The Golf R comes with a new 2.0L TSI turbocharged engine and a 7-speed wet clutch direct shift gearbox (DSG), with an impressive output of 290 PS and a torque of 380 Nm between 2,000 to 5,400rpm transferred to the wheels via 4MOTION all-wheel drive system.

It however, does not come with the KESSY keyless locking and engine starting system, exterior mirror memory function and power-adjustable driver seat.
Mr Erik Winter, Managing Director of VPCM said that the Golf R is one of the most desirable Volkswagen models of all time, and the availability of the 3-door Golf R should have fans excited. “This truly is an opportunity for enthusiasts to be part of something special, as the 3-door Golf R is a rare beast here in Malaysia. With such a cult following, we are confident that all 10 units will be sold very quickly,“ he said.
The ultimate performance hatch, the Golf R has set and broken numerous track records around the world. On the road and track, its appeal lies in the fact that it is one of the most well-rounded cars available in the market.
