I cannot speak to that, but I have driven in very heavy flooded roads with both and the Haldex held up well.
Like I said Snow, the older Haldex may have been very bad and sloppy, but the gen IV is really pretty darn good.
I'm sure it works fine. I have family with an Acura MDX and SHAWD is basically Haldex4 and they don't get stuck, but it's a lot heavier and taller (and they aren't trying to get it stuck).
I actually like the Golf R and hope Subaru offers a 3door to compete directly.
