever managed without it.

We’re rigid about safety.

Front and rear crumple zones help absorb crash energy, while a rigid safety cage helps distribute forces away from the driver and passengers.

Intelligent by design.

In the event of a collision that deploys the airbags, the ICRS can turn off the fuel pump, unlock the doors, and activate the hazard lights. It helps react if you might not be able to.

We think ahead.

Not every collision brings a car to stop. That’s why our vehicles include the Automatic Post-Collision Braking System. It can also help slow the vehicle down after a collision, helping reduce the chance of any additional impacts.

Safety. Engineered from the ground up.
