With a cargo area capacity of up to 1,550 liters the station wagon is sure to please. Volkswagen is offering the new Golf Variant in the equipment lines Trendline, Comfortline and Sportline.
However, being a German car, even the base model Trendline comes with
- six airbags,
- 16-inch wheels,
- power windows front and rear,
- central locking with remote keyless entry,
- tilt-up cargo floor and asymmetrically split folding rear bench seat with armrests.
The higher end model Sportline comes with a newly designed, two-piece glass panorama sunroof with a length of 1.36 meters and width of 0.87 meters. Not bad for a golf!
Engine specifications run from a rather underpowered 75 kW to a more respectable 125 kW. With a choice of two diesel and three gasoline engines (German market - Australian details not confirmed), including four direct injection engines.
The base model engine is a 1.6-liter four cylinder that outputs 75 kW. Above that you get a choice of twincharged TSI engines (same engine as the new Golf GT). You will get 103 kW to 125 kW from the two variants. Moving on to the diesel engines, two strong TDIs of the Golf Variant at 77 kW and 103 kW are available.
There is also the choice of the revolutionary DSG dual clutch transmission as an option on all engines with the exception of the base model 1.6-liter petrol engine.
