Volkswagen Golf (V-1K) Variant 2005-2008

-Europe's number 1 Variant

-More than 1.2 million Golf Variant produced since 1993

Over two model generations more than 1.2 million Golf Variants were sold since 1993. Now there is a new generation. To be seen for the first time at the Geneva International Motor Show (8. until 18 March), the third generation of the Golf Variant makes its world premiere.

The new Golf Variant has a cargo capacity of 690 liters with the back seat up and 1,550 liters with it down. From front to end the Golf Variant is 4.56 meters long.

At launch, the Golf Variant will be available with two gasoline and two diesel engines. Performance for the gasoline engines are 75 kW / 102 HP and 103 kW / 140 HP with the later being the TSI twin charger which utilizes both turbo and super charger. The Golf Variant will be the only variant worldwide with this engine configuration.

Identical in power output to the petrol engines, the two diesel engines: 77 kW / 105 HP and 103 kW / 140 HP are two of the most efficient. The smaller of the two engines achieves 100 kilometers with 5.2 liters of fuel and CO2-Emission of 137g/km. In addition, the larger TDI is just as frugal and non-polluting. With a top speed of 205 km/h the Golf Variant 2.0 TDI consumes only 5.6 liters of (CO2: 148 g/km).

The car looks good until the backdoor, after that it's really bad...

It's a bit like if the front and the back didn't belong to the same car...

Not a good design, but something else.
Looking at the pictures I realised that the surrounding has been used before in press photo’s. Bentley Continental Flying Spur I thought That’s a bit cheap. But on the other hand the surrounding is beautiful.

The back lights remind me of a Mitsubishi lancer saloon - and that doesn't look right on an estate. The rear lights are too low and I agree that it looks like a KIA...wait, the Cee'd actually looks BETTER than this from behind! It looks like it's slipped on a banana.

Maybe in fusing the GOLF and LANCER (hint: think about the meanings of the words), VW were hoping for a 'sports lifestyle' model

When I first saw the back 3/4 view I thought it was a ssangyong. It looks terrible from the back, but from the front its pretty much fine.

that looks really bad... who gave the green light for that? Golf front, Lancer back... confusing and a very bad combination!
