The 2015 Volkswagen Golf R – The Most Powerful Yet

Posted on Jun 25, 2014 by

The most powerful Golf ever produced by – the 2015 Golf R – is set to arrive in the Middle East this August with an array of interesting features on offer. The standard model can be visually distinguished as an impressive sports car by details such as standard bi-xenon headlights with newly designed LED daytime running lights (in dual-U design); matte chrome door mirrors, dark red LED rear lights and two-branch exhaust system with four chrome tailpipes.

The interior underlines the Golf R’s positioning as the range’s flagship model with “carbon touch” inlays, sport seats in a “fabric-Alcantara” with decorative stitching in crystal grey; leather trimmed three-spoke sport steering wheel; automatic climate control and a touchscreen infotainment system.

With a six-speed dual-clutch gearbox (DSG), the new Golf R completes the classic sprint in 5.0 seconds and can reach a top speed of 250 km/h. Like all three previous Golf R models, the new vehicle also transfers its turbocharged engine power to the road via a permanent all-wheel drive system.

Delivering pure dynamic performance is a newly configured sport suspension system (body height lowered by 20 mm), with progressive steering and “ESC Sport” – which can now be fully deactivated for track driving. The 4MOTION system with a fifth generation Haldex coupling eliminates nearly all traction losses on the road.

Prices are expected to begin at AED 150,000 and hover upward until touching the AED 157,000 mark.
