Volkswagen Golf Estate reviewBack

VWGolfEstateThe introduction of the latest Volkswagen Golf Estate is yet another sign that times are changing – no longer is the family estate seen as the sensible option for those looking for a workhorse with a generous boot capacity.

Moreso, the new Volkswagen Golf Estate has joined a class of car that is swelling in popularity – alongside the likes of the Ford Focus Estate and more recently the return of the Honda Civic Tourer, the estate family is growing from strength to strength.

The Golf Estate is exactly what you would expect from Volkswagen, it does what it says on the tin, and it does it well. It’s a stylish, but solid car which sports the most enormous boot – 605 litres with the seats up. The added bonus of this car is that is it in all manner of speaking a larger version of the highly popular Golf, yet it feels like a large car when it comes to quality, yet is quite competent parking in all manner of spaces with maximum ease.

Take it on a motorway and it will give other more expensive rivals such as the BMW 3-series and the Mercedes C-Class quite a run for their money when it comes to refinement.

VWGolfEstate1Like many standard Volkswagen cars, you don’t get a huge amount of equipment included in the price. The basic Golf Estate includes a 5.8 inch touchscreen in the centre of the dash but it lacks other handy luxuries such as climate control or heated seats – you’ll have to pay extra for those.

We’d recommend you avoid the 1.6-litre diesel engine and move straight onto the VW Group’s 2.0-litre diesel engine which should prove to be more economical, or alternatively opt for a turbo-charged petrol engine for a much more satisfying drive.
