Volkswagen Golf R Revolutionizes What You Think of a Hatchback

Don't let the size fool you. The Volkswagen Golf R is more than your typical hatchback. With its four doors and seating for five, this mighty compact runs more like a powerful sedan than a hot hatch. It will force you to think twice about overlooking it based on its size. If you don't believe us, visit Don Thornton Volkswagen in Tulsa to see the 2019 Volkswagen Golf R for yourself.

The Volkswagen Golf R doesn't have the trim or engine levels to choose from, like many of other models, but options are still available. Name another model that gives you more than 40 different colors. There is plenty of power packed inside the compact frame, with its all-wheel drive and 288-horsepower 2.0-liter inline four engine. Pick from the standard six-speed manual transmission or the optional seven-speed dual clutch automatic transmission.

Another thing the Golf R has over its competitors is its impressive fuel economy. It is hard to match its EPA estimated 23 mpg when driving through Owasso and 30 mpg when taking I-44 from Broken Arrow to Claremore in your automatic Golf R.

The 2019 version of the Golf R comes with a upscale interior that really showcases the Volkswagen Digital Cockpit customizable display and technology features. The dual-zone climate and ventilated seats come in handy during the Oklahoma Summers in Bixby. You'll notice the clear eight-inch display screen for the Car-Net infotainment system. Connect your smartphone to the Apple CarPlay or Android Auto integrations. You get a USB port under the console, and two more are easily accessible.

There is no reason to worry about how small your Golf R is. Not only do you get a roomy cabin, you can load lots of stuff in the 22.8 cubic feet of cargo space. Or fold down the seats and you can get 52.7 cubic feet of storage. The large hatch door gives you plenty of room to easily load your cargo.

When you drive the Volkswagen Golf R you find yourself oblivious to the fact you are driving a hot hatch and not a luxury sedan. It offers the same safety features you would find in a car like the Volkswagen Passat or Jetta, just in a smaller package. If you prefer a compact car that shows off your personal style and flare, the Volkswagen Golf R from Don Thornton Volkswagen of Tulsa is the car you need to be driving.
