Volkswagen Golf Variant 1.4 R-Line Review
Variable Vibes

While the Golf has long been termed the “Rolls-Royce” of hatches, the Golf moniker is also carried on their estate car

Opening the door and stepping into familiar ground… But that is because we just recently went up on a road trip up North to Trengganu and Malacca. The Volkswagen Golf is widely seen as the benchmark to how a compact car is to be produced.

While the Golf has long been termed the “Rolls-Royce” of hatches, the Golf moniker is also carried on their estate car, known as the Golf Variant in Volkswagen talk and a taller compact MPV, the Golf SV.

The Variant has all the sharp styling cues of the more popular Golf hatch in the front, is built on Volkswagen’s widely-used and very rigid MQB architecture, and as wagons go, is able to simply haul more stuff.

While the car is slightly longer thanks to the extended rear-end, the wheelbase is actually the same 2,620mm as the hatch.

For Singapore, the Golf Variant is only sold in the top-of-the-line R-Line trim, meaning you get just about all the kit you would get from a Highline trim Golf, and in addition, their sporty R-Line body kit, which includes R-Line bumpers, together with a dedicated radiator grille, side sill extensions, a spoiler on the roof edge and a glossy black diffuser. In addition to the fancy styling, the Variant also benefits from some very stylish LED headlamps and 18” alloys.

At the rear, the car gets slightly different styling compared to the Hatch, with a differently-styled and stylish tail light design which features LEDs. In ensuring a lower loading area, Volkswagen has kept the boot aperture wide and also moved the license plate mounting slot onto the boot lid.
