2015 Volkswagen Golf R Overview

Zac Estrada
Automotive Editor - March 26, 2015

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:

Base

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.
