Traditionally, the Golf R has always been the most powerful model of the model series. Always engineered with all-wheel drive (4MOTION). It all began 15 years ago with the original model of this series: The Golf R32.
The Golf Mk 4 presented in 2002 with 177 kW/241 PS was, the first Volkswagen in the world to be offered with a dual clutch gearbox (DSG) as an option. Three generations later, the power output of the sports car now known as the Golf R had grown to 300 PS. In 2017, the current design and technology update of the Golf R boosts this power output to 228 kW/310 PS (between 5,500 and 6,500 rpm); never before has a production Golf been more powerful; never before could a production Golf accelerate faster.
