Photos of the Volkswagen Golf / Rabbit / GTI

Little about the Golf R's face suggests its performance potential.

To distinguish a Golf R from a GTI, look for these wheels. OR a little R in the grille.

The standard 18-inch wheels fill their openings plenty well. But 19s are optional.

The latest Golf is the most attractive yet. My favorite angle. Quad tips on the Golf R.

If you've seen the inside of a GTI, you know what to expect. Standard leather, so no plaid cloth.

As with the exterior, nothing flashy inside the car, just good, clean design.

Well-designed controls. This is a 2015. 2016s have much-improved infotainment systems.

Comfortable, supportive front seats. The driver seat has standard 4-way power lumbar adjustment.

Not obvious in this photo owing to the position of the front seat, but adult-friendly back seat.

High-performance cars don't come much more versatile than the Golf R.

After seeing the exterior and interior, were you expecting a special fancy engine cover?

No eye candy under the engine cover, either, but everything is neatly assembled.
