Almost four years after the introduction of the Golf 5, Volkswagen has finally added a station wagon model to the range.
According to VW more than 1.2 million Golf estates were sold since 1993.
The latest Golf Variant is to be unveiled at next week's Geneva Motor Show.
The new Golf Variant has a cargo capacity of 690 litres with the back seat up and 1 550 litres with it down. From front to end the Golf Variant is 4.56m long.
At launch, the Golf Variant will be available with two petrol and two diesel engines while it will also become available with VW's TSI twin charger powertrain.
There is no indication yet if VW will bring the car to South Africa.
