The new generation Golf, the Golf 7 series, has arrived with a lot of praise and there is no hesitation in expanding the models and variants available here in Australia. Volkswagen Australia have announced that they will be adding the new Golf Wagon to the family.
Weighing up to 165kg’s than the previous Wagon, and bringing more than 100 litres more of cargo space the Golf Wagon seems to be fuelling the fire that is the small car crusade against larger cars; especially with its reduced entry level pricing.
Starting from $25,540 for the entry Golf 90 TSI with 7 Speed DSG and 90kW of power/200Nm of torque, brings some serious competition against non-European manufacturers. Boasting all of the new technologies and benefits from the Golf Hatch, you might just be compelled to steer away that Mazda 3, Holden Cruze or Ford Focus.
The Golf Wagon will be exclusively produced in Mosel, Germany; hopefully bringing superior build quality, even for an entry level vehicle.
Moving through the range, starting from $29,290 is the Golf 90 TSI Comfortline with 7 Speed DSG, the Golf 103 TSI Highline with 7 Speed DSG and 103kW of power/250Nm of torque starts from $33,840, and finally the Golf 110 TDI Highline with 6 Speed DSG is powered by a 110kW turbo diesel engine with 320Nm of torque.
Fuel economy wise works in the reverse with 4.9L/100km for the Golf 110 TDI Highline and working up to the 90TSI achieving 5.7L/100km.
Standard across the range is a 5.8inch display, multi-collision braking system, electronic parking brake with Auto-Hold, Start/Stop system, cruise control and Bluetooth connectivity.
In the Highline specifications, you’ll also pick up some nice Alcantara and cloth trim, bigger 17inch alloy wheels and Sat Nav.
For those wanting some more features you can also opt for the Driver Assistance Package adding Adaptive Cruise Control, Front Assist with City Emergency Brake, Proactive Occupant Protection System, Park Assist 2 and Driving Profile Selection.
