R has a choice of manual transmission available, for those who love exciting I have to retire to the GTI model. After gearbox, the pair of party and divided between the four wheels through the 4Motion all-wheel-drive system. This configuration uses a Haldex differential Center electronically controlled to send up to 50 percent of the available torque to the rear axle on request. R is also capable of power of binary vector laterally across the United States each, thanks to brake system + XDS differential.
