Technology

From the racetrack directly to the road: thanks to the permanent 4MOTION four-wheel drive and powerful TSI engine with turbocharger technology and direct injection, you can enjoy an extraordinary driving experience.

The permanent 4MOTION four-wheel drive distributes the TSI engine's power to all four wheels as required. This prevents wheel spin and locking, and helps your Golf Estate R gain traction on virtually any surface. In combination with the 7-gear DSG dual clutch transmission, the new Golf Estate R accelerates efficiently without traction loss.

Driver assistance

The intelligent driver assistance systems in your Golf Estate R ensures more driving comfort and can help you deal with critical situations very well or even avoid them. Even if you only notice this technology on rare occasions, it feels good to know that it is there.

Many drivers list manoeuvring with a trailer attached to the back as one of the toughest challenges they face. That’s why the Golf Estate R comes with Trailer Assist, a system designed to make driving with a trailer in tow easier. To activate it all you need to do is engage first gear and press the parking aid button, then use the mirror adjustment switch to set where you want your trailer to go. The Golf Estate R will automatically steer while you simply control the gears, acceleration and braking.
