Without a doubt, the new Golf R and GTI are true legends! In fact, they have already been named 2022 Car of the Year by The Car Guide.

The 2022 Volkswagen Golf R is a high-performance model offered at a starting price of $45,995.

The 2022 Volkswagen Golf GTI is available in three versions: GTI, Autobahn and Performance, offered at a very affordable base price of $31,495.


While you will instantly recognize the classic design of this legendary model, the new Volkswagen hatchback stands out with an even sportier and more modern design.

The exterior uses LED lights exclusively, while the front headlights are more elongated than in previous models. The headlights of the 2022 Volkswagen Golf GTI are flanked by fog lights consisting of 5 small X-shaped lamps on each side of the bumper, creating a unique look.

Whether on the 2022 Volkswagen Golf R or the 2022 VW Golf GTI, you will find a light strip at the front, which welcomes you when you arrive; this same ambient lighting lights up the headlights, door handles and side mirrors.

The different versions of the 2022 Golf GTI can be equipped with 17- or 18-inch wheels, while the Performance version features 19-inch Adelaide wheels. The Golf R comes standard with 19-inch high-performance wheels with a unique design.

This sporty design is complemented by a chrome dual-exhaust system and, on the 2022 Golf R, by new brakes with blue callipers and a two-piece spoiler for an even more aerodynamic design.

The interior is just as sports-oriented as the exterior thanks to its sports steering wheel, which comes standard with a heating function. This ergonomic wheel also features paddle shifters for versions with an automatic transmission.

Cloth or leather seats with integrated headrests complete the look, while the customizable ambient lighting with 30 colours creates a unique mood onboard.

Breathtaking Technical Performance

This VW sedan is extremely popular mainly because of how much fun it is to drive, and that is still true this year!


Equipped with a 2.0 L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, these cars will introduce you to real power.

The GTI generates 241 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque, while the sporty Golf R unleashes an impressive 315 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. Even better, it takes only 4.7 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h!

Cargo Volume

The Golf offers a good amount of cargo space, and it is particularly versatile by allowing you to lower the rear seats to free up even more space. The trunk offers 374 L of space, while the interior’s maximum cargo capacity is of up to 1,239 L!


True to its traditions, this Volkswagen offers purists the option of selecting a 6-speed manual transmission.

You can also choose to equip it with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, which lets you shift gears with the paddles on the steering wheel on the Golf R.

4Motion All-Wheel Drive

Exclusive to the 2022 Volkswagen Golf R, the standard 4Motion all-wheel drive system with its new torque vectoring increases the stability of your vehicle regardless of road conditions.

Drift Mode

The new torque vectoring system truly shines with this sporty driving mode, sending torque to the outside wheel for tighter, more controlled turns.

Special Mode

Tested on and designed for the Nürburgring Nordschleife, a racetrack in a mountainous area, the Special Mode is the best way of thriving on the most difficult type of tracks.

This mode engages the full power of the engine while softening the shock absorbers to deliver an exhilarating performance when driving on tough tracks.

R Performance Pack

Characterized by the two driving modes mentioned above, the R Performance Pack also includes a two-piece spoiler and Estoril alloy wheels.

Advanced VW Technologies

The interior places technology front and center with standard features such as a 10.25-inch Pro digital cockpit, which allows you to choose the information you wish to see displayed.

It can also be paired with the optional head-up display (HUD), which projects the information onto the windshield instead, including driving aids. It can also be used to display the navigation system of the 10-inch touchscreen.

You will also enjoy wireless connectivity to your Apple and Android apps, while the optional Harman/Kardon premium audio system will fill your cabin with exquisite sound quality.
