With far more than 2 million units sold, the Golf Variant is one of the most successful compact estate cars. The latest generation, based on the seventh-generation Golf, has evolved into a stylish all-rounder appealing to a number of different target groups. The car is powered by efficient petrol, diesel and natural gas engines. At 2,620 mm, the Golf Variant has the same wheelbase as the two-door and four-door Golf. However, the rear of the Golf Variant is 309 mm longer, taking the overall length to 4,567 mm. This additional length boosts the cargo capacity available to between 605 and 1620 liters. Up to the rear seats, the cargo space is 1,831 mm long. Practical options available include a luggage net and a 230 V power socket for the cargo area.
