* The versatile and innovative redesigned 2015 Volkswagen Golf R is a modern hatchback ready to excite the senses. From its upscale interior to its German design and engineering, the Golf R surrounds you with quality and amenities not typically expected in a hatchback. With a standard 292hp turbocharged 2.0L engine that delivers 280 lb-ft of torque with 4MOTION all-wheel drive, you can make a 0-60 sprint in 4.9 seconds. Inside, wrap your hands around the leather-wrapped, 3-spoke R sport steering wheel with paddle shifters. A 5.8 inch touch-screen Infotainment system with proximity sensor allows you to operate the sound system. Available satellite navigation allows you to know where you are at and how to get where you want to be. The Fender Premium Audio System with 8 speakers plus subwoofer is also available to enhance the soundtrack to the trip. An available panorama tilt and slide sunroof is big enough to allow every passenger a view of the sky. Available lighting features include Bi-Xenon headlights with Adaptive Front-light System turn up to 13 degrees around corners before you can ensure you that nighttime driving will be a breeze. The highbeams are also able to automatically dim for oncoming traffic so you have less to worry about when driving the night roads. When you have a lot to carry the Variable Cargo Load Floor allows you to increase the size of cabin by lowering the trunk floor by 3.5 inches. Laser seam welding gives the Golf a solid feel while a host of advanced safety features help ensure the Golf provides safety to all its occupants. Safety features include adaptive airbags, Intelligent Crash Response System, Automatic post-collision braking. Source: The Manufacturer Summary

  • Awesome car... would buy again

    Car drives like it's on rails around corners...sticks to the road in any driving condition. Exceptional acceleration for a non-sports car. Has all the amenities one could need, except cooling seats. Heated seats, which are very comfortable, are excellent. Braking and steering are precise and give the driver a great sense of control. Only downsides... clutch in the manual is not very forgiving and the trunk is slightly small, but rear seats do fold down in a 40/60 split configuration. Also a little pricey for a VW. Only issue in 3 years is with the Nav monitor which would periodically shut off. Issue was promptly resolved by the dealer. Would absolutely buy this car again.
  • VERY Sporty, yet still a practical car

    I love my Golf R. Purchased used with 10k miles, Ive put another 10 on it and it is holding up great. Its solid enough that Ive had no concerns taking it to a track event one weekend and then on a 300 + mile trip the next weekend. The interior quality is superb, not flashy but clearly nice, like an entry level luxury car which really makes this car feel like an even better value. After having driving a GTI for 3 years before upgrading to the R, I can say that the R is a much more solid and comfortable feeling car (when in comfort or race mode). It could have more power, like its rival the Focus RS, but it is a much nicer feeling car and a much preferable daily driver. And if you wanted to, there are aftermarket ECU tunes that supposedly dont reduce the reliability because the engine is already overbuilt that can put the car in the 370hp range for less than 1k. Awesome car. And it appears to be holding its value very well, which I am please to see. Highly recommend it.
  • This is MY perfect car

    The Mk7 Golf R is my perfect car. Whatever other comparable car I compare it against, the R always wins. After a 800-dollar ECU upgrade this car has equivalent 0-60 and 1/4 mile performance to a BMW M240 or a Porsche Cayman, which are arguably the class leaders in small to medium sports cars. Given the equipment that comes standard on the Golf R (adaptive cruise, lane assist, parking sensors, auto emergency braking, adjustable suspension, high end stereo, leather, automatic transmission, Android Auto) you are paying about 30-40 k less than those aforementioned cars similarly equipped. So the Golf R gives you high performance for a lot less money than BMW or Porsche, which covers performance and value. Im taking off 2 points for reliability because Ive had some niggles in the first year of ownership; hatch wouldnt unlatch and the lock had to be replaced once. Drivers window wont always auto up/down; thats still hit or miss today, but it always moves manually so its a minor annoyance. Android Auto is 90% reliable, but I suspect Google is as much to blame as VW. Build quality is as good as anything Ive driven for this money. Driving experience is awesome. In race mode it is quick, no wheel spin whatsoever on normal surfaces. Beats stock V8s all day. In comfort mode with adaptive cruise control, road trips in traffic become much less stressful, as well as the daily commute. Loves going round corners, I havent yet felt it over or under steer. The ride is firm without being brutal like a Focus RS. cabin noise is good considering 19 tires. Design is grown-up and unflashy. but that can be a matter of taste and might seem dull to some. Comfort and convenience; I really wanted a high performance small or medium wagon, but theyre not available in the US anymore unless you want to go 100k on an E class AMG. Hatchback is the closest I can get, and so far its fine. My kids have keft home, but I can ferry 4 adults to lunch and back in comfort. No car is perfect; I wish it was a little bigger in the back, I wish it was 100% reliable, I wish the transmission overhaul isnt going to cost 1500 in a few years, but compared to any other car the Golf R is perfect for me. Its less money than BMW, Audi or Porsche. Its more comfortable than a Focus RS, and has more standard eq. its more grown up than a Civic R, and has more standard eq. Its faster than a Mustang GT, and a lot more practical. It gets 25 mpg on average, and I push it plenty. The insurance is the same as my wifes GTI.
