There’s an indescribable feeling that comes with driving the Golf R Wagon. Race-bred for excitement, it offers the perfect blend of sportiness, flexibility and downright driver fun. Add in innovative technologies, luxurious appointments and abundant boot space and the Golf R Wagon becomes the heart-stirring performance car you just have to experience.
There can be no denying the stunning performance abilities of the Golf R Wagon, particularly when R Performance ‘Race’ and ‘Drift’ driving profile modes are selected for supreme traction or spectacular drifting action.
Six available driving profiles provide you with ultimate control of the Golf R Wagon’s ride and handling characteristics. Your senses will come alive when you press the ‘R’ logo on the steering wheel to activate ‘Race’ mode. Take exhilaration to the next level when you choose exclusive R Performance ‘Drift’ and ‘Special’ modes. ‘Drift’ modifies the vehicle for pulsating drifting capability away from public roads and ‘Special’ tunes it for racing conditions such as on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife.
The Golf R Wagon’s design is at once assertive, powerful and alluringly sophisticated. With its lowered stance, large lower intake and body-coloured side sills, the Golf R Wagon has been designed to make the ultimate design impact. Enticing styling is taken to the next level with a four-chamber chrome-plated exhaust system that is the perfect complement to the Golf R Wagon’s chrome roof rails.
Buckets seats with perforated Nappa leather1 and embossed R logo provide all the support you need during hard cornering, while the multifunction sports steering wheel with blue decorative seams and large gearshift paddles offer immersive feedback and precision control.
Lightweight 19” Estoril alloy wheels feature an aerodynamic design to spirit the Golf R Wagon down any road, while blue performance brake callipers offer ferocious braking response.
Reveal the world around you and feel the warmth of the sun on your skin when you open up the Golf R Wagon’s panoramic electric glass sunroof.

Driving at night or in low-light conditions demands that you maintain optimal vision of the road ahead of you. The Golf R Wagon’s IQ.LIGHT Matrix LED headlights with Dynamic Light Assist and dynamic indicators take headlight performance to the next level by casting brilliant light in front of the Golf R Wagon.

With its broad stance, aerodynamic contours and premium R design features, the Golf R Wagon looks set to tear up the road. Sporty styling never looked this good.
The Golf R Wagon’s 2.0-litre TSI turbocharged engine is the most powerful ever put in a Golf. An impressive 235kW of power and 420Nm of torque can launch the Golf R Wagon from 0–100km/h in just 4.9 seconds.
All-wheel-drive 4MOTION with R-Performance Torque Vectoring makes the Golf R Wagon feel like its driving on rails. High-speed cornering speeds are made possible by distributing engine output not just between the front and rear axles, but also variably between the two rear wheels for electrifying grip and stability.
Project essential vehicle information such as speed and navigation assistance onto the inside of the windscreen with the Golf R Wagon’s clever and easy-to-use Head-up Display.
Every Golf R is packed with safety features designed to prevent an accident happening and mitigate the consequences of an unavoidable collision. Foremost among the clever technology contained in every Golf R is Proactive Occupant Protection. When a potential incident is detected, the system automatically tightens the front seat belts and closes the side windows (leaving a small crack) and sliding roof (if open) to better protect vehicle occupants.3
