Features and Specs of the 2018 Volkswagen Golf R
Available in only one trim (Golf R with DCC and Navigation), the Golf R hits the ground running in 2018 with a newly updated TSI® 2.0-liter engine that can reach up to 292 hp when paired with premium fuel. The engine is then mated to either a 7-speed DSG® automatic transmission that comes with Tiptronic® and a new Start-Stop System, or a 6-speed manual transmission that allows the new Golf R to get an EPA-estimated 29 miles per gallon of gas on the highway. Other new notable features found standard on the 2018 VW Golf R include an Adaptive Front-lighting System, customizable Volkswagen Digital Cockpit, and Front Assist with a Pedestrian Monitoring feature.
How Much Does the 2018 Volkswagen Golf R Cost?
Can you put a price on exhilaration? We guess so, considering the new Volkswagen Golf R starts at about $39,785 for the manual transmission and $40,885 seven-speed DSG automatic transmission. The Golf R also comes with a brand-new Volkswagen People First Warranty, which shows customers that VW stands by their vehicles by offering a six-year or 72,000-mile bumper-to-bumper New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
