New range includes 1.6-litre common rail TDI
21 May 2009

Volkswagen has unveiled an estate version of the new Golf, which has the option of two diesel and four petrol units.

New to the estate’s engine line-up is a 101bhp 1.6-litre commonrail TDI, which VW says is both quiet and has low emissions (119 g/km CO2) and joins a 2.0-litre TDI. There are also four petrol engines ranging from 77bhp to 156bhp.

Two new driver assistance systems are available as options for the first time on the estate: "Park Assist" (automatic parking assistant) and "Rear Assist" (rear-view camera).

Visually the estate gets the new MK6 Golf nose and at the rear the look has been freshened up with new tail lights and body-coloured bumpers.

Inside there are new instruments and the latest three-spoke steering wheel, as debuted on the Passat CC.

Deliveries of the new Golf estate will start early next year in the UK, with prices starting at around £15,000.
