2013 Volkswagen Golf R Overview

The 2013 Volkswagen Golf R is a pretty bonkers car when you think about it.

Let’s look at the particulars just for a second: standard all-wheel drive, a 256-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that pumps out 243 pounds-feet of torque, and a six-speed manual. Add that all together and you get not just a recipe for fun behind the wheel, but a hot hatch that can compete with the best of them, especially since most of its brethren are front-wheel drive.

It could be said that the Golf R competes mostly against the Subaru Impreza WRX STi and the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution but it doesn’t have the rallying pedigree of those two. The Golf R will chew up the pavement however; 0-60 mph comes in only 5.6 seconds. The aforementioned six-speed manual is the only available transmission and the Golf R is rated at 19 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway.

There are a few exterior traits that distinguish the Golf R from the regular Golf, including standard 18-inch wheels, bi-xenon headlights, and a rear spoiler. Up front, the bumper separates the grille and a large from air dam, while in the rear twin exhaust pipes help to further the Golf R’s sporty appearance.

The Golf R is available in both two- and four-door variants, both of which seat up to five passengers. There is plenty of standard kit in the Golf R, including heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth connectivity, iPod cable, and a touchscreen sound system with HD radio. Also available are a navigation system, sunroof, and push-button start.

Six airbags come standard in the 2013 Golf R, as do antilock brakes, an electronic stability system, and traction control.

Fast, stylish, and a blast to drive, the 2013 Volkswagen Golf R combines German refinement and sensibility with forced-induction hijinks.
