What Features are Coming to the 2022 Volkswagen Golf R?

Beyond its new powertrain, those interested in a 2022 Volkswagen Golf R can experience better drivability with new features. One major addition to the model is in the torque vectoring 4MotionĀ® All-Wheel Drive system. Seen in larger Volkswagen models, the Golf R has it equipped to offer selective wheel torque control on the rear axle. This can significantly increase the agility of the model, especially around corners. Plus, larger brakes have been added for safety. The sunroof, which was available to each model, now comes standard as well.
