Sometimes an experience is so unfathomable you can't put it in words. That's what it's like to drive a vehicle in Volkswagen's R Range. Each R range vehicle offers an intricate blend of sportiness, sophistication and pulse-racing thrill. When what you feel is so completely indescribable, you know it's an R thing.
Feel exhilarated on any street with the R Range's powerful turbocharged TSI petrol engines. Offering outstanding power and torque, they can propel you to where you want to go. Plus, experience the supreme performance of the plug-in hybrid engine in the Touareg R PHEV, Volkswagen's most powerful production vehicle to date.

Handle every road like a racetrack with 4MOTION, our all-wheel-drive technology, with R-Performance Torque Vectoring. This feature distributes drive not just between the front and rear axles, but also variably between the two rear wheels, so your R Range vehicle drives with maximum grip and stability.
Not only do the R Range vehicles look the part with their striking blue brake callipers, you'll experience their superior speed and stability, plus enjoy the assurance of their razor-sharp reflexes.
Have full control in every driving situation, the driving profile selection allows you to switch between modes including Comfort, Sport and Race. The Golf R and Golf R Wagon feature two additional profiles: the "Special" profile is tuned to the bumps, elevations and corners of the iconic Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit, while the "Drift" profile distributes 100% of the rear torque to one wheel for optimal driving dynamics away from public roads.
The seamless combination of power, technology and style is what gives you the ultimate drive. Luckily for you, the R Range includes the latest generation of technology.
Everything you need for the road is at your fingertips thanks to the Digital Cockpit Pro, with unique R skin and graphics, and Discover Pro Navigation System. Your maps can also be projected on the Head Up Display so you can easily follow directions without taking your eyes off the road. If that's not enough, every vehicle in the R Range is also fitted with Wireless App-Connect1 so you can listen to your favourite tunes through the optional Harman Kardon premium sound system.
Everyone knows time flies when you're having fun. That's why we've made sure you can keep driving safely into the night with IQ.LIGHT Matrix LED headlights. They feature interactive light control so people, other vehicles and animals are more visible.
The R Range takes your safety seriously. Using a multi-function camera and radar Lane Assist can ensure you stay within lane markings while Front Assist can monitor potential collisions. The rear-view camera and semi-automated Park Assist's sensors help you manoeuvre into tricky parallel and right-angle spots with ease. If that's not enough, the R Range also features new safety systems that support you in critical situations, activate protective mechanisms to tighten seatbelts and roll the windows up, or even bring the vehicle to a stop.2
The R Range demands you experience it for yourself. And there's always something else to discover. Luxurious design, spine-tingling performance, premium equipment, cutting-edge technology - we're just getting started.
