From 1997 to 2003, more than 4,3 millions copies of the Golf 4 has been sold. This version is characterized by the pooling of the motorizations, gearboxes and frame solutions inside the Volkswagen Group (Audi, Seat and Skoda shared with VW). We particularly retain the excellent 1,8l Turbo 20 valves (150hp) and the abundant TDI in 90, 110 and 130hp. The success of the Golf 4 was already assured by the good reputation of its precursors. The Golf 4 was in fact just a restyled Golf 3 cabriolet ; the second design was so inspired by the front part of the Golf 4 that the shape is not evident ! The career of this fourth generation was marked by the 25th anniversary of the model Golf, and then by the Golf GTI one. At the top of this fourth generation of the Golf, we find the successor of the VR6, hte Golf R32 (3.2l) and its 241 then 250hp. Equipped with an all-wheel drive, it is on this ultra sporting model that the Volkswagen double-clutch automatic transmission was break in, the famous DSG gearbox.
