The 2022 Volkswagen Golf: More Fun, More Features, More to Love

The Volkswagen Golf is synonymous with the idea of a fun-to-drive compact hatchback. The 2022 Volkswagen Golf continues this tradition, with a combination of performance and handling that makes driving one an experience that no other vehicle of its type can match. We're excited to bring you the 2022 Golf at Volkswagen of Palatine, IL, conveniently located just seven minutes from Arlington Heights.


The 2022 Golf features a turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that generates 241 horsepower and 275-pound-feet of torque in the base Golf GTI model. The Golf R trim can generate 315 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. This is a car that packs a serious punch on the road, and you will have a blast driving it, especially whether you opt for the six-speed manual transmission or the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. Both powertrain options also feature multiple drive modes, including Comfort, Sport, Eco, and customizable Individual settings. The Golf R trim even includes a Drift mode for drivers who want to take it out on some serious fun on a driving track. Adaptive dampers let you choose how soft the ride to be, giving you enormous control over the feel of every single drive.


The 2022 Golf is also designed with superior handling in mind. The Golf R's upgraded 4Motion system now shifts powers between the front and rear axles, as well as the left and right rear wheels. This upgrade allows the vehicle to direct 100 percent of available power to the wheel on the outer edge of a corner, reducing understeer and improving agility. The 2022 Golf also introduces the Vehicle Dynamics Manager, which tracks every corner turn the vehicle makes and makes adjustments as necessary. The Vehicle Dynamics Manager links the vehicle's all-wheel-drive system, electronic differentials, suspension, transmission, steering, and brakes, making rapid calculations along the way, allowing it to sense when the car enters an oversteer or understeer. The Golf R can then automatically allocate the precise amount of power to individual wheels needed to improve response. Whether you take this car out for weekend pleasure driving around Palatine or weekday errands in Des Plaines, every drive will be fun.

Interior and Features

The 2022 Golf features two large displays up front: a 10.2-inch gauge cluster, and a 10-inch touchscreen. The three-spoke steering wheel includes touch-sensitive controls and a contoured rim. There is ample ambient lighting throughout the cabin with 30 available colors, making it easy to set the mood you want. The front seats feature red accent trim on the Golf GTI and blue accent trim on the Golf R. Both trims offer tremendously comfortable seats. The Golf GTI's sport seats are spacious and cozy, while the Golf R's leather-trimmed bucket seats feel luxurious.

The 2022 Golf features Apple CarPlay®, Android™ Auto, and a Wi-Fi hotspot, making it easier than ever to stay connected on the road. There are plenty of charging ports for easy device recharging.
