Inside the 2022 Volkswagen Golf R

Inside, it has digital gauge cluster; a 10-inch Discover Pro touchscreen infotainment system; and a standard nappa leather seats with blue accents and a blue R logo stitching.

Powering it is a 320 horsepower 2.0-litre, four-cylinder, petrol engine that is linked to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.

It will do a 0-62 mph in 4.7 seconds and a top speed that is electronically limited to 155 mph. The top speed for the new Golf R increases to 167mph when you get the optional R-Performance pack.

The optional R-Performance upgrade pack also has two additional driving modes : Special and Drift; the later aimed at those who like the excitement of controlled sliding.

Volkswagen hasn’t announced the official pricing for the Golf R yet, but it will surely be pricier than the outgoing 2019 model that has a $40,395 starting price.
