Learn the Performance Specs 2023 Volkswagen Golf R!

The 2023 Volkswagen Golf R has a little more performance than the base edition of the vehicle, which smooths the edges of your top speed and gives it an advantage while passing on the highway. Additionally, it features all-wheel drive and a drift mode to give it an edge over rival sedans in drag races. Inexperienced drivers will almost certainly be turned off by the Drift mode, which must be explained to parents unfamiliar with drifting cars or even skilled drifters. But for experienced drivers who can use precision steering to accelerate through corners, this is a tremendously enjoyable feature. Join us at Karen Radley Volkswagen in Woodbridge, VA, as we learn more about the 2023 Volkswagen Golf R in this article.    

Key Features of the 2023 Volkswagen Golf R!  

The Golf R’s 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder turbo engine produces 315 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. The engine is coupled with one of two transmissions: a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic or a six-speed manual. The all-wheel-drive system’s basic configuration incorporates a rear differential that distributes torque to the left and right rear wheels. Selectable drive modes for the Golf R can be selected by pressing the “R” button on the steering wheel (Comfort, Sport, Race, Special, Drift, and Individual). Every model comes with a performance exhaust system, bigger front disc brakes, and variable-ratio steering. A pair of 19-inch wheels with summer performance tires are also on it.
