The front motor shouldn't really affect the turning radius as the motor wouldn't change the maximum angle the front wheels can turn.

I read somewhere on a VW site that the turning radius of the AWD version will be about 1.5ft larger in diameter than the RWD version due to the front wheel drive. CV joints can only handle so much of a turning angle.

That's why FWD cars tend to have larger turning radii. But, I seem to recall that the Golf had a relatively small turning radius. I know the Asian brands FWD versions suffer from this. Perhaps VW has CV's that perform better?

My 2016 VW GTI, which is FWD, has a turning radius of 17.9 ft compared the RWD ID.4's 16.75 ft. Adding the additional 1.5 ft ixlr08 mentioned for AWD, you would get a 18.25 ft turning radius, which is only slightly more than my GTI's. The GTI's turning radius seems perfectly fine to me.
