The VW Golf R wagon takes the all-wheel-drive hot-hatch formula and applies it to a longroof body style.

The powertrain is shared with the hatchback, with a turbocharged 2.0-liter EA888 four-cylinder engine making 315 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque, paired with a seven-speed DSG twin-clutch gearbox and all-wheel drive.

The Golf R wagon sits on a 1.9-inch-longer wheelbase than the hatchback, and overall length has been extended by 13.9 inches. It is also 240 pounds heavier than the hatch.

As with the regular Golf wagon sold in Europe, the Golf R wagon’s cargo hold is impressively large: about 60 percent larger than the hatchback’s.

We expect the Golf R wagon to get to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds, just 0.3 second slower than the corresponding figure for the hatchback.

Like the Golf R hatch, the wagon gets a torque-biasing rear differential, and buyers can pay extra for an optional Drift mode.

Adaptive dampers are optional, with the DCC system offering no fewer than 15 levels of firmness when the Golf R is in its Individual mode.

In the UK, where we drove the car, the Golf R wagon costs 1955 pounds more than the hatchback. That’s $2400 at current exchange rates.

Plaid cloth upholstery is standard in Europe, with leather available as an option.
