Since 1986, Volkswagen offers AWD version of its mega-popular Golf.
It was therefore expect to see appear such a variation of the 7th generation Golf.
This is now done with the release in Germany, VII Golf 4MOTION proposed versions Trendline, Comfortline and Highline.
This new version has a Haldex AWD system, lightened up to 1.4 kg weight of the current system.
This allows the car to have a fuel consumption reduced by 15%.
4MOTION4MOTION technology favors the FWD mode with a distribution of 90% on the front wheels, against 10% on the rear wheels, and in normal driving. When there is loss of traction torque distribution will vary in proportion to the importance of this loss of traction.
Torque distribution can even reach the inverse proportion, that is to say 10% on the front wheels and 90% to the rear wheels.
On the German market, the Volkswagen Golf 4MOTION is offered first powered by two diesel engines:
1. 4L 1.6-liter TDI with 105 hp
2. 4L 2.0-liter TDI with 150 hp
