New Volkswagen Golf Estate Debuts in Geneva

The all-new Volkswagen Golf Estate is up to 105 kg lighter than its predecessor, boot volume has been expanded from 505 litres to 605 litres and with the seats down is no less than 1,620 litres versus the 1,495 litres of the Golf Estate Mk VI.

Compared to the hatchback version, the Golf Estate is 307 mm longer with a length of 4,562 mm. Visually, the ‘third’ side window forms a part of the D-pillar, with the result that the new Golf Estate appears sportier than its predecessors.

For the first time the new golf Estate will also be available as a full BlueMotion model with a 108bhp 1.6-litre diesel engine linked to a six-speed manual, delivering a combined fuel consumption of just 85.6 mpg and CO2 emissions of 87 g/km.

The petrol engine line-up includes a 103bhp 1.2-litre TSI, 120bhp 1.4-litre TSI and a 137bhp 1.4-litre TSI ACT engine with cylinder deactivation. Two other diesel engines besides the BlueMotion model available are: 103bhp 1.6litre TDI and a 147bhp 2.0-litre TDI.

An all-wheel Golf Estate 4MOTION is also on display in Geneva, but there are no plans to sell this model in the UK.

Prices will be announced closer to market launch in July, with first deliveries in October.
