Meet The 2021 Volkswagen Golf Estate And Golf Alltrack
With more space than ever before, Volkswagen have just revealed their next Golf Estate, due to hit our showrooms early next year.
Extending the Mk8 Golf range even further, Volkswagen have also unveiled a new Alltrack variant too.
The larger models will complement the standard five-door hatchback launched earlier this year, as well as the following detailed GTI, GTD and GTE hot hatches too.
The greatest appeal of the all-new Golf Estate will definitely be its practicality and spaciousness. At 4.63 metres long, it’s 66mm longer than the Volkswagen Mk7 Golf Estate.
Volkswagen promises a vehicle that will facilitate amazing weekend adventures and yet take care of you during a busy day-to-day schedule - providing all the storage space you could ever need to ensure you’re always prepared.
Width and height remain similar to its predecessor’s.
The new-found length of the New Golf Estate is all concentrated in the wheelbase, affording a 38mm increase in maximum rear leg room.
The boot is larger (with the rear seats in place) than before too; owners will have an impressive 611 litres of space to plate with, rising to 1642 litres when the rear seats are folded down flat.
The boot itself features the usual bag hooks and (optional on certain trims) 12V and 230V power sockets, while for caravan lovers or trailer fans, an electrically extending tow hook is also available.
In addition, an optional electric boot door can be operated with a swipe of a foot underneath the rear bumper - giving you a helping hand when you don’t have one spare!
Looking at the all-new Golf Alltrack, it sticks quite closely to the ruggedly styled exterior of the previous version.
Bridging the gap between a classic estate and an SUV, the upcoming Alltrack brings increased ground clearance, lower body cladding, bespoke bumpers and unique interior trims to the table.
Volkswagen hasn’t yet detailed UK-specific engine options for the Alltrack, but has revealed it can tow up to 2000kg braked on a 12% slope! It offers 4Motion four-wheel drive as standard.
The 2021 Golf Estate will be offered with a range of three-cylinder and four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines, echoing that of the incredibly popular Mk8 Golf hatchback.
It’s likely that GTD and R versions will be available in the future, with the potential for a GTE plug-in hybrid Golf Estate too.
As soon as we find out further details on the newly announced Golf Estate and Alltrack variants we’ll be sure to keep you updated - stay tuned!
