Consumers know that when they see an advertised “starting at” price for any vehicle, it means that there’s way more to include and add to the total cost with trims, packages, and accessories. So, when Volkswagen says its unique performance hatchback, the Golf R, starts at $44,740, you know that’s the rock bottom of pricing and available equipment.

Considering its unassuming prowess on the pavement, this incredible performer is worth every penny. However, it’s already kind of expensive. So, how much more can be added, and what will a fully loaded 2023 Volkswagen Golf R set you back?

Check out the baseline trim of the Volkswagen Golf R

Let’s explore the entry-level equipment for the 2023 Volkswagen Golf R. According to VW, you’ll still have quite the hatchback on your hands with its 4Motion AWD with Active Control and Driving Mode Selection feature. There’s also a torque vectoring system, a multimode DCC, and Adaptive Chassis Control.

This performance hatch comes with a four-cylinder Turbo 2.0-liter engine. That’s the rumble under the hood that produces 315 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. Those who love to drive will appreciate the standard six-speed manual transmission. All of these are designed to make even the baseline model Golf R a pavement-chomping performance beast.

Inside, there is plenty of comfort and convenience to enjoy, too. There’s a 10.25-inch digital instrument display, Harman Kardon premium audio, and a 10-inch touchscreen with navigation. Again, this entry-level hatchback (that certainly doesn’t feel entry-level) will start at $44,740.

What’s included with the Golf R’s 20th Anniversary Edition?

Volkswagen Golf R 20th Anniversary Edition | Volkswagen of America, Inc. Newspress Limited

New for 2023, the Volkswagen Golf R comes in a limited series for its 20th Anniversary Edition. The aesthetics are all enhanced for this version, including the 19-inch gloss black, multi-spoke alloy wheels with performance tires. There are gloss black mirror caps and “20 Years” logos on the B-Pillars and the mirror puddle light projection. You also get this Golf R with the iconic “R” logo on the hatch, fenders, and grille. The powertrain is the same, according to VW‘s spec sheet in the build-out form, which isn’t going to hurt anyone’s feelings. The starting MSRP for the Golf R 20th Anniversary Edition is $45,390.

Available add-ons that tack on more to the VW Golf R

Imagine you’re building out a fully loaded Volkswagen Golf R with every available package and extra. How much would that cost? For starters, as MotorTrend lists, you can add Bumperdillo Chrome for $165, rubber mats for $278, a luggage net for $110, and a first aid kit for $40. But there’s more.

Tack on features with supporting services and bump your purchase price even further.

  • VW Care for $165: Volkswagen Prepaid Scheduled Maintenance Contract w/ 30,000-Mile Servicing for Sedans/Hatchbacks; Warranty Full Service
  • Rearview Mirror W/HomeLink Connect for $385: Coming Home Device; Compass; Garage Door Opener; Rear View Mirror, Automatic
  • Car-Net® Safe & Secure 3-Year $285 or 5-Year $399: Remote Services; Telematics
  • Roadside Assistance Kit for $90: Blanket, Poncho, Whistle, Cable Ties, and Bandages; Booster Cables, Warning Triangle, LED Flashlight, Multi-Tool, Work Gloves, and PVC Tape

With all these additional features and extras, expect to add $2,500 more to your Volkswagen Golf R bill.

When the dust settles, and you’ve added every available extra there is to add, you’ll be close to $50,000. Of course, with tax, title, and licensing fees, your 2023 VW Golf R will put you well over that price tag. Remember, though, this is quite possibly the fastest hatchback VW produces, with serious performance chops you won’t find with other contenders. Paying extra for those additional features will only add to the comfort, convenience, aesthetics, and dynamics of owning such a rare and enjoyable car.
