2018 VW Golf R Design

The Golf R, such as the GTI, is an understated car. Nonetheless, it’s that this subtlety that makes the one-piece version so visually attractive. It does not need a big, shouty wing or striking red accents — it is stable in its level of performance without resorting to these primitive automotive threat gestures. Its barely angrier fascia, 19-inch wheels, and quad exhaust tips are persuasive enough. Contrary to more over-the-top offerings we are looking at you, Civic Type R), the Golf R is efreshingly subtle, {and to many onlookers, completely inoffensive.


The Golf’s cottage is easy, stylish, and coated in high quality substances. Black leather and soft-touch black plastics protect virtually every surface in hands reach, although there’s conservative use of piano black plastic on the infotainment screen and brushed aluminum on the gear lever. But if we had to dock the Golf R’s cottage anywhere, it’d be for its bland design. The new Jetta has exactly the same problem — the substances are great and the layout is clean, but it all feels a bit overly conservative and business-like.
