Introducing the new-look Golf Estate, with numerous individualisation options you really can create your very own personal Golf Estate.
For years estate cars have proven the ultimate choice for those wanting additional practicality, and while SUVs might be increasingly popular these days, a traditional estate is still a brilliant tool. And manufacturers clearly agree – especially Volkswagen – who has recently introduced a more spacious version of its new eight-generation Golf hatchback?
Let’s take a look at what the new Volkswagen Golf Estate has to offer.
Undoubtedly one of the biggest changes for the new Golf is its interior, which is rather different from that of its predecessor. Volkswagen has just about digitised the full thing – from the digital dials to the touchscreen to the absence of physical buttons, which have been replaced by sliders or voice-controlled functions. The reassuring quality and high-quality feel expected from a Golf remains, though.
But Volkswagen hasn’t forgotten about the need for spaciousness, with the new Golf Estate being even more spacious than its predecessor. Boot space has increased to an impressive 611 litres, or a huge 1,652 with the rear seats folded. Volkswagen has also improved rear space as well, helped by a wheelbase that’s 48mm longer than before. It means five adults should be able to travel in comfort.
With greater dimensions and an extended wheelbase, estate cars can often look sleeker than the cars they’re based on, and that could be true with the Volkswagen Golf. The striking and angular front end certainly suits the new Golf Estate, while intricate LED lighting at the front and rear add to the visual appeal.
There’s also a new R-Line estate – something previously just offered on the hatchback. It brings a black styling kit and a sportier bodykit. In due course, a hot ‘R’ version will also be introduced, bringing with it far more performance, as well as style.
Volkswagen has made technology a talking point on the latest eighth-generation Golf, and the Estate benefits from all the modern touches already seen on the hatchback. From the 10-inch touchscreen to the digital dial system of the same size (both fitted as standard), it’s a showcase for the brand’s latest tech.
It’s also fitted with a system known as ‘Car2X traffic hazard alert’, which essentially means the car can ‘communicate’ with other vehicles – alerting you to any hazards on the road, even well before you’d ordinarily be able to see them. It’s features like this that have already earnt the regular Golf a five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP.
Expect the Golf Estate to be available with a wide choice of petrol and diesel engines, which are largely set to mirror those of the hatchback.
The entry-level engine option will be a turbocharged 1.0-litre petrol producing 108bhp, as well as a 148bhp 1.5-litre petrol. These will be available with a manual gearbox or an automatic transmission. Choose the latter and it will come with ‘eTSI’ mild-hybrid technology, which enhances efficiency and responsiveness.
As for diesels, Volkswagen will offer a 2.0-litre option with either 113bhp or 148bhp, with an automatic gearbox coming with the more powerful engine.
Standard equipment on the Golf Estate includes 16-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, a leather steering wheel and the aforementioned large touchscreen and digital dial system. It also comes with a variety of safety kit, including adaptive cruise control, traffic sign detection, front and rear parking sensors and autonomous emergency braking.
Style brings larger 17-inch alloy wheels, 30-colour ambient lighting and electrically folding mirrors. The LED headlights are also upgraded, while additional driver assistance equipment is provided in the form of high beam assist and side assist.
Sporty R-Line models bring more aggressive styling, along with a heated steering wheel, sports suspension and configurable driving modes.
This trim allows you to embrace adventure. With larger 17" 'Ronda' Alloy wheels and Driving profile selection you're ready to hit the road.
