With the exception of the Beetle and, maybe, the VW Bus, there could be little argument after claiming that the Volkswagen Golf might be one of the most recognizable and iconic models on the brand. It was first introduced in 1974 and has gone through plenty of generational shifts, overhauls and different model configurations. Today, we offer several different types of Golf models, and the 2019 Volkswagen Golf R in Green Bay WI
is just one of them.
The Golf R joined the lineup in 2009 at the start of the model’s sixth generation. When the VW Golf was redesigned for its seventh generation, the Golf R underwent the same changes and came out the other side a great hot hatch option in the legendary hatchback family of vehicles.
When talking about the performance-focused version of the iconic Golf lineup, we figured that’d probably be a good place to start – performance. Powered by a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, the Golf R is capable of generating 288 horsepower alongside 280 pound-feet of torque. That kind of power enables the VW Golf R to get from a complete stop all the way up to 60 miles per hour in less than 5 seconds.
Performance is further enhanced by things like the 4MOTION all-wheel drive system and 7-speed DSG automatic transmission with Tiptronic and Sport mode. But performance isn’t the only aspect of the VW Golf R. It’s packed full of technologies and other great features that make the cabin more convenient and comfortable, or the whole driving experience safer.
This includes things like the Volkswagen Digital Cockpit, the available Fender Premium audio system, the 8” display audio navigation system and the Rear View Camera System.
