Today, the 9th August 2007, marks the official launch date of the third generation Golf Estate. Customers, who have been ordering the car since the start of June this year, will now be able to drive their new cars away from Volkswagen Retailers across the UK.
This latest generation of Golf Estate brings versatility and load-carrying ability to the Golf range. Loadspace is 505 litres with the seats in place, rising to a maximum of 1,550 litres when the rear seats are folded flat into the boot floor. A wide tailgate and low loading lip boost practicality while a chrome grille section – similar to the ‘face’ on the Eos – gives the new car an imposing and stylish appearance.
Three trim levels – S, SE and Sportline – and three engines – a 1.6-litre 102 PS petrol and 1.9-litre 105 PS and 2.0-litre 140 PS TDI units are available. Prices start at £14,347 RRP OTR for the entry-level S 1.6-litre and rise to £20,417 for the 2.0-litre TDI 140 PS with DSG and DPF (diesel particulate filter).
Helping drivers to get on the road, Volkswagen Finance – the financial services arm of the Volkswagen Group – can offer a range of finance and insurance products including its flexible personal contract plan, Solutions. The combination of brand values and inherent quality along with the flexibility of Solutions could ensure that a customer gets more Volkswagen for their motoring budget.Published 10 August 2007
