If the standard Volkswagen Golf hatchback isn’t quite big enough for your requirements, we highly recommend that you take a look at the German marque’s estate variant.
The attractive Golf Estate features body-coloured door mirrors that perfectly complement the paint finish of choice. All models feature minimum-sized 16-inch alloy wheels too to really make a mark. Inside, there’s lots of passenger space in both front and rear, with room enough for three in the back making this the ideal family model.
Stowage provision is also generous, with, for example, cup-holders, a centre-armrest cubby, and a large chilled glovebox. The Golf Estate also possesses a 605-litre boot space, which should be more than big enough for a weekly shopping expedition or trips to the airport laden with luggage. Nevertheless, if greater capacity is required, simply flip the rear seats to unleash a rather impressive 1,620-litre volume.
Entry-level Match trim lines typically come with a 1.0-litre 115bhp petrol engine, which delivers up to 57.6mpg and produces CO2 emissions from 111g/km. Even more fuel-efficient are models installed with a 1.6-litre 115bhp diesel unit, which returns as much as 68.9mpg and produces emissions as low as 107g/km.
Technology and safety
For your listening entertainment, an eight-speaker sound system (with CD player and AM/FM radio) is included as standard. Bluetooth connectivity features too, making it possible to stream audio content from compatible devices and enjoy hands-free mobile phone communications. An eight-inch touchscreen satellite navigation system is also included, providing voice control, 3D mapping and real-time traffic updates.
Awarded a maximum five-star Euro NCAP rating, this estate car is certainly safe to travel in. As well as all the protective features you’d expect, such as numerous airbags and ISOFIX child-seat attachments, the vehicle comes with a panoply of driver aids. Post-Collision Braking System, for instance, minimises the risk of subsequent impact following a collision by automatically applying maximum braking pressure.
