Volkswagen Golf Variant R-Line 1.4 TSI (DSG) Review
Variation on a Theme

With a gargantuan 1,620 litres of cargo space available, it should satisfy even the most ardent flat-pack self-assembly freaks

The Volkswagen Golf has been on the road for many decades now, and is still the benchmark for the medium hatch class. Despite recent bad press about fuel consumption figures, the Golf continues to seduce buyers with its combination of style, practicality, value and performance. One thing that has always been a Golf trait is its ability to look bigger inside than its compact exterior, but there are occasions when you yearn for just a smidgeon more carry space.

Accordingly, the VW design folks have come up with a roomier Golf: the Variant. With a gargantuan 1,620 litres of cargo space available, it should satisfy even the most ardent flat-pack self-assembly freaks. And at a current list of $137,400 (26 September 2016), it isn’t ludicrously priced either.

Sold my car withing a few days. Fast process. However, be ready for dealers to slash price saying need to change tyre, need to repaint, etc during viewing.
