Although the engine and transmission are impressive, there are features that help to enhance the performance of the 2019 Volkswagen Golf R. The drivetrain is a 4MOTION® all-wheel-drive system. This system transfers torque between the front and rear wheels. Unless driving conditions demand more power, power is delivered to the front wheels. When it senses that more traction is needed, the system will send power to the rear wheels.

DCC® adaptive chassis control chooses between three suspension settings to control the damper valves with an algorithm. It does this by receiving input signals from wheel sensors and acceleration sensors. After it will adjust the damping force and then apply force to the wheels individually. Driving Mode Selection comes with different drive modes to adjust how the Golf R responds to driving conditions. There are five drive modes: ECO, Comfort, Normal, Race and Custom.
