Meet the all-new 2022 Volkswagen Golf R, the most powerful road-going version of iconic Golf hatchback yet.
The 167mph Golf comes with a ‘Drift’ mode that drivers can activate on public roads.
German automaker Volkswagen has officially revealed its new AWD 2022 Golf R – the most powerful road-going version of the Golf yet and it comes with a ‘Drift’ mode.
The aggressively styled 2022 Golf R all-wheel-drive hatchback is the most powerful model to ever wear the iconic Golf badge.
The 2022 Golf R comes with four driving modes, including Sport (default), Comfort, Race and configurable Individual — all accessed by pressing the blue R button on the steering wheel.
On the outside, it features an R-exclusive motorsport-style front splitter; 19-inch wheels; air intake grilles; and a radiator grille with an LED strip that lights up once the engine starts.
Other unique styling cues includes blue-painted brake calipers, side skirts, matte chrome exterior caps with the ‘R’ logo, and a standard sunroof.
At the rear, the bumper has a diffuser and a sport exhaust system featuring a chrome-plated twin tailpipes.
Three unique exterior colors, including the Lapiz Blue Metallic, Pure White, and Deep Black Pearl Effect, are available.
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.
