New VW Golf Plus revealed

Volkswagen Golf Sportsvan concept revealed, which shows how the next Golf Plus will look

This is the VW Golf Sportsvan, which will be joining the Golf R and electric e-Golf on Volkswagen’s Frankfurt motor show stand.

The concept is a near-production-ready version of the next-generation VW Golf Plus, based on the same MQB platform as the standard hatch but with a larger cabin. It’s shorter overall than the Golf and Golf Estate, yet has a 50mm longer wheelbase and higher roofline to boost leg and headroom in the rear.

Boot space stands at 498 litres, but this can be increased to 585 litres by sliding the rear bench forward 180mm. That’s 66 litres more than in the old Plus, although slightly down on the Estate’s 605 litres.

The next-generation Plus will have the same line-up of engines as the hatch. That includes petrol turbos ranging from 84bhp to 148bhp, plus 109bhp and 148bhp turbodiesels. There’ll also be an efficient 1.6-litre TDI BlueMotion, promising 76.3mpg economy and 95g/km of CO2 emissions.
