For the first time since the existence of the model range, the Golf R, the icon of all-wheel compact sports cars, is being launched as a station wagon. The exclusive model has 221 kW / 300 PS. The turbo engine of the Volkswagen Golf R Variant provides up to 380 Nm torque via a standard 6-speed dual-clutch gearbox (DSG) to the permanent 4MOTION all-wheel drive. Distribution of the drive power over all four wheels guarantees maximum traction, performance and active safety. Providing for pure dynamic performance are a sport suspension (lowered 20 mm), the innovative progressive steering system and "ESC Sport" - which can be deactivated for use on a race course. Optional highlights include the newest generation of the DCC adaptive chassis control system with driving profile selector that features a Race mode.
The Volkswagen Golf R Variant accelerates from a standstill to 80 km/h (50 mph) in only 3.8 seconds and to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.1 seconds. The sports car station wagon is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph). Fuel consumption and emission values show just how efficiently the turbocharged four-cylinder engine of the Golf R Variant works: in the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC), the sportiest Golf Variant of all times only consumes 7.0 l/100 km; this value equates to CO2 emissions of 163 g/km.
