Hey guys! Today i’m here with you to review one of Volkswagen’s most popular hatchbacks. The 2019 Volkswagen Golf R. Now,
they say that this car has two personalities. The speed-freak, and the comfortable daily driver.
Now, it’s hard to know for sure until we give it a try. So, without further ado, let’s jump on in! As Volkswagen puts it, and might I say
perfectly, This car is truly high performance art. Whatever your driving style is, feel free to adjust the suspension and the steering to your liking. I know from the experience of others, not so much my own, that actually adjusting the steering stiffness allows you to have more control over the car
when you’re throwing into corners. When it comes to drive modes, you are able to
set up your optimal ride with a choice of preset driving modes. Or, you can feel
free to mix and match to create your own. I truly love the fact that this isn’t
just optimal for a daily commute to work, but the track too. And I mean, pure track
performance! this comes with all-wheel drive grip,
fast shifting when driving manual, and a super responsive chassis and throttle. Go
ahead, turn all the corners! While driving in racing mode, you can expect some noise. With an electronically baffled, opened up exhaust You get a much louder, and might I say, a bit more obnoxious noise that we love to hate, and hate to love. All within the push of a button. With a maximum torque of 1,800 RPM’s,
what this Golf R saves on fuel, It delivers on performance. Speaking of
which, this gets 8.2 L/100km highway and 11.4/100km city. Last but not least, the Golf R comes at 288 horsepower. Bottom
line here is that you get 0 to 100 in less than 5 seconds. This 2019 Golf R
comes with the Black Styling package, which means it’s totally covered in R
badging from front to back. Take a look! This has bold design cues abound from
the inside out, including 19-inch wheels with performance tires and a dual
exhaust with quad tips. But let’s talk a little bit more about these seats. You’ll
truly be squeezing every bit of thrill out of every turn you take in this vehicle.
Plus, with the R emblazoned sport seats You’ll be doing so in style. In the
rear, you have 60/40 split folding seats with center armrest and pass-through.
When it comes to tech and safety features, this Golf R is equipped with the Driver Assistance package. This includes features like: Adaptive Cruise Control, Blind Spot Detection with Rear Traffic alert, In-lane Assist, Front Assist, which prevents accidents such as rear-ending, Light Assist, and Park Distance Control. If ever in a situation where slippage occurs, feel at ease with
Volkswagen’s 4-Motion all-wheel drive. Torque will be directed to the wheels
with grip, for the traction you require to correct yourself. Some other features
we love here that come standard are: App Connect Smartphone Integration with
Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and Mirrorlink. As well, this comes with Fender Premium audio system with subwoofer which you can connect to Bluetooth. Another cool addition is the vehicle button, which allows you to see the turbo PSI and G-force. I hope you guys feel like you’ve learned something today about the 2019 Golf R. I know personally, my favorite aspect of this car is that it’s so suitable in a multitude of conditions. Whether you’re on your way to work,
or on your way to the track. Take it for a test drive at your nearest Dilawri dealership, so you can see for yourself just how well The Golf R performs.
