The new Golf Estate will have an all-wheel drive Golf Alltrack version, while will also become available at the same time.

Sharing a front end design with the new Golf hatchback, the roofline flattens out towards the rear while there is also coupé-type, angled rear window.  An increase in length of 66mm allows for greater interior space for both passengers and luggage, capacity for which increases to 1,642 litres with the rear seats lowered.

Hybrid power is available in the form of the eTSI engine with 48-volt technology and 7-speed dual clutch gearbox.  The system uses 48-volt belt-driven starter-alternator, 48-volt lithium-ion battery, and the TSI engine to form a new mild hybrid drive system that lowers fuel consumption by switching off the turbocharged direct-injection petrol engine whenever possible.
