Assistants for everything. Based on Volkswagen’s MQB, the new Golf R Estate sets a new benchmark in terms of safety and comfort. Standard features include the lane departure warning system Lane Assist, the Autonomous Emergency Braking with City Emergency Braking function and pedestrian detection, the new turn-off assist, the Driver Alert System and the electronic differential lock XDS. Also included ex works are the Digital Cockpit Pro (digital instruments), the infotainment system Ready 2 Discover with 10.0-inch touchscreen, a new multifunction sports steering wheel, the Air Care Climatronic automatic climate control system, the Keyless Start system, a Bluetooth telephone interface and top-of-the-range sports seats as well as LED Plus headlights and LED tail light clusters including automatic headlight control. A new oncoming vehicle braking when turning function and the also new Car2X warning system considerably improve safety. Travel Assist enables assisted driving at speeds of up to 210 km/h, thereby enhancing travel comfort and therefore safety, too. In addition, the new Golf R Estate comes with the new IQ.LIGHT – LED matrix headlights as an option.
Wheels and tyres. 18-inch alloy wheels are provided as standard, with 19-inch wheels available as an option. In addition to the 19-inch alloy Estoril wheel, which is included in the R Performance package, the Adelaide wheel (8Jx19, 235/35 R 19, burnished spokes and interior surfaces in black) is also available in the size of 19 inches. Also on offer: the 18-inch Bergamo winter wheels and 19-inch semi-slicks (tyres) for drivers who primarily wish to drive their Golf R Estate on race tracks.
The seats. The new Golf R Estate comes as standard with top-of-the-range front sports seats including integrated head restraints and blue R logos on the front seat backrests. The seat centre panels are covered with the fabric seat covers “R” in black-blue. The inner side of the seat cushion bolsters is made of ArtVelours microfleece in Flint Grey. As an option, the new Golf R Estate can be ordered with the Nappa leather package including carbon look elements with blue applications in the side area. These seats come with active climate control and a blue R logo on the front backrests.
Large tilting panoramic sunroof. The Golf R Estate is optionally available with a newly developed, two-part panoramic tilting and sliding sunroof. The glass above the rear passengers is fixed; at the front, the translucent section can be lifted and moved to the rear via a touch slider in the headliner. In order to minimise noise from air turbulence at higher speeds, the open roof can be automatically closed a little more as the speed increases by briefly tapping the touch slider.
New functions available with the optional Climatronic. The optional 3-zone automatic climate control (Climatronic) offers new functions: Smart Climate can be used to launch preconfigured air conditioning functions – “Clear screen”, “Warm feet”, “Warm hands”, “Cool feet”, and “Fresh air” – from the screen or via voice control.
