Volkswagen decided to offer Golf VII buyers the option of all wheel drive with their new Golf alleviating the cause of concern many have with front wheel drive. This also openis up the Golf to more markets especially those with rougher Winters. This is a Haldex based 5th generation all wheel drive system. The Golf VII has yet to be made available for sale in the United States but when it does later this year buyers will be able to get it with the option right off the bat.

Expect the 4Motion option to add something in the $2,000 range to the base price of the Golf VII. It will also be compatible with all the available transmission options. The new Golf just got more exciting.
