The VW Golf Family is Suited for Any Driving Occasion

The 2016 VW Golf R is a high-octane, blazing-fast hatchback with a racer's heart and an urban legend's utility, thanks to its rear hatch and turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. And just as impressive is the 2016 Golf R's 292 HP, which will give you the edge off the blocks in any city situation and make changing lanes and merging onto the highway a breeze.

Situated between the value of the standard 2016 Golf hatchback and the street-cleaving power of the 2016 Golf R is the 2016 Golf GTI, which has a potent combination of power with 210 HP and utility, thanks to 52.7 cubic feet of available cargo room, the equivalent of 1492 liters. Both the 2016 Golf and the 2016 Golf R also have this much cargo room in back, and all three cars come with a touchscreen so you can control your sound system with ease, and have available VW Car-Net so you can sync up with your smart phone for navigation assistance, music streaming apps, and more.
