2019 Golf R Specs
2019 Golf R Specs welcome to vwsuvmodels.com now you can find expert reviews for the latest models Volkswagen SUVs from U.S. in our site. The German brand has tipped the current entry-level model 110tsi in favor of a three-member regular model pallet for the Hatchback, whereby the Trendline forms the basis of the assortment, followed by the middle-class Comfortline and the flagship Highline. All models will be equipped with the 110TSI engine-the diesel drive train will be wasted.
These three models will sit under the performance-oriented Golf GTI and Golf R models-which have already experienced some of their own changes.
Let’s start with the regular models, first. The Trendline model is described as ‘ new entry point to the Golf model Palette ‘ and offers ‘ strong customer value with a wide range of high-quality safety, infotainment and comfort equipment ‘.
Standard specification highlights include City Auto emergency braking and pedestrian detection, 16-inch light alloy wheels, a 8.0-inch media screen with sat-nav and “app connect ” (Apple CarPlay and Android Auto), a leather-wrapped steering wheel, reversing camera, Front and rear parking sensors, daytime running lights, LED tail lights, car headlights and windshield wipers, and ‘ maneuvering brakes ‘-a system that will prevent the car from hitting stationary items when parking.
The mid-range Comfortline has been further enhanced with added convenience and functionality, including the newly added keyless entry with push button start, power folding door mirrors and standard fit floor mats.
The Highline model is now even more valuable with the inclusion of a number of driver assistant functions as standard equipment “.
The new kit includes: Adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitor, tail-cross-traffic alarm, tracking support, “Traffic jam assist ” (with low-speed steering), “Emergency Assist ” (which can stop the car if the driver is not responsive), semi-autonomous Parking spaces, auto-high-beam headlights and driver profile setup with personalization settings.
All three models of the regular golf assortment will retain the brand’s 1.4-liter turbo engine with 110kW/250nm. It can only be had with a six-speed manual in the Trendline, while a seven-gang dual-clutch model (DSG) is optional in the Trendline and standard in the two higher spec models. Repeat only-there will be no more diesel drive option.
There are several equipment packages available: The models Trendline and Comfortline can be ordered with an optional driver assistance package with a large part of the kit, the standard is offered in the Highline. The Comfortline and Highline models are available with the Sound & Vision package, which includes a 9.2-inch media screen with sat nav and gesture control, as well as a Dynaudio premium sound system. The Highline remains available with the optional R-line package, consisting of R-line body styling and 18-inch wheels, R-line-specific interior design, progressive steering, sport suspension and tinted windows.

As far as the golf performance models are concerned, the GTI sees some further changes, with “performance and technical improvements recently introduced in the limited version GTI Performance Edition 1 now standard GTI equipment “. The updated model is always grunzbarer, the 2.0-liter turbo engine now shoots 180kW power (up 11kW) and 370nm (20Nm), and the six-speed manual was tilted only in favor of a seven-gear DSG. Further improvements include a front differential lock, larger ventilated front and rear disc brakes, the standard recording of VW’s “Active info display” (12.3-inch digital instrument cluster) and a newly added suite of High-end safety equipment to be seen in the Highline model.
While the spec on the GTI is generous, there are some optional extras. The Sound & Style package adds 19-inch Brescia light alloy wheels, a 9.2-inch media screen with NAV and gesture control, and a premium Dynaudio sound system. There is also the ‘ luxury package ‘, with Viennese leather trim, heated front seats with electric driver’s seat setting and memory settings, and a panoramic glass roof.
For the Golf R model, advanced driver assistance technologies have been added to an already convincing equipment list, which is exactly the same stuff you get in the Highline model as standard. There is no power-bump for golf R, but also the manual gearbox has been tilted-there is now only a seven-speed ‘ DSG ‘-double clutch car. The Golf R has only two options: the Panorama glass roof and the 400w Dynaudio sound system.
Volkswagen Australia claims that the new golf series “offers significantly increased value “, but full pricing is not yet known. Expect that all details will be announced before the start of the model 2019 in October.
