Golf Estate 1 600x369 at New VW Golf Estate Launches In The UK

The new version of the VW Golf Estate, based on the Mk7 generation Golf, will soon hit the UK showrooms,, starting at £17,915. Available in S, SE and GT trim levels, the Estate delivers the same level of value and driving characteristics as the ultra-popular Golf Hatchback, but with much greater practicality.

 

The new car offers a 605 litres boot with the rear seats up, expandable to 1,620 litres with them folded – which can be done remotely via a button in the boot. The loadspace is 1,831 mm long and a minimum of 1,003 mm wide, and has a payload capacity of 600 kg. What’s more, Golf Estate comes with roof rails (black on S and SE, anodised silver on GT), and it can two a 1,600 kg trailer.

The engine lineup includes four petrol and three diesels. The petrol family includes a 1.2-litre TSI 85 PS with five-speed manual gearbox, plus a 1.2-litre TSI 105 PS, a 1.4-litre TSI 122 PS and a 1.4-litre TSI ACT 140 PS with cylinder deactivation, all with either six-speed manual or seven-speed DSG gearboxes.

As for the diesels, you ca choose between a 1.6-litre TDI 90 PS with five-speed manual gearbox, a 1.6-litre TDI 105 PS with five-speed manual or seven-speed DSG gearbox and a 2.0-litre TDI 150 PS with either six-speed manual or six-speed DSG gearbox.
