A performance oriented version of the Volkswagen Golf, the 2012 Golf R is a hatchback available in three door and five door trim levels. The Golf R is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that produces 256 hp and 243 lb-ft of torque, for a 0-60 time of 5.6 seconds. A 6-speed manual is paired with AWD to enable the Golf R to achieve an EPA estimated 19 mpg city and 27 mpg highway. Features include 18-inch alloy wheels, sport seats with leather trim, R body kit and badging, dual-zone automatic climate control, premium audio system, push button start, and touchscreen navigation. Safety is comprised of advanced airbags, electronic stability control, anti-slip regulation, electronic brake-pressure distribution, electronic differential lock, engine braking assist, and hydraulic brake assist. The Golf R is backed by a 3-year/36,000-mile warranty.
Volkswagen is known for its approach to performance value, and the Golf R is no exception. It is the most expensive version of the Golf, with an engine and drivetrain taken directly from the Audi TTS, but the base price comes in $10,000 less. The Golf R's understated styling and a well-engineered interior are classic Volkswagen. The Golf also comes in both 3- and 5-door variations for greater flexibility.
The Volkswagen Golf R is new for 2012. A couple of years after the notorious R32 high-performance Golf was last seen, Volkswagen brought back the high-performance all-wheel drive hatch, redubbing it the 'Golf R.'
The Golf's always had its performance-oriented big brother, the GTI, around, and occasionally, the all-wheel drive V6-powered Golf R32 has appeared in the US. For 2012, Volkswagen brought their newest high-performance Golf, called simply the 'Golf R.' It comes with a direct-injected turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder and all-wheel drive system borrowed from the Audi TTS. The engine is tuned for 256 horsepower and 243 lb-feet of torque for the Golf, and a 6-speed manual transmission is the only gearbox option.
