Powerful estate with all-round talent – the new Golf R Estate
Breath-taking agility and optimum everyday practicality – that is what the new Golf R Estate offers. The Golf R Estate also sets visual benchmarks with its sporty interior and exterior design. The Golf R Estate is the perfect combination of the compact Golf R and a spacious estate.
Driving dynamics in a new dimension
Like the compact Golf R, the Golf R Estate also comes with the newly-developed 4MOTION all-wheel drive system, including R Performance torque vectoring with wheel-selective torque control on the rear axle. This not only distributes the power between the front and rear axle as needed, via a new rear-axle differential, but also between each rear wheel. The innovative drive system significantly increases the agility of the new Golf R Estate, particularly in corners. At the same time, it also increases safety, as more power is guided to the outer wheel at the rear of the car when cornering.
The 4MOTION all-wheel drive system is linked through the Vehicle Dynamics Manager to other chassis systems, like the electronic differential lock (XDS) and optional Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC), which allows various configurations.
A true performer, even in day-to-day use
The dynamic estate car also boasts a generous amount of space. The long wheelbase of the Golf R Estate – 50 mm longer than the Golf hatchback – allows a particularly spacious interior. The optional, electrically-retractable trailer hitch rounds off the Golf R Estate as a high-performance estate car for everyday use.
