Volkswagen has released new details on its upcoming Golf Wagon this week, ahead of its launch in European markets.

Known overseas as either the Estate or Variant, the Golf Wagon has evolved into the seventh generation range with a new cohesive look that does away with the old model's odd rear-end styling.

The new Wagon gets essentially the same tail-lights seen on hatch models as well as picking up the hatch's strong C-pillar design. All of this adds up to a look you'd expect: a stretched Golf.

As with the hatch, the Golf Wagon is lighter than its predecessor, shedding around 105kg, while its petrol and diesel engines are up to 15 percent more-efficient than before.

Rear storage has grown 100 litres to offer a sizeable 605 litres to the height of the rear seats, while loading to the roof boosts capacity to 1620 litres - up from 1495 in the old model.

The Golf Wagon gets the same XDS+ electronic differential lock offered with the hatch, along with the choice of Dynamic Chassis Control (lowering height by 10mm) or a sports suspension pack (lower by 15mm).

Engine options mirror those offered with the hatch, which in Australia includes a pair of 90kW and 103kW turbo 1.4 litre petrol four-cylinder engines, and a 110kW 2.0 litre diesel.

Transmissions include six- and seven-speed DSG autos, along with five- and six-speed manuals. Volkswagen's 4Motion all-wheel-drive is also available with some models. (Australian details still to be confirmed.)

 

Australia

The new Golf Wagon is scheduled to hit Australia early in 2014, with local specifications and pricing to be confirmed closer to launch.
