Orders to open for Golf estate

The new Volkswagen Golf estate opens for ordering tomorrow (July 2), with prices starting at £17,915 on the road.

Priced at £765 more than the equivalent five-door Golf hatchback the Golf estate is available in S, SE and GT equipment grades, with the same standard features.

The Golf estate’s loadspace volume has been expanded from the 505 litres of its predecessor to 605 litres (loaded up to the back seat backrest), and 1,620 litres with the rear seats folded and measured up to roof height - 125 litres greater than the maximum volume of the previous Golf estate.

All models include Bluetooth, DAB digital radio with 5.8-inch colour touchscreen, iPod connector, seven airbags, XDS electronic differential and an automatic post-collision braking system.

SE models gain ADC automatic distance control with Front Assist and City Emergency Braking, 16-inch alloy wheels, rear map-reading lights, automatic lights and wipers, a Driver Alert System, driver profile selection, and the pre-crash preventive occupant protection system.

GT adds 17-inch alloy wheels, sports suspension, 65 per cent tinted rear windows, Discover navigation system, electrically folding door mirrors and parking sensors, among other items. All UK Golf Estates (except BlueMotion) will come with a standard space-saver spare tyre.
