The Volkswagen Golf R stands out as the most athletic version of the automaker’s popular hatchback. Don’t let its practical, conservative appearance fool you; this mighty car has the momentum to run with bigger sports cars on the market. The 2024 Volkswagen Golf R is a thrill to drive here in Cincinnati, Ohio.


A wild spirit waiting to be set loose

The VW Golf R is the very definition of “hot hatch” thanks to its turbocharged four-cylinder engine. VW engineers continue to fine-tune this motor with enhancements like an intercooler and FSI® direct fuel injection to produce swift, substantial power.

This year’s model yields 315 horsepower, which routes impeccably to each wheel thanks to the standard 4Motion all-wheel-drive system with XDS+ Cross Differential System. Given the car’s light curb weight, this motor has the muscle to throw the 2024 VW Golf R from 0-60 mph in around 4.5 seconds.[1]

And there’s no lag when launching thanks to the smooth DSG® dual-clutch transmission, although a manual transmission is still available for those who prefer the control of a stick shifter. Its compact build also helps with sudden braking and tight cornering, further proving that the VW Golf R is nimble enough for navigating any Cincy streets.


Nimble enough for crowded Cincy streets

Every mile behind the wheel of the 2024 VW Golf R will keep you at ease. Whether you’re pushing the VW Golf R to its full potential or making your morning commute, this premium hatchback glides on the pavement thanks to its DCC® Adaptive Chassis Control system, a standard feature. Also included are six different drive modes — like the Drift mode that favors the rear wheels — and large 19-inch wheels with slim performance tires.

Worried about this mighty motor burning through your gas budget? The 2024 VW Golf R is surprisingly fuel-efficient thanks to its meticulously optimized design. Its DCT version averages 22 mpg in cities and 31 mpg on highways, meaning it’s as fuel-efficient as sedans with a fraction of its brawn.[2]


Designed so you can see — and be seen — better

The 2024 VW Golf R bears the appearance you would expect on a hatchback but with some trendy enhancements that exhibit its athletic spirit. The roof spoiler, slip wheel spokes, and fascia-spanning LED light bar are highlights.

Speaking of lights, the VW Golf R shines in other ways, too. The recessed door handles illuminate upon your approach, as do the R-logo puddle lights mounted to the exterior mirrors. When you’re whipping around curves late at night in Cincinnati, the Active Cornering Lights broaden your visibility so nothing catches you by surprise.


Packed with goodies that will make you grin

The interior of the latest VW Golf R is what you’d expect given its sporty exterior. The Top Sport seats are wrapped in choice Nappa leather and crowned with the R logo that matches the signature blue contrast stitching. Use the 12-way adjuster to find your perfect position and then save it to the three-profile memory bank. Both rows enjoy heated seats on those cold Cincinnati winter days.

Mounted behind the wide steering wheel is the configurable 10-inch VW Digital Cockpit Pro display; it uses a performance layout so you can track your hatchback’s metrics. The screen is flanked by ambient lighting across the dashboard and doors, which you can toggle between 30 hues. Under your feet are the sleek, steel sport pedals that react to your every toe tap.

Enjoy driving again when you’re behind the wheel of the exhilarating 2024 VW Golf R. This hot hatch is waiting to impress you, so come to Joseph Volkswagen of Cincinnati for an unforgettable test drive.
