Special features for 2012
Volkswagen is known for its approach to performance value, and the Golf R is no exception. It is the most expensive version of the Golf, with an engine and 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.
