Highlights of the Limited-Edition Golf R

Dynamic Performance 

The 20th Anniversary Edition builds on the latest generation VW Golf R, packing plenty of power to ensure an exciting drive each time you get behind the wheel. Like standard versions, this special edition comes with a 315-horsepower, EA888 evo4 TSI engine.

Drivers can choose between a 6-speed manual transmission or 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission – only available to drivers in North America. Both options are comparable in terms of torque, with manual versions boasting 280 lb-ft and automatic getting 295 lb-ft. To ensure precise handling and impeccable performance, the Golf R 20th Anniversary Edition comes standard with all-wheel drive and a DCC adaptive damping system.

Distinctive Design 

This red-hot hatchback looks as good as it rides, with three paint colors (Lapiz Blue Metallic, Deep Black Pearl, and Pure White) to choose from. These features are sure to turn heads:

  • 19-inch gloss black Estoril wheels
