But in December 2012 the automaker distributed a video involving the modification of the model series. Like the hatch, convertible sixth generation Golf R is equipped with a 2.0-liter turbo engine TSI with 270 hp (340 Nm) and all-wheel drive. Link to the wheels is transmitted by a robotic transmission DSG, enabling the car to accelerate from zero to a hundred in less than six seconds (the maximum speed is limited to 250 km/h). Convertible Volkswagen Golf R has a fabric folding roof, which, most likely, as in the version of the Golf GTI Cabrio, is raised and lowered by means of the electric drive in 9.5 seconds.

Externally, the new product can be easily distinguished by the front bumper with large air intakes and LED strips running lights, a large 19-inch alloy wheels, two round branch pipes of the exhaust system, brake calipers reinforced and lowered by 25 mm suspension.
