As we say goodbye to the Volkswagen Golf this year, its offspring models will continue to be produced and sold to those in the Thousand Oaks, CA area. However, another model will make its return. Last produced for the 2019 model year, the Volkswagen Golf R will arrive this year with a bang. But while the previous model had all-wheel drive, will the 2022 VW Golf R have it? At Neftin Volkswagen, we investigate the latest news below:

2022 Volkswagen Golf R Will Have All-Wheel Drive

One of the exciting additions coming to the 2022 Volkswagen Golf R will be in its 4Motion® All-Wheel Drive offering with rear-axle torque vectoring. While the previous models have offered it, the additional rear axle support will help maintain the model’s whopping 315 horsepower and 310 ft-lbs of torque coming from its engine. While the previous 4Motion® drive system worked for a 50-50 balance to all wheels, the rear torque vectoring can distribute 100 percent of torque to the rear wheels. Because of this high-tech capability, the model will have a new track-only “Drift Mode” in the Drive Mode Selection.

Other Upcoming Features for the 2022 Volkswagen Golf R

Ready to hit the roads, the 2022 Volkswagen Golf R will surprise many with its performance and new features. As mentioned before, the model will offer a new engine inside its single trim level. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder option will be the most powerful to-date. However, the model will also receive a sleeker look and overall design from its previous 2019 model.
