Do you remember the Golf Sportsvan Concept Volkswagen unveiled at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show ? Well, today it’s time to finally see the production version of this new model out for a test in blustery, winter conditions.
To no surprise, the production version looks nearly identical to the concept , with the only noticeable difference being the slightly revised fog lights on the production version.
The new Golf Sportvan will ride on a wheelbase with about 1.96 inches longer than the standard Golf and the body is about 0.3 inches wider. The most obvious of differences between the Golf and this Sportsvan is that it is taller than the standard Golf.
The new model will come as a replacement for the old Golf Plus, and VW built it as a combination between a minivan and a hatchback. Its demographic is younger families who like the roomier interior, but still prefer the compact size on the outside.
Expect the new Volkswagen Golf Sportvan to be unveiled at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show , with the first deliveries starting in mid 2014.
