Welcome to the first in a new series of videos to answer the question: will she drift?
We have four hot 4WD sedans – the new 2021 Volkswagen Golf R, the latest Mercedes-AMG A45, the Toyota GR Yaris and a Ford Focus RS Mk3. And we take them all in a low grip skidpan to answer this most vital question. Will they go aside?
Then we also have a two-wheel drive hatchback that isn’t exactly conventional. The Renault Clio V6.
First of all, in this video, the new Volkswagen Golf R. It has an awesome four-wheel drive system with two clutches on its rear axle that can torque vector to give one wheel or another as much or as little power. couple as possible. But, given that it is never more than 50% backward biased, will that be enough on this very weak and very slow Pan Thruxton skid?
This series complements Autocar’s written feature on torque vectoring, which includes full technical details and interviews with the engineers behind these cars. We’ll update this description when it goes live – but for now, remember that you can pick up the magazine from any good newsagents and through a digital subscription.
