Feel the power at your fingertips.
The new Golf R32 combines the understatement of a Golf hatch with the
performance of a fully-fledged sports car. Under its bonnet is an exceptional
3.2 litre V6 petrol engine which due to its narrow cylinder angle of only 15°
combines the compact dimensions of an in-line engine with the outstanding
dynamics of a 6-cylinder unit. The sound of the engine alone lets you know
that this is the ultimate Golf.
01 Behind the radiator grille lies the
powerful 3.2 litre V6 engine capable of
developing 184kW.
02 Twin exhaust tailpipes are more than just
The R32 is capable of generating a phenomenal 184kW at 6,300rpm of power
and a hefty 320Nm of torque at 2,500 – 3,000rpm. The engine thrusts the Golf
forwards from any point in the rev range – pressing you hard into your sports
bucket seat. This is an experience you will definitely want to repeat.

Coupled with a slick 6-speed manual transmission, the V6 engine can
accelerate the R32 from 0-100 km/h in an impressive 6.5 seconds. This engine
is a true sprinter, as you would expect of a thoroughbred sports car, and can
be equipped with the option of the 6-speed Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG),
which allows super-swift gear changes without interrupting the acceleration
of the car under power, resulting in a 0-100km/h time of just 6.2 seconds.
As well as improved acceleration figures, the outstanding DSG gearbox also
allows for improved fuel economy figures (9.8l/100km). The DSG gearbox

Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)
When braking, wheel speed sensors measure the road wheel
speed and should one or more wheels start to lock the ABS system
reduces brake pressure to that wheel. This prevents the wheels
from locking during heavy or emergency braking, enabling the
vehicle to remain steerable.
Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR)
ASR improves driving and steering characteristics by
preventing the front wheels from spinning under acceleration.
When a difference in driving wheel speed is detected (i.e. when
one wheel starts to spin due to differences in road surfaces, e.g.
due to water or dirt) the system automatically reduces engine
torque. ASR is a switchable traction control system.
Brake Assist
During emergency braking, Brake Assist aids the driver
by increasing the brake pressure automatically to a level
exceeding the locking limit. The ABS is thus quickly brought
into the operating range, which enables maximum vehicle
deceleration to be achieved.
Electronic Brake-pressure Distribution (EBD)
Electronic, more sophisticated means of regulating the ratio
of front/rear brake pressure. Settings are varied according to
driving and load conditions to ensure each wheel is braked to
the optimum extent.
Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG)
DSG is a manual gearbox in which the gearshifts are
controlled electronically. What makes the DSG unique is that it
has 2 separate gear sets operated by 2 wet multi-plate clutches.
The benefit of 2 gear sets and 2 multi-plate wet clutches is that
one gear set and clutch is engaged driving the vehicle with the
second clutch having already pre-selected the next gear awaiting
for power to be transferred. As the next gear has already been
pre-selected prior to power being applied, the gear change only
takes 3-4 100ths of a second. There is virtually no interruption to
power, traction or acceleration. The DSG also offers Tiptronic gear
selection and sports mode.
Electronic Stabilisation Program (ESP)
ABS and ASR traction control systems are integrated into the
Electronic Stabilisation Program (ESP). In short, ESP helps ensure
that the vehicle goes where you steer it even in extreme driving
conditions. The ESP system constantly compares the actual
movement of the vehicle with pre-determined values and should
a situation arise where the vehicle starts to skid, ESP will apply
the brakes to individual wheels and automatically adjust the
engine’s power output to correct the problem. ESP prevents the
vehicle from losing control when trying to avoid an accident, for
example. It also prevents spinning off on a curve due to either
understeer or oversteer.
