The Golf SV. The future of the compact MPV.
Whether you have a family to ferry about, often move lots of stuff around or simply enjoy stretching out a little, having extra space to do it in is always nice. Here is where the Golf SV, also known as the Sportsvan, comes in. This five-seater MPV from Volkswagen has an extremely spacious interior, plus a boot large enough for everything in your life - even bicycles or dogs. Put this together with a powerful TSI engine, superb fuel economy and the latest on-board technology, and you have a compact MPV that is perfect for active families in Singapore.
Space for everyone. And everything.
It is not just the amount of space inside the Sportsvan that impresses, but how easily it can be adapted to suit your needs. With an overall length of under 4.34 metres, the Sportsvan is more compact and manoeuvrable than a normal MPV, yet it accommodates five adults with ease. The higher seating position compared to an ordinary saloon or hatchback allows for more comfortable access and a better view out when driving. Safety is taken care of by the Electronic Stabilisation Programme (ESP) and 7 airbags, and there's the reassurance of a maximum 5-star rating by Euro NCAP.
Thanks to the sliding rear seats and 40:20:40 split backrests, the Sportsvan is also extremely versatile and it's easy to configure the amount of space for different combinations of people and luggage. The rear seat backrests can be adjusted for tilt too, giving rear seat passengers an even higher level of comfort. With the seats folded away there is a massive 1,520 litres of loading capacity.
Naturally, the Sportsvan is equipped with cutting-edge technology throughout. Under the bonnet, it is the powerful 125 PS 1.4 TSI engine and smooth 7-speed DSG transmission. Using the standard driving profile selector, the driver can select four different programmes - Eco, Sport, Normal and Individual - at the touch of a button. Everyone on board can enjoy the touchscreen in-car entertainment system, which comes with App-Connect on the Sportsvan Highline. This allows users to link their Android or iOS smartphones directly to the car using MirrorLink, Apple CarPlay or Android Auto from Google.
