That incredibly sensible.

You’re It’s the brand new Volkswagen Estate, complete with a TDI engine, a six-speed manual and enough boot space to many of your important Like crisps.

How many can I transport?

Up to 1,620 litres in fact (seats down), is over 100 litres more the outgoing Volkswagen Golf It’s also 100 litres space than you’ll in the back of a Ford Focus and 70 litres more than an Sports Tourer. For crisp-transporting then, the Golf happily its rivals.

What about the rest of it?

as you imagine, to be honest. Very It’s a fraction lower, and longer than before, has a low sill, offers a touch legroom and elbow room, and on the same MQB underpinnings as the hatch many, many, many VW Group models), meaning its a good thing to drive. The is well damped and comfortable, the progressive and precise, it feels on its feet and responsive. You feel a of extra weight around the over its hatch sibling, but not to blunt a fine road And anyway, if you really want to go quickly in an estate, why not get a secondhand RS4?

So then, you’re probably ‘why don’t I wait for the new VRS estate?’ And you’d be right. it’s bigger than the plus you can get a hot version, and surely the reason you’re reading page, right?

Overall then, a good car for people. But some of you aren’t
