2017 Volkswagen Golf R Oneonta NY
The premier performance hatchback is back and better than ever. The 2017 Volkswagen Golf R combines power and a pristine sporty, stylish design with exquisite handling and top-notch fuel efficiency to make a hatchback unlike any other. And we’ve got it right here in Oneonta NY. So if you’re looking for a compact hatchback with the gas mileage the class is known for without having to give up horsepower and torque, the 2017 VW Golf R is the vehicle for you.
The already impressive Golf R received a few upgrades this model year, making it safer and sleeker than ever before. Its 19-inch Pretoria aluminum-alloy wheels show you’re a force to be reckoned with while its new driver assistance features make driving the 2017 Golf R as safe as it is enjoyable. Add to that its new blue-accented gauges, dual exhaust with quad tips and bucket-style, race-inspired front seats, and you’ve got a compact hatchback that makes you feel like you belong on the Autobahn.
The 2017 VW Golf R’s 2.0L 4-cylinder, 16V turbocharged engine will make you forget you’re in a compact hatchback as it pumps out 292 horsepower and 280 lb-ft. of torque. While that blows away most of the hatchback competition, the Golf R keeps up with its brethren by getting 22 city miles per gallon and 31 highway miles per gallon.
With Volkswagen’s DCC Dynamic Chassis Control, your 2017 Golf R has four modes of suspension firmness to choose from. DCC adaptively controls the damper valves with a newly-refined algorithm. It takes input signals from wheel sensors and front and rear acceleration sensors to adjust the optimal dampening force and selectively apply force to the four wheels individually.
The Golf R’s new driver assistance package makes it one of the safest vehicles on the road. With features like the forward collision warning system, autonomous emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, rear traffic alerts, lane departure warnings, adaptive cruise control and park pilot, you’ll have less to worry about and more time to enjoy the ride.
