Volkswagen’s engineers have developed a new 4MOTION all-wheel drive system with torque vectoring on the rear axle to ensure the power is distributed in the most effective way. This forms the basis for the improved vehicle handling of the Golf R, which sets the standard in its vehicle class.

It delivers sheer power with sports-tuned suspension and the 4MOTION all-wheel drive ensures the driver both control and comfort.  The all-new Golf R releases power exactly when and where you need it and can accelerate to 100km/h in a mere 4.8 seconds.

This latest edition unites speed, precision and power achieving a driving experience like never before.

Golf GTI: Sporty, dynamic, intuitive

It is sportier, more dynamic, more intuitive and more responsive than ever before.
