Although many motorists see a compact estate car as a pretty pointless idea, there are many interesting things to note about the latest Volkswagen Golf, it has been revealed.
Writing for the business section of the Scotsman, Andy Enright states that Volkswagen has opted to provide some "fire power" in its engine choices for the new Golf Estate.
With estate vehicles usually having the main purpose of carting around a load of baggage, the latest Golf mixes typical entry-level engines with some larger ones that are not "short of punch".
Mr Enright indicates that motorists could opt for a 1.6-litre petrol engine for a standard drive, while also on offer is the more pacey 2.0-litre TDI or the more economical 1.9-litre TDI diesel BlueMotion.
Furthermore, the vehicle provides more loadspace than any other Golf in the past, while he remarks that the rear of the vehicle has a "sleek" look.
Overall, Mr Enright comments that it would be good to see a "rugged, all-wheel drive model" in the Golf Estate range in the future.
Channel Four revealed in a review of the Volkswagen Golf Estate that the vehicle offered a sporty look that provides a useful edition to the Golf range.
