Volkswagen have just announced that they are introducing a new Golf to the ?worldwide market?. According to VW the new Golf Variant (Wagon) is ?as spacious as it is variable? So it?s either a bit patchy in places or the press release lost a little in the translation from German?

The Golf Variant will arrive on the door-steps of German dealers on the 1st of June this year and will progressively be introduced to most VW markets around the world thereafter. There is no official word on whether Australia will get to see the Golf Variant but it would make a sensible addition to the VW Australia?s product range.

The entry level engine option for the Variant is a 1.6-liter four cylinder that produces a rather unexciting 75 kW. A better option would be one of the twin-charged TSI engines that combine the latest turbo-charger and super-charger technology. The TSI engines produce high-torque and deliver 103 kW and 125 kW respectively.


Alternatively there are two diesel TDI engine options both of which include the latest diesel particulate filters and produce 77 kW and 103 kW. The DSG dual clutch transmission is optional on all engines with the exception of the base model1.6-litre petrol engine.

The real advantage of the Golf Variant over the standard Golf hatchback is of course the added cargo area. Cargo carrying capacity is 1550 litres with the back seats down or 560 litres when the Variant is being used as a 5-seater.

The Golf Variant will be offered with three different levels of equipment. The Trendline will be the base model but will still include ESP, 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 Comfortline will be the mid-range model with the Sportline topping the range and including as standard a new two-piece glass panoramic sunroof that measures 1.36 metres by 0.87 metres. The panoramic sunroof will be available on the lesser models as an option.
