The new Volkswagen Golf Estate and the Golf Alltrack have received a world premiere.
This is the new Volkswagen Golf Estate, which the carmaker says has more space and is more practical than ever before.
The standard features include a new mild-hybrid offering, and there's more digital equipment too.
The new Volkswagen Golf Alltrack with all-wheel-drive has also been revealed. Both make for excellent Volkswagen car leasing choices.
VW says the Alltrack is a crossover between an SUV and the Golf Estate to deliver innovation, space and even fun.
The all-wheel-drive system should deliver off-roading adventures too.
That's down to the Alltrack's higher ground clearance than the Estate. It also has specific bumpers, underbody protection and a customised interior.
The Volkswagen Golf Estate first appeared in 1993 and since then has racked up more than 3 million sales.
The advanced cockpit joins the spacious interior to deliver what is a great family car.
The exterior has been redesigned and is more dynamic and looks similar to the latest Golf.
Indeed, the new Estate has a coupe-like silhouette, and it also has a slightly larger wheelbase to create the extra space in the cabin.
There's a new eTSI offering with 48V technology which is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox as part of the new mild-hybrid's drive system.
Along with offering lower fuel consumption, the new Golf Estate will switch off its direct-injection turbocharged petrol engine whenever it is possible to do so and coast without generating emissions.
New equipment for the Volkswagen Golf Estate includes lane assist departure warning, pedestrian monitoring, front assist with city braking and the Estate benefits with an electronic differential lock.
There's also a traffic hazard alert, as well as keyless entry.
The Digital Cockpit Pro offers an 8.25-inch touchscreen and the We Connect Plus online services - as well as a multifunction steering wheel.
More details and prices for the new Volkswagen Golf Estate and Alltrack will be revealed in the near future.
Green Cars’ is the term used for zero, low and ultra-low emission vehicles (ULEVs) - with pressure being applied to lower global emission levels, the need for “eco-friendly” vehicles is on the rise. Many countries now have plans in place to abolish the use of combustion engines before the turn of the century and so more and more vehicles we see on the roads will be Electric, hybrid or very low emission petrol and diesels.
Although beneficial to the environment, ‘Green Cars’ are also beneficial from a taxation view. The lower a vehicle’s emissions banding, the lower the taxation placed against it. Many manufacturers have tapped in to this ever-growing market with their own offerings, however, Volvo were the first manufacturer to state that every one of their models will be either electric or hybrid options from 2019.
