The iconic Golf has seen its fair share of modifications and revisions over the decades, and now the German giants look set to make further changes to the latest edition of the stunning family-hatch.
After a raft of rumours had circulated, VW confirmed that they are about to offer motorists a terrific big-boot version of the hugely popular Golf R Hatchback. This estate was due to publicly debut at the recent Los Angeles Motor Show, and this follows on from the introduction of the VW Golf R itself in Frankfurt last year.
Ever since the original and iconic Mk 1 GTI, the Volkswagen Golf has become a brand in its own right with the reputation of delivering leading-edge engineering, performance and build quality in a mid-sized hatchback package. That brand value seems set to be consolidated even further in the next generation Golf Mk 8 now taking final shape behind high walls at Wolfsburg.
The Golf R has been awarded Hot Hatch of the Year 2014 in Top Gear magazine’s awards issue and voted the best of ‘Britain’s Top 50 Cars’ in last week’s issue of Autocar magazine (26 November).
It has been expected for a little while that the Golf R Estate will be launched at the Essen Motor Show this December – and now this is looking even more likely, with the new model having been spotted in testing.
There is no doubt that the Volkswagen Golf GTI is one of the most iconic cars of all time; credited with inventing the hot hatch phenomenon, the car went from strength to strength in an ever-more impressive and advanced model development, with the latest incarnation offering stunning performance and superb ride and handling.
Vehicles can be an amazing feat of technology, getting us around in our daily lives by the millions. Every year a new vehicle comes out, and each time it boasts how it’s the best on the market. A lot of the time, these cars can’t live up to their boasting, falling short of reaching the expectations of those their marketing is aimed at. So what are you to do? There’s a new vehicle coming out each year, and you’re wanting the best of the best. Many car companies boast that their vehicle is top of the line, greenest of the green, and the best value for your buck, but are they telling you the truth?
When it comes to the truth, Volkswagen has been providing it for many generations of cars, and trucks, for millions of car owners over the years. They strive to provide the market with the best quality possible, and the most environment friendly cars that they can. Each year they increase the quality in their vehicles, in both design and functionality. Their engines get cleaner with each new design, burning less fuel and creating less exhaust. Their safety features provide not only the driver, but the passengers with more protection each time a new model has come out.
With that in mind, you should have a good idea of which car company you should be choosing to go with. But what model of vehicle will fit your criteria?

It has unmatched fuel efficiency in its class, making it one of the world’s highest rated fuel efficient family vehicles. Sporting a 50 litre fuel tank, and an 88.3 miles per gallon fuel consumption, it will average around 977 miles per tank theoretically. What does that mean for you? It could very well mean you will only have to refuel the tank ten times a year for an average of roughly 10,000 miles driven annually. This wonder of fuel efficiency has been achieved by the revolutionary lightweight design, and the newest of engine related modifications. Other improvements include the addition of super low rolling resistant tires (with higher air pressure rating), a longer gearbox gear ratio (utilizing a 5 speed manual gearbox), the golf’s new standard battery regeneration system with start/stop capability, and some of the most modern aerodynamic modifications available.
