The race mode in the driving profile, developed especially for the Golf R Estate will adapt your car to your needs at the press of a button. In race mode, the start-stop mode is deactivated. The steering is more precise and the engine response, more direct. The optional adaptive chassis control DCC offers more precise tuning, adjusting each damper individually to the road conditions and driving situation in milliseconds.
Better acceleration, optimal traction: with 4MOTION permanent all-wheel drive, the Golf R Estate masterfully puts its power on the asphalt. The electronically managed all-wheel clutch allows variable distribution of tractive force between the front and rear axles. What is more, 4MOTION improves safety on wet or smooth roads and in fast corners.
With the new 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox which shifts gears in a few hundredths of a second, the Golf R Estate accelerates efficiently without losing pulling power.
The heart of the Golf R Estate is the TSI turbocharged engine. The 221 kW (300 PS) engine under the R-badged bonnet is just waiting to unleash its full power. And that will happen often enough because the combination of direct injection and intelligent turbocharging guarantee breathtaking experiences on the road.
The Sport HMI (Human Machine Interface) shows current engine figures, for example, charge pressure, a g-meter or the current output on the infotainment system screen in the centre console.
Experience the breath-taking acceleration and true exhilaration of a Launch Control start. In addition, one exclusive feature in the R models is the option of completely switching off the ESC Electronic Stability Control. This means you are in control of the vehicle at the limits.
