VW Unveils Golf 4Motion

Hatchback

Updated all-wheel drive system provides more power coupled with better fuel economy.

The new seventh-gen Golf range has just been expanded with the unveiling of the automaker's updated 4MOTION all-wheel drive system, which VW says is one of the most efficient permanent four-wheel drive systems in the world and is available on both 2- and 4-door Golf models combined with two turbo diesel engines. The latest iteration uses an enhanced, fifth-gen Haldex coupling and has been rolled out in Europe with three levels of specification, namely Trendline, Comfortline, and Highline.

Compared to the outgoing Golf 4MOTION, the new four-wheel drive Golf is more powerful and up to 15 percent more fuel efficient to boot. Standard equipment includes a Stop/Start system, battery regeneration, four-wheel electronic differential (EDS), an Automatic Post-Collision Braking System, daytime running lights, and a TFT display with touchscreen. German buyers will have to pay an additional 1,800 Euros premium for the 4MOTION system.
