Like the hatchback, the Golf Estate will feature Bluemotion technology, which comprises of a stop-start system and battery regeneration, for fuel economy of 72.4mpg in the 1.6-litre TDI models. For the first time the Golf Estate will also be available as a full Bluemotion model, likely to include aerodynamic tweaks, for economy of more than 80mpg.
