The new Golf Variant

Equipment & Design Every Volkswagen is characterised by high-quality equipment and clear design vocabulary. The new Golf Variant is a perfect example.

Exterior

The Golf Variant has a dynamic, elegant design language and a wealth of high-quality details. Its LED daytime running lights and turn signals which are integrated into LED headlights will immediately catch your eye, as does the bumper, which matches the colour of the car. Further highlights include the radiator grille and air intake grille, both in classic black. 

The tail is equally impressive: from the boot lid with its integrated spoiler and the two-section bumper cover with divided LED tail lights to the integrated reflectors and black-grained diffuser. The stylish design is rounded off with a striking roof railing. 

Interior

Space meets comfort, quality, and new technologies. The interior of the Golf Variant invites you to sit down immediately and not get up again until you absolutely have to. This is thanks mainly to the generous proportions, which offer both front and rear occupants plenty of leg room. The vehicle interior is also distinguished by universally high-quality materials and a wide range of intelligent detailed solutions, which impress both in terms of appearance and haptics. The centre console is tilted slightly towards the driver for his easy reach, and is extremely user-friendly thanks to its special ergonomic design, as well as the white illuminated switches.

Advanced headlight technology

The Golf Variant is available with LED headlights and LED daytime running lights so you can enjoy a visible advantage. These are not only more economic than conventional halogen bulbs, but are also distinguished by their extensive light volume, long lifetime and a light spectrum that is similar to daylight. A headlight washer system with water level warning lamp also makes sure that the lights can always shine clearly.

 

Infotainment Whether you need to make a call while driving, require directions, or simply want to listen to your own music – your Golf Variant offers various possibilities for using modern technology easily.

Discover Pro infotainment system

The "Discover Pro" navigation system is fitted as standard on the Golf Variant. Together with the Active Info Display digitalised instrument cluster, it creates a truly modern air in the station wagon. With the innovative gesture control function, you can change from one radio station to another or change the system settings in your car, such as the intensity of the instrument lighting, with a single hand movement. It also has a 9.2-inch screen that is capable of displaying a clear 3D map. It also features eight speakers, FM radio, a CD drive that can also play music in MP3, AAC and WMA format, two SD card slots, AUX-IN and USB ports and a Bluetooth connection for mobile phones. The Discover Pro system is also equipped with a diversity aerial, ensuring good reception even under difficult conditions. 

App-Connect smartphone connectivity

The App-Connect function makes it possible for you to easily connect your smartphone to the car's infotainment system - this helps to reduce distraction to the driver while still allowing them to be connected on the go. Approved apps can be operated on your mobile telephone via the touch screen.

Technology The cutting-edge technology in your Golf Variant ensure pure driving comfort all day, every day.

Active Info Display

The innovative Active Info Display instrument cluster gives information far beyond your speed and fuel level. With various information profiles, you can decide which specific data are displayed in the instrument cluster such as detailed Driving Data, or show a visual display of your driver assistance systems. All this and more is presented on a high-resolution 12.3-inch colour display.

 

Blind Spot Sensor with Rear Traffic Alert

Newly available on the Golf Variant is the Blind Spot Sensor with Rear Traffic Alert system. The system is active at speeds above 30 km/h and monitors traffic behind for a range of 20 metres via radar sensors. If, during the intended lane change, the radar detects a vehicle in the area not visible to the driver or that is approaching fast from behind, the system alerts the driver with a visual signal in the exterior mirror. Rear Traffic Alert comes to the driver's aid when reversing out of a parking space with restricted visibility - it detects approaching vehicles within a certain area and sounds an audible warning. If need be, the system can even brake the vehicle within its own limits to ideally prevent a collision or at least reduce the severity of the impact.

Driving profile selection

The driving profile selection lets you change the way the Golf Variant drives at the touch of a button. The system makes adjustments to the engine, steering, gearbox, air-conditioning and even the headlights. Three pre-set modes and the customisable 'Individual' mode are available.

For example, the ECO driving profile helps drivers to be environmentally conscious and save fuel whilst driving. To achieve this, it adapts the engine performance and activates the start/stop system if it is not already active, as well as other features. The driving profile also regulates the air conditioning and thermal management systems to optimise fuel and energy consumption. The mode also selects earlier switching points and activates energy-saving coasting as often as possible.

Comfort Make yourself comfortable in your Golf Variant. Its extensive equipment, the uncomplicated handling, and many convenient extras ensure that you can enjoy every day with it in a very relaxed way.

Luggage compartment

The Golf Variant has ample space, whatever your plans - from a simple day out at the park to the weekly shopping trip to the supermarket. Thanks to its particularly low load sill and a height-adjustable load floor in the luggage compartment, you can also load heavy objects with ease. The four fastening rings make it easy to secure the load.  

Also, if you need even more space, the luggage compartment cover is easy to detach and stow away under the luggage compartment floor. The asymmetrically divided rear seat backrests, which can be folded down separately, come into their own when you need to stow bulky items.

Panoramic sliding sunroof

A glass roof allows more light to enter the vehicle interior, giving you a uniquely generous feeling of space - especially when you open the large panoramic sliding sunroof for all your passengers to enjoy. The roof consists of two large glass panels, with an electric tilting and sliding function on the front panel. When the sun is too strong, you can cover the panoramic sliding sunroof completely at the touch of a button using the blind underneath. 

Leather equipment

Enjoy the incomparable feeling of a luxury atmosphere on every journey. With comfortable leather seats that offer good lateral support, both driver and passenger will be well taken care of on every journey. In addition, enjoy the feel of high-grip leather on the handbrake lever, multifunction steering wheel, and gear lever.
