The Volkswagen Golf Estate has all the features of its superb hatchback sibling and adds even more passenger and luggage space. Available in three and five-door body styles, this accomplished family car is also very affordable to run.
Smart-looking as well as practical, the Golf Estate’s exterior features include a tailgate-integrated spoiler and black roof rails. Also present are body-coloured bumpers, door handles and electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors, the latter with integrated indicator lights. Further illumination comprises range-adjustable headlights, daytime running lights and an additional high-mounted brake light. Lightweight 15-inch alloy wheels are available as an option with entry-level S trim levels, while 16-inch alloys are standard with SE and Match Edition grades.
A roomy five-person cabin enables front-row occupants to make themselves comfortable with height-adjustable seats. The driver also benefits from a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel. Additional standard features include an auto-hold electronic parking brake, power-operated windows, air conditioning, dust and pollen filtering and a heated rear windscreen. Split-folding 60/40 rear seats enable an already large 605-litre cargo space to be expanded to a cavernous 1,620 litres.
S grades come with a 1.4-litre 92kW engine fitted as standard. Mated to a six-speed manual gearbox, this produces 0-100km/h in a little more than ten seconds, up to 5.3 l/100km and a 123g/km CO2 emissions figure. The most fuel-efficient option – also available for S trims – is a 1.6-litre 66kW diesel unit. Paired with five-speed manual transmission, this returns as much as 4.0 l/100km and CO2 emissions as low as 103g/km. All engines come with start/stop system and brake energy recovery as standard.
The Golf Estate’s infotainment array includes an eight-speaker sound system (with a CD player and DAB radio), Bluetooth connectivity and a range of media inputs. Awarded a five-star rating by Euro NCAP, the vehicle’s wide range of safety features include Anti-lock Braking System, Electronic Stability Control, childproof locks, ISOFIX anchor points and three-point seatbelts.The car is also fitted with an electronic engine immobiliser.
