New Volkswagen Golf R Estate unveiled


New Volkswagen Golf R Estate unveiled

The new contract hire Volkswagen Golf R Estate is the most dynamic and powerful version of the car yet.

There is more space onboard and various innovations to deliver an excellent and agile estate car.

The Golf R Estate comes with the firm's all-wheel drive system, 4Motion, as standard and has the R Performance torque vectoring system to deliver agility.

It helps that there are additional driving modes for the R Performance package for drivers to enjoy, including 'Drift' mode to create power slides, and there's a Nürburgring mode called 'Special'.

Volkswagen Golf R Estate car lease

The Volkswagen Golf R Estate car lease comes with a 2.0-litre TSI petrol engine producing torque of 420Nm.

This power is delivered using a seven-speed dual clutch gearbox that VW says is R-specific and will propel the car from standstill to 62 mph in less than five seconds.

The estate's top speed is limited to 155 mph.

Without the restriction, Volkswagen says that the new Golf R Estate will achieve nearly 170 mph.

Even with all of this power, the Golf R Estate lease retains its abilities as a versatile all-rounder and is a family-friendly estate car for meeting a wide range of needs.

There's also R-specific sports running gear that sees the suspension being lowered by 200mm and VW says it has been designed with motor racing in mind.

There's plenty of room in the back, more than the previous version, and the boot is 611 litres - this expands to 1,652 litres with the rear seats folded flat.

Drivers also get a new multifunction sports leather steering wheel and VW his fitted premium sports seats for the driver and passenger.

The Golf R Estate controls

All of the Golf R Estate controls have been redesigned completely so there no analogue displays or classic controls.

The digital Cockpit Pro offering includes an engine speed display for the upper edge of the screen, plus a lap timer for those drivers wanting to check their car's performance on a racetrack.

The vehicle also comes with a new infotainment system with connectivity to various VW online services.

Perhaps the biggest innovation is a new braking system for the estate which utilises 18-inch brake discs on the front axle - these are larger than the predecessors to deliver better braking performance.

For those drivers wanting to lease a powerful family estate, the VW Golf R Estate is a contract hire offering worth considering.
