2012 Volkswagen Golf R Trims

2 Door

Avg. Price: $29,028

New for 2012, the Volkswagen Golf R 2-Door hatchback jumps out from 0-60 in just 5.6 seconds, thanks to its 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, borrowed from the Audi TT 2-door sport hatchback. The Golf R's turbocharged powerplant generates 256 hp and 243 lb-ft of torque, and mates to a close-ratio, short-throw 6-speed manual transmission designed for high-torque operation. VW does not offer the U.S. version of the Golf R with an optional 6-speed DSG automatic transmission, as it does in Europe. However, VW's 4Motion all-wheel-drive (AWD) system comes standard on the Golf R. Fuel economy numbers check in at 19 mpg city/27 highway. Standard safety features include 6 airbags, as well as electronic stability control and antilock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution and brake assist. In addition, VW includes an Intelligent Crash Response System, which shuts off the fuel pump, unlocks the doors and turns on the hazard lights in certain types of collisions.

Inside, the Golf R's spacious, upscale cabin comes well-equipped with such standard features as leather upholstery, aluminum pedals, aluminum trim on the dash and doors, unique instrument gauges with blue needles and R logos on the sill plates and front sport seats. VW also includes a unique shift knob with a R design and a unique multifunction leather-wrapped sport steering wheel with black-gloss spokes. The front seats feature supportive side bolsters and 8-way manual adjustment, while the rear seat splits 60/40 and folds down to expand cargo space. Additional standard features include Climatronic automatic dual-zone climate control, cruise control, a keyless remote and a Premium VIII 8-speaker audio system with a touchscreen, HD Radio, SiriusXM satellite radio, a CD/MP3 player, Bluetooth, an iPod port and an auxiliary input jack. Outside, the Golf R displays a number of unique features designed to help it stand out from a crowd, including a restyled front end with a new bumper, a black-gloss radiator grille, 3 front air intakes, LED daytime running lights and black-framed HID headlights with an Adaptive Front Lighting System. Flared side skirts, exterior mirrors with a black-gloss finish, a new rear bumper, a black-gloss diffuser and dual centered exhaust pipes are among the other exterior features. The 2012 Golf R 2-Door rides on 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.
