The new Volkswagen Golf R can now be ordered with a manual transmission. Since its local launch in February 2014, the new Golf R has sold over 740 units in spite of only being available with DSG transmission.

The new Golf R is powered by a newly designed 206 kW engine (380Nm of torque available from 1800rpm). Like all previous Golf R models, the new model also transfers its turbocharged engine power to the road via a permanent all-wheel drive system. In this case, it is the latest version of the 4MOTION system with a fifth-generation Haldex coupling.

A newly configured sport suspension system (body height lowered by 20 mm), coupled with the new progressive steering system and "ESC Sport" ensures that the dynamic driving experience is exceptional. Optional features include Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) system with the driving profile selector that features a new Race mode.

The Golf R with a 6-speed manual transmission reaches 100 km/h after just 5.2 seconds (previous model: 5.7 seconds). The car’s top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h. The fuel consumption is down from 8.5 to 6.9 l/100 km compared to that of the previous model. The new Golf R is equipped with BlueMotion Technology that offers Stop-Start system and battery regeneration.
