Special features for 2013

Volkswagen is known for its approach to performance value, and the Golf R is no exception. The Golf R is the priciest version of the Golf, with an 2.0L engine and all-wheel drivetrain taken directly from the Audi TTS, but the base price comes in $10,000 less. The Golf R's understated styling and a well-engineered interior are classic Volkswagen. The Golf also comes in both 3- and 5-door variations for greater flexibility.
Relatively unchanged for 2013, the Volkswagen Golf R is a performance-oriented hatchback available in three door and five door trim levels. The Golf R is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that produces 256 hp and 243 lb-ft of torque, for a 0-60 time of 5.6 seconds. A 6-speed manual is mated to AWD to enable an EPA estimated 19 mpg city and 27 mpg highway. Features include 18-inch alloy wheels, sport seats with leather trim, R body kit and badging, dual-zone automatic climate control, premium audio system, push button start, and touchscreen navigation. Safety is comprised of advanced airbags, electronic stability control (ESC), anti-slip regulation, electronic brake-pressure distribution (EBD), electronic differential lock, engine braking assist (EBA), and hydraulic brake assist (HBA). The Golf R is backed by a 3-year/36,000-mile warranty.
