Adrenaline can come from many sources, ranging from a great day at the gym to the raw, primal feeling of red-lining your vehicle on an open stretch of the road. For the latter goal, we’d like to introduce you to the 2019 Volkswagen Golf R, by far the most powerful hatchback in the Volkswagen Golf family, and capable of taking you and your ride to heights (and speeds) you never thought possible.
Thanks to its 2.0-liter TSI R turbocharged engine, the 2019 Golf R is able to manufacture up to 288 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, translating to a sub-5 second 0-60 mph time. This, combined with a 7-speed DSG® automatic transmission and 4MOTION® all-wheel drive, ensures that you’ll have maximum fun and enjoyment no matter what condition (or road pattern) you’re driving through.
