Volkswagen Golf Mk5
This topic covers all performance variants and body types of the Mk5, including hatchbacks and estate.
This model has been represented in Forza games as the
2006 Volkwsagen Golf GTi (FM2 to FM4)
The Golf GTI features a 2.0 litre turbocharged inline 4-cylinder petrol engine with Fuel Stratified Injection (FSI) direct-injection technology, which produces 200PS (147 kW/197 bhp). It is available in both 3-door and 5-door hatchback body shapes, and comes with a choice of either 6-speed manual or a 6-speed Direct-Shift Gearbox (DSG) which greatly reduces shift time to only 8ms.
Some Mk 5 GTIs bound for the North American Market produced in late 2008 and early 2009 came with a different engine...
Would love to have the R32 version in the game even if it was an engine swap and body kit on the GTi version
+1 on the R32, a certain famous Forza YouTuber has one if you need a celebrity ownership segment in the stream.
R32 is a MUST for Mk5 ! But GTI is also good!
This car is LONG overdue to be featured in Forza!
I’d love to see the GTI and R32 in 5-door versions
Golf 5 R32 is amazing, it would be nice to see it in FH5…
I’ve got an even better idea: a Mk5 GTi with a Mk5 R32 unlockable through car perks
They already did that with ie. the Lambo Diablo, with the SV being in the autoshow and the GTR in SV’s perks
Besides the R32, there should also be the bodykit for the GTI edition 30, it’s pretty simple and wouldn’t be hard to add
Have been wanting this car in the game for a bit… it just makes sense to. They have every other VW except this one… plus its my daily and making my own car in the game would be awesome
2006 Golf R32
The Mk5 Golf has an R32 just like the Mk4, but slightly more powerful than the previous one.
It still has the same 3.2 VR6 and 6-speed Manual. It produces 247HP, while the Mk4 produces 238HP. They’d want a better VW Golf for sportiness & performance.
As the Mk5 R32 didn’t feature itself yet in Forza games, maybe NOW is the chance for it to join!!!
And also, I am including the 2006 Golf GTI, which needs a full rescan from the ground up that it’s a good idea not to bring a deformed car back to a new game. That’s why it disappeared in Forza’s Xbox One era and definitely needs a very accurate return.
100% we need this car WITH DSG. Yes Manual is great but DSG would be cooler.
Manual is the very best so far. I don’t request for DSG.
No matter what gearbox is used for the stock OEM tune, you can always install a race transmission and tune the gear ratios for the manual or DSG transmission. I’ve been doing that for a lot of cars lately
Bring back the MkV Golf from Forza Motorsport 4!
I forgot it was in FM4. Just goes to show what a great game it was. Why not port the car to current gen games?
The Golf Mk5 With the 2.0 TDi
would be fun
Maybe as engine option
Yeah, the 2.0 TDI GT Sport (170hp) would be cool to have.
Can t understand how forza can add all WV golf on Horizon 5 and MK5 is missing
