New Volkswagen Golf Estate priced from £17,915

New Volkswagen Golf is available to order from tomorrow (2 July) with prices starting at £17,915 – that’s £765 more than the similarly equipped Golf hatchback.

Just as the hatchback, the Golf Estate is available in S, SE and GT trim levels.

Compared to the outgoing model, the Golf Estate’s loadspace volume has been expanded from the 505 litres to 605 litres. The new Golf hatch loadspace is 380 litres. When loaded loaded up to the front seat backrests and under the roof, the cargo volume is an impressive 1,620 litres (1,495 litres outgoing model).

For more comfort and ease of use, the rear-seat backrests can be folded remotely via a release in the boot. Payload capacity is between 600-611 kg (depending on engine).

For even more cargo space all Golf Estates come with roof rails, while the towing capacity is up to 1,600 kg for a braked trailer.

From launch four petrol engines are available: a 1.2-litre TSI with 85bhp with five-speed manual gearbox, a 1.2-litre TSI with 105bhp, a 1.4-litre TSI with 120bhp and a 138bhp 1.4-litre TSI ACT with cylinder deactivation, all with either six-speed manual or seven-speed DSG gearboxes.

Three diesels include a 1.6-litre TDI with 90bhp with five-speed manual gearbox, a 1.6-litre TDI with 104bhp with five-speed manual or seven-speed DSG gearbox and a 2.0-litre TDI 148bhp with either six-speed manual or six-speed DSG gearbox.
