A selection of safety technologies have been added to the upcoming Volkswagen Golf Estate to ensure that motorists buying the vehicle are given the greatest chance of remaining in one piece should they become involved in an accident.
Among the safety additions to the estate are driver and front passenger whiplash-optimised head restraints, six airbags and ABS brakes.
Meanwhile, drivers will also be able to profit from vast amounts of comfort, alongside the choice of a number of revised engines.
These include a 1.4-litre petrol offering, a 1.6-litre TDI common rail unit or a BlueMotion version with an added focus towards supporting the environment through both reduced CO2 emissions and greater fuel efficiency.
Furthermore, the upcoming Golf Estate, which will begin arriving in 2010 after orders begin in October this year, gains a fresher look through redesigned headlamps and changes to the front and rear bumpers.
According to Volkswagen, "excitement is now a practical choice" for motorists through the Golf Estate, while the car also offers 1,550 litres of luggage space when the rear seats are dropped.
