    Expert Rating

    4.9 (Excellent)
    23 City / 30 Highway

    Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

    You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

    5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

    4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

    3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

    2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

    1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

    2015 Volkswagen Golf R OVERVIEW

    The Volkswagen Golf R is for the hot hatch fan who believes the iconic Golf GTI just isn't hot enough. Using the excellent Golf as a base, the R adds all-wheel drive and a highly boosted turbo four to become one of the ultimate fast small cars on the market today, while retaining all of the practicality you'd expect from VW's compact hatchback.

    If you feel comfortable paying almost $40,000 for a car with modest roots, it's a premium-feeling machine that can tackle corners just as easily as your everyday commute.

    What's New for 2015

    Volkswagen gave the all-new Golf R a late introduction this year. All models have an automated DSG dual-clutch transmission, and prices start from $36,595. A six-speed manual and some other revisions are expected on 2016 cars, due late this year.

    Choosing Your Volkswagen Golf R

    All 2015 Golf Rs come with a 2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder producing 292 horsepower. A six-speed dual-clutch transmission sends power to all four wheels. A five-door hatch is the only bodystyle available, but you can choose between a pair of trim levels:


    The Golf R is loaded with standard equipment, and comes with 18-inch wheels, a body kit, bi-xenon headlamps, LED running lights, a drive-mode selector, a 5.8-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, satellite radio, backup camera, leather sport seats, 12-way power driver's seat, heated front seats, keyless entry and start, and a dual-zone automatic climate control system.

    DCC w/ Nav

    The main options for the Golf R come in the form of a package-based trim level: the Golf R with DCC and Nav. This adds the adaptive damping system for the suspension, 19-inch wheels, navigation for the 5.8-inch touchscreen radio, Fender premium audio and front and rear parking sensors.

    CarsDirect Tip

    DCC and Nav aren't really worth it on this car, partly because the standard setup is good and the navigation option is nothing special. And if you load up a Golf R, you're pushing right up to the starting price of the mechanically similar Audi S3.
