From only $42,065
In the 2018 Golf R, extraordinary performance is augmented by a full complement of innovative technologies designed to propel every drive to the next level. From premium audio, to first-class multimedia and navigation – even exceptional engine efficiency. Circuit-board smart. Racing-circuit inspired.
The 2.0 TSI® engine pumps out the kind of power previously unimaginable from such a small displacement. We’ve upsized the turbocharger, and bolstered the cylinder heads, exhaust valves, and pistons. Bottom line? Top-tier performance – from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 5 seconds.
Impeccable fit and finish. Unquestionably assertive, with sporty styling engineered into every detail. Where over-the-top performance meets understated elegance. After all, true drivers know – when you got it, don’t flaunt it. Floor it.
Built for performance means engineered with safety systems that respond just as swiftly. So whether you’re cruising on the open road, or manoeuvring in and out of tight spaces, you can count on a multitude of sophisticated safeguards for added reassurance.
The Golf R never lags behind – even when you’re backing up. Available Park Distance Control automatically engages in reverse gear, using ultrasonic sensors that alert you to obstacles up to 1.6 metres away with audible signals.
Just like it sounds, this cruise-control feature adapts to maintain a comfortable cruising speed and distance. Braking automatically kicks in when traffic slows, and cruising speed resumes when things pick up – all with your feet off the pedals.
When you’re focused on the road ahead, it’s easy to miss what’s beside or behind. Radar and sonar trigger driver alerts and employ braking to help address potentially tricky driving situations – invaluable assistance when changing lanes or parking.
Innovation meets good road manners, automatically activating your headlights when darkness falls, and dipping them to help minimize harsh glare when sensors detect oncoming vehicles above 60 km/h.
