Fans of the German universalists can rejoice: the rumors that the eighth generation of VW Golf will lose the station wagon, proved to be just rumors. Photospies the first time managed to obtain tangible proof that the new Golf Variant (or, as it is called, SportWagon) will be born.
However, to make some far-reaching conclusions about appearance colleagues Skoda Octavia Combi and the SEAT Leon while unlikely to succeed. The rear part of the prototype supplied talsaclidine, distorting its shape: even the lights were decorated with stickers that mimic the optics of the previous generation. However, it is clearly seen that the wagon due to the radically “overwhelmed” C-pillar and the roof line will get a much more dynamic silhouette.
We can also assume that the novelty will be slightly roomier than predecessor. Previous Golf Variant had a length of 4.56 m, and in his trunk was placed from 1 605 to 620 liters of Luggage.
It should be noted that while it is not known whether Volkswagen in further experiments with this type of body. For example, is open to question “all terrain” Golf variant Alltrack, there is no data on the possibility of issuing the “charged” version with the engine from the Golf R. it is Not excluded that the missing details we learn only in the autumn, when presumably VW will release “universal” VW Golf. But until then, there will be another two domestic premieres in the coming weeks VW is going to present as a “track” Golf GTI TCR and the flagship all-wheel-drive Golf R with a 333-horsepower engine.
