Volkswagen Australia has released its new Golf Wagon locally. It is the first Golf Wagon to utilise the technologies and benefits of the innovative modular transverse matrix (MQB).

This means: reduced weight (up to 165 kg lighter), optimised package (100 litres more cargo space), sharper body proportions, new safety and convenience systems, new petrol and diesel engines and new running gear technologies.

Now made in Mosel, Germany, the VW Golf wagon is a car for active lifestyles. With a new entry price the Golf Wagon is now even more affordable to own.

Each model line of the seventh generation Golf hatch (non-performance versions) has been replicated for the Golf Wagon. This includes the new entry model wagon in the 90 TSI, the now mid-range 90 TSI Comfortline and the introduction of the Highline grade with 103 TSI and 110 TDI variants. All Volkswagen Golf wagons are coupled to a DSG transmission and achieve low fuel consumption (from 4.7 l/100km in the 110 TDI Highline).

The exterior styling of the Volkswagen Golf wagon has been transformed, resulting in a car which is 4,657 mm long (26 mm longer that the Mk VI), and 1,799 mm wide (18 mm wider), giving it a sportier and more distinctive look than the previous model. These proportions set the stage for the design of the wagon, which follows the lines of the Golf hatchback until the B pillars, with uniquely Golf Wagon styling from the rear doors towards the back.

Importantly for wagon buyers the new Golf wagon also has 100 litres more cargo space than its predecessor. Cargo capacity, which was increased from 505 to 605 litres (loaded up to the backrest of the rear seat), offers ample luggage space even with five passengers on board.

When loaded to the backs of the front seats and up to the ceiling, cargo capacity grows to 1,620 litres (previous model: 1,495 litres).

All models in the new Golf wagon range have the same standard features and options as the Golf 7 hatch.

Standard features on the 90 TSI Golf Wagon include 5.8-inch Composition Media display, multi-collision braking system, electronic parking brake with Auto-Hold function, XDL transverse differential lock, battery regeneration mode and Stop/Start system, cruise control and Bluetooth connectivity and USB interface.

In addition to the 90 TSI base model, the Comfortline offers an array of standard features, including a rear-view camera, front and rear parking sensors, rain sensing windscreen wipers, auto dimming rear-view mirror and automatic headlights, plus dual-zone climate control air conditioning.

For the first time in the Golf Wagon range the premium Highline grade is offered. In conjunction with a 103 kW TSI or 110 kW TDI engine, the Highline wagon is comprehensively equipped with luxurious Alcantara and cloth trim, 17-inch alloy wheels and Discover Media Satellite Navigation.

A wide range of optional features is also available for the Golf Wagon. This includes the Driver Assistance Package, with its impressive safety and convenience systems Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Front Assist with City Emergency Brake, Proactive Occupant Protection System, Park Assist 2 and Driving Profile Selection.
