The new Golf 4MOTION

Wolfsburg/Kitzbühel, January 2013.

Volkswagen is expanding the new Golf range:following the models with front-wheel drive launched at the end of 2012, the versions with4MOTION all-wheel drive are now being unveiled. Volkswagen is thus continuing the longtradition of four-wheel drive Golf models – the first Golf with four driven wheels made itsdebut back in 1986. The new Golf’s permanent four-wheel drive system is one of the mostmodern and efficient of its kind in the world. In this latest version of the Golf 4MOTIONVolkswagen is using a four-wheel drive system with an enhanced, fifth-generation Haldexcoupling. The intelligently controlled 4MOTION drive weighs 1.4 kilograms less thanthe previous system, requires no pressure accumulator and reacts extremely quickly toevery conceivable influence exerted on it. The result is greater active safety and improvedhandling.

15 per cent lower fuel consumption. Volkswagen is offering the new Golf 4MOTION inEurope in three levels of specification (Trendline, Comfortline, Highline) and with twoturbo diesel engines that provide both high torque and great fuel efficiency. The commonrail four-cylinder engines deliver 77 kW/105 PS and 110 kW/150 PS and consume just4.5 / 4.7 litres of fuel respectively per 100 kilometres. Just how efficiently the four-wheel driveGolf works is shown by a fuel consumption comparison between the 103 kW/140 PS versionof the old Golf 4MOTION and the new 150 PS model: despite being 10 PS more powerful, the2013 Golf 4MOTION consumes 0.8 litres (15 per cent) less diesel.

High tech as standard. Like the front-wheel drive versions the new 4MOTION models areequipped as standard with a Stop/Start system and battery regeneration. Also includedas standard even on the base version (Trendline) are features such as the four-wheel EDS(electronic differential locks on both axles), the XDS front and rear axle transverse lock, the electronic stabilisation programme, an Automatic Post-Collision Braking System, sevenairbags, daytime running lights, air conditioning, electric windows front and back, a multifunctiondisplay (on-board computer) and a TFT display with touchscreen operation. Thepremium payable for the permanent four-wheel drive system on the Golf 4MOTION – soldfundamentally as a four-door vehicle – is € 1,800 in Germany.
