What’s Special About the 2022 Volkswagen Golf R?

The 2022 Volkswagen Golf R is a real improvement over the 2019 model, and LaGrange drivers can expect it to be sporty and enjoyable to drive. A re-styled exterior and a revamped engine and interior should make it highly competitive. In terms of safety, the 2022 Volkswagen Golf R is likely to offer as much driver-assistance and safety technology as the 2019 model. This means we can expect forward-collision warning, automated emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, and a host of other features.

It will also have a much sportier aesthetic compared to the previous generation. Stainless-steel pedals, ambient interior lighting in 30 colors, and impressive cargo space will make riding in the 2022 Volkswagen Golf R a beautiful and comfortable experience.

The 2022 Volkswagen Golf R engine will also be much more powerful. A 2.0L inline-four-cylinder is expected to provide 315 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque, which is significantly more than the 288 hp and 280 lb-ft of the 2019 Volkswagen Golf R.

2022 Volkswagen Golf R Release Date

The 2022 Volkswagen Golf R release date is still shrouded in some mystery. The official release date hasn’t been announced yet, but there is a tentative expectation for it to arrive sometime in late 2021.
