The new Golf Variant can now be ordered with all-wheel drive 4MOTION. With two diesel engines and a towing capacity of up to 2,000 kg the Golf Variant 4Motion will be a choice for young families.

 

The Golf Variant 1.6 TDI 4MOTION comes with 77 kW / 105 hp and maximum torque of 250 Nm - powerfully works (from 1500 to 2750 1/min). Here, the car consumes only 4.5 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers and thus 18 percent less than its predecessor.

 

For customers who want even more power, there is now the all-wheel drive for the first time in the Golf Estate in conjunction with the 2.0 TDI with 110 kW / 150 hp. This engine is the Golf Variant 2.0 TDI 4MOTION on 320 Nm (1750-3000 1/min) and consumes only 4.8 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers.
