Golf R Estate R

RRP £44,535

Currently unavailable on carwow

The Golf R estate has more aggressive-looking front and rear spoilers than a normal Golf, 18-inch alloy wheels, a rear diffuser under the rear bumper (for a sportier look and better aerodynamics) and roof-mounted spoiler, and quad chrome-tipped tail-pipes.

Parking sensors and a start-stop system to save fuel in traffic are all standard too. You also get Xenon headlights to help you see further at night, lower sports suspension to help reduce the amount the car leans in corners and front and rear parking sensors.

On the inside, the Golf R has a 3.5-inch touch-screen display and Bluetooth connectivity for wireless music streaming.
