The permanent 4MOTION four-wheel drive distributes the TSI engine's power to all four wheels as required. This prevents wheelspin 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 R accelerates efficiently without traction loss.

Are you still doing all the parking yourself? The optional Park Assist system can save you cranking the steering wheel, and make it easier to find a parking space. Ultrasound sensors can determine whether your Golf will fit into a space.
