On the outside, the Volkswagen hatchback stands out with its large air vents, bluish accents and chrome mirror caps. The Golf drives on high-performance tires and aerodynamically styled 19-inch wheels, just like the rest of the body.

The Golf R interior is just as distinctive, with a cabin called “Interio-R”. It features a perforated leather-wrapped multi-function sports steering wheel especially provided with ergonomic controls. The seats are heated and ventilated in the front and heated in the back. And let’s not forget the 30-color ambient lighting!

Dimensions of the 2023 VW Golf R

A little longer and lower than the GTI, the Volkswagen Golf R asserts its sporty character. It has a length of 4,290 mm, a width of 1,789 mm and a height of 1,439 mm. The wheelbase measures 2,626 mm.

Engine and power

The Golf R is the most powerful of the lineup: motorized by a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine, it delivers 315 horsepower and 280 to 295 lb-ft of torque. This allows it to go from 0 to 100 km/h in only 4.7 seconds!

As mentioned, it can be equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission or the 7-speed dual-clutch (DSG) automatic transmission. This one also comes with a gear selector on the steering wheel!

2023 VW Golf R: fuel consumption

Additional performance obviously means increased consumption; with the manual transmission, the car has an average combined consumption of 10.2 L/100 km. On the other hand, it manages to be much more frugal with the automatic transmission, a Volkswagen Golf R with an estimated average fuel consumption of 9.1 L/100 km.

2023 VW Golf R: cargo volume

One of the main advantages of hatchbacks is their practicality when it comes to cargo. With the Golf, you get a trunk with a maximum capacity of 374 liters, but also folding seats that allow you to free up 1,239 liters of cargo space! This allows you to carry all the equipment you need.

Let’s talk about the available VW technologies

The sporty compact sedan comes standard with all of Volkswagen’s advanced technologies. You get the Pro digital cockpit, a customizable and intuitive 10.25-inch screen, including a display mode exclusive to the R.

Your Apple and Android phone apps connect wirelessly to the infotainment system, which also includes a 10-inch navigation system. Wireless charging and voice commands also make your day-to-day life easier, as do driver assistance technologies!
