What's More Exciting than a Golf GTI? A Golf R of Course!

The Volkswagen Golf GTI has long ruled the roost of hot hatches in the U.S. but now there is something that is just as good looking, but faster on the market. The Volkswagen Golf R takes everything that is good about the Volkswagen Golf GTI and turns it up to 11! With the same exact engine the Volkswagen Golf R achieves more power and thanks to its 4MOTION® all-wheel drive system, it hugs the road effortlessly.

Now, we want to be clear, we love the Volkswagen Golf GTI but as with anything sometimes more is better. More power and more control means more fun in our eyes. The 2.0L TSI® engine creates 292 horsepower and 280 lb.-ft. of torquesix-speed DSG® automatic transmission. Power is delivered to all four wheels and it handles with ease. The handling is reminiscent of the Volkswagen Golf GTI which is a good thing, actually a great thing. Driving this hot hatch will send tingles down your spine and get your heart pumping in no time.

Yes, the Volkswagen Golf R is a performance car under the hood, but it will not direct any attention from onlookers on the road, unless they know what to look for. This may be the most appealing piece to the Volkswagen Golf R because it does not look like it should be doing 0-60 in under five seconds. It is sophisticated and put together, but when you push the throttle, it is ready to come alive.

At Sonnen Volkswagen in San Rafael, CA we sadly do not have any of these on our lot currently, but our inventory is always changing. If you are looking to make this car your next hot hatch, come on down to 720 Francisco Boulevard West and we would be more than happy to help you find or order the one you have been looking for.
