Most Wanted: Volkswagen Golf R

carwow 2021 Car of the Year Awards

Going by the amount of traffic it gets to our news pages, the forthcoming Volkswagen Golf R is going to fly out of showrooms. It is a 320hp German pocket rocket that will do 0-60mph in 4.7 seconds, helped by its standard four-wheel-drive system. In a very un-Volkswagen-ey, move it even has a ‘Drift’ mode.

    Exterior - Shaped For Performance

    The design of the new Golf R: striking and full of expression. Starting with the brand new front bumper with its front spoiler, side wings and R-style air intake grilles above the exclusive side aprons and 18-inch Jerez alloy wheels, and stretching all the way through to the running gear, which has been lowered by 20 millimetres – the hallmark of an athlete. The R Performance package comes with optional highlights including a rear spoiler featuring a motorsport-style design and the 19-inch Estoril alloy wheels. For an even more superior look, there is the new rear bumper flanked by four chrome-plated twin tailpipes.

    Interior - Welcome To The Cockpit

    The interior of the new Golf R welcomes you with a level of sporty comfort that you can both see and feel. The driver and front passenger sit back on premium sport seats with built-in head restraints with an R-style design. For the first time, the configurable Digital Cockpit Pro instrument cluster brings together all sporty displays and controls into one special R-view tailored specifically to the Golf R. Another standard feature: the Discover Media Infotainment system including voice control. And thanks to the specially designed multifunction sports steering wheel plus R button, the Race profile is always just the touch of a button away.

    The Highlight In Your Golf R: IQ.LIGHT

    The Golf R is fitted with IQ.LIGHTs as standard including powerful LED matrix headlights fitted with “Dynamic Light Assist” main-beam control light up the road and that stretch all the way round to the side wings, while sleek LED tail light clusters dominate at the rear.  The package also includes innovative dynamic turn signals that use an animated strip of lights to show which way you are turning.

    Alexa Drives A Golf

    Amazon Elexa ​

    Amazon Alexa1 is now on board your Volkswagen, too. This means that you can use Alexa in exactly the same way you do at home. As such, Alexa can still help you to schedule appointments or draw up a shopping list while you are out and about. Can't get that one song out of your head? Then just ask Alexa to play the title over Amazon Music. Simply download Alexa as a free in-car app via the shop in your Golf.

    1.  Amazon, Alexa and all associated logos and motion marks are trademarks of, Inc. or its subsidiaries. The Alexa function shown depends on smart home technology; you need an Amazon user account to use Alexa. Volkswagen AG enables customers to access Alexa in vehicles; the cloud-based Alexa services are offered by Amazon. To be able to use the Alexa in-car app in a Volkswagen, you will also need a Volkswagen ID and a We Connect contract that includes the voice control option. You will be responsible for any data connection costs. The Alexa in-car app is only available/usable in vehicles with the country-specific equipment for United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, Austria, Italy, Spain and France. Your Volkswagen dealership can tell you whether your vehicle meets this requirement. The aforementioned countries are currently the only countries supported by the Alexa in-car app as Amazon Alexa is only available for these countries.

    Infotainment And Entertainment For Every Occasion 

    Wireless App-Connect​

    The App-Connect function is a convenient way to use apps and content.1 Music, messages, maps or audio books are transferred to the Infotainment system display, enabling you to use them in your direct line of vision. Three interfaces can be used to connect your smartphone: Apple CarPlayTM, Android AutoTM by Google and MirrorLink®. Particularly handy: use of Apple CarPlayTM with the wireless connection option for the “Discover Media” and “Discover Pro” navigation systems.

    1.   App-Connect is compatible with Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™ and MirrorLink® technologies. In order to prevent distraction, only certified apps can be started whilst the vehicle is in motion. In this context, please note that some apps are not available for each of these three options and the availability of this technology can vary from country to country. Information on smartphone compatibility can be found at and in addition for Apple CarPlay™ at, for Android Auto™ at and for MirrorLink® at 

    Keep Your Hands On The Wheel. And Leave Your Charging Cable At Home

    It Can See What Could Be Over The Horizon 


    The standard hazard warning function lends a hand with useful information, including warnings about construction work or rescue vehicles. Car2X technology uses WiFi to communicate (pWLAN).

    The  ACC adaptive cruise control with Car2X technology supports you with a range of handy information and can actively intervene in the event of an emergency (within the limits of the system). Like at the end of a traffic jam, for instance. With permanent data exchange via WiFi (pWLAN)*.

    * There must be other vehicles capable of communicating via WLANp within range.

    Keeps You On Track. And Other Road Users At A Distance

    Travel Assist

    The “Travel Assist” provides you with an extremely useful driving assistant in your vehicle. After all, at the press of a button it delivers a high level of driving comfort* by supporting you in monotonous and tiring driving situations:

    • Particularly on motorways and busy highways, “Travel Assist” is able to keep you in lane and at a certain speed, at the same time as monitoring the distance from the traffic in front.
    • When combined with the dual clutch gearbox (DSG), you can relax in stop-and-go traffic.

    * Within the limits of the system. The driver must be prepared at all times to override the assist system and is in no way released from their responsibility to drive the vehicle with caution

    Keeps It's Distance. And Sticks To Speed Limits

    Predictive cruise control

    The Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) helps you to maintain a set maximum speed* as well as the distance to the vehicle ahead. In conjunction with the navigation system, the ACC has been expanded to include predictive cruise control and cornering assist. This helps you to avoid breaking the speed limit because it is able to adopt official speed limits.** What’s more, the system uses journey data from the navigation system to adapt the vehicle’s speed to corners, junctions (turns) and roundabouts.**

    * Up to 130 mph.
    ** Within the limits of the system.

    Very Illuminating: Pleasant Colours For A More Relaxed Journey

    Background Lighting

    Immerse the interior of your Golf R in your favourite colour. Background lighting uses indirect lighting to create a pleasant atmosphere:

    • 30 different colours
    • The dash panel, centre console and also the front and rear doors are equipped with a light edge
    • The selected colour is transferred to the digital displays

    Awaiting Your Command: Voice Control

    Voice control

    Simply telling your Golf R when you want to listen to a different radio station, make a phone call, turn down the air conditioning system or take a different route: this is now possible with the voice control and without any special commands.

    Your Golf R will understand you even better with the online voice control function from We Connect Plus: this function has a better understanding of natural speech and is even more intuitive.

    Outside: Fast-Paced Inside: Chilled Out


    All of the components inside the R are carefully tailored to one another to give the vehicle its distinctively sporty look. This starts with the stainless steel pedals and extends to the decorative trims and hallmark stitching all the way to the black headliner. The LED background lighting adds accents of light in all the right places. And you’ll also notice straight away that the digital future has arrived in the cockpit. These features are dominated by high-resolution displays and the majority of functions, like the radio, air conditioning system and lighting, can be operated using touch-sensitive surfaces and sliders. Let’s touch.
