Volkswagen Golf VII Variant Spied (UPDATED)

UPDATE! After careful comparison with the new seventh-generation Golf we are now sure that the heavily disguised prototype here is the new Golf Variant not the next-generation Volkswagen Passat Variant as we suspected at first.

Thanks everyone for pointing it out!

The new Golf Variant is expected to arrive in early 2013 with the same engine range found in the standard model. All engines come with a Stop/Start system as standard, along with battery regeneration. Depending on the engine, gearboxes include five- and six-speed manuals, and six- and seven-speed DSG units.

    It is not the Passat Variant, it is the Golf Variant. Volkswagen never presents first the SW version before the sedan. The rear is very bigger but the wheelbase and it looks like the new Passat Variant, but is the same than he wheelbase from new Golf.

    And the new Volkswagen Passat won’t arrive to the market until 2014
