Ask any enthusiast in the Twin Cities which sports compact car they would choose and you will get an argument. Even if two of the famed rides are no longer available, Volkswagen of Inver Grove has one way to settle this argument – a test drive in the Golf R.
Unlike the only remaining high-performance sports compact out in the market, the Golf R is a practical four-door hatchback. It offers seating for five and at least 13.7 cubic feet of cargo space - up to 52.7 cubic feet total with the rear seats folded down for more space to carry anything you have in mind while going fast on the highway.
The Golf R is powered by a 2.0-Liter turbocharged engine putting out a whopping 288 horsepower, as it runs through the DSG gearbox or a six-speed manual transmission and 4Motion all-wheel-drive system.
You can choose from a 40-color palette to individualize your Golf R to the color you want. This is something you will find in vehicles costing well over a hundred thousand dollars.
The Golf comes with Car-Net. This is the connected car services suite from Volkswagen that assists when the Golf is involved in an accident, is stolen or for any other emergencies and services as needed anytime, every day. In addition, you can connect your smartphone through Apple CarPlay or Android Auto through this system for further music playback and app usage through this system.
The new Golf is also safe. An advanced safety cage locks and a crash-optimized front end protects its occupants from any collision the Golf might encounter. There are seven active stability-enhancing systems to keep the Golf on the road. Every Golf gets anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-pressure distribution, adaptive airbags all around and an Intelligent Crash Response System. Additional features include Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking (Front Assist), Lane Departure Warning (Lane Assist), Blind Spot Monitor w/ Rear Traffic Alert, Park Distance Control (Park Pilot), and Parking Steering Assistant (Park Assist).
Pricing for the Golf R starts at $40,395 with the manual transmission.
