2018 Volkswagen Golf R Seattle WA

Pushing the limits of what a hatchback can be, the 2018 Volkswagen Golf R is truly a performance masterpiece. This vehicle is filled with spine-tingling mechanics. From its impressive TSI® 2.0-liter engine that is turbocharged and subjected to a motorsports-style development program to its brand-new available seven-speed DSG automatic transmission with Tiptronic®, there's plenty to write home about when you get behind the wheel of the new Golf R.

In order to get the new Golf to reach an astounding horsepower rating of 292 and a torque rating of 280 pound-feet, the vehicle's engine had to be equipped with only the best in innovative performance engineering. For example, the inner-workings of the turbocharged engine features water-cooled exhaust gas channels, a fully-electronic coolant control system, variable valve timing on the intake and exhaust side, and other unique sport-performing aspects. The new Golf R is also equipped with Driving Mode Selection, which allows drivers to choose between “Normal,” “Individual,” “Eco,” and “Race” mode to fit your current mood.
