It’s the most spacious and efficient Golf Estate ever, and weighs up to 105kg less than the car it replaces thanks to its lightweight new MQB platform.
The boot offers 100 litres more space than before, at 605 litres, and with the rear seats folded this increases to 1,620 litres – that’s 125 litres more than before.
The latest BlueMotion Estate promises 85.6mpg economy and 87g/km emissions from its 1.6-litre TDI diesel. Other engine options will include a 2.0 TDI, as well as 1.2 and 1.4 TSI petrols.
Prices will be revealed closer to the car’s UK launch in July.
