The 2022 Volkswagen Golf R will be powered by a 2.0-liter inline-four-cylinder engine under the hood. This powerplant churns out 315 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. It pairs nicely to a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. 4Motion® all-wheel drive comes standard, featuring a rear differential with the ability to actively distribute torque between the left and right rear wheels, resulting in improved handling. Six selectable drive modes are on hand: Comfort, Sport, Race, Special, Drift, and Individual. Drivers can switch between these modes by pressing an “R” button the steering wheel.
In addition to being a fast, fun-to-drive small car, the 2022 Golf R boasts classy looks, with a more sophisticated vibe than that conveyed by rivals in the class. It boasts a slew of unique design details and exclusive equipment that, as stated above, will set it apart from the 2022 Golf GTI. We’re delighted that both of these vehicles are looking so wonderful, as Volkswagen plans to stop selling the regular Golf hatchback and station wagons in the U.S. after this current model year.
