The success story of the model began in 2002 with the Golf R32 and its 3.2 liter six-cylinder engine with an output of 177 kW (241 hp). It was the most powerful Golf that Volkswagen had built up to that point. With all-wheel drive combined with exclusive design and equipment, this highly dynamic car was the technological benchmark in its class. The Golf R32 was an instant hit, and its sales were three times higher than originally projected.
