Yesterday VW revealed the sixth generation of its popular Golf Estate. Don't worry if you're not familiar with the Golf Estate name. When this latest model comes across the pond it will be called the Jetta SportWagen.
The most notable enhancements with this latest iteration are at the front. The Golf Estate inherits the latest Golf's front-end styling, which follows VW's current "Design DNA." The rear end also gets some visual enhancement in the form of a new bumper and taillights.
All six engine choices from the Golf 2-door and 4-door models will be available for the Estate. The lineup includes four gas engines and two diesel engines. The entry-level models will feature either a 79 hp or 101 hp Multiport engine. Two more potent TSI engines will also be available with either 120 hp or 158 hp. The two TDI diesels will round out the selection and offer 103 hp or138 hp.
Three trim levels will be offered for the new Golf Estate: Trendline, Comfortline, and Highline. Standard equipment for the Trendline model will include ESP, six airbags, daytime running lights, roof rails, power windows, power and heated outside mirrors, 1/3 to 2/3 split-folding rear bench, and climate control. Pricing starts at €18,500 ($25,470) in Germany, and European dealers will start taking orders for the new model today. First deliveries in Europe are expected in September.
