Volkswagen presents at the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt in a world premiere the study of the newly developed Golf Sportsvan. The compact van will complete the Golf family in the middle of next year.
The Golf Sportsvan impresses, among other things, with a remarkably spacious and variable interior (rear seat with 180 mm adjustable in length and more than 1.500 liters of boot volume) and state-of-the-art assistance systems. The basic version will already be available as standard with features such as XDS +, multi-collision brake, air conditioning, seven airbags, the new electronic parking brake, an 5 inch touch screen, variable cargo floor and a luggage compartment cover.
In addition, the most innovative assistance systems are entering the Golf Sportsvan: For the first time ever in a Golf, the Blind Spot Sensor with Ausparkassistent into the program. He warns in front of vehicles in the blind spot while driving. When reversing out of parking the system also recognizes the side of the car approaching and thus often difficult for the driver to identify road users and warns also in this case. If a collision threatens, the electronics of the Ausparkassistenten automatically activates an emergency braking function. In addition, technologies such as the DCC adaptive chassis control system, the Front Assist emergency ambulance monitoring system, the ACC automatic cruise control and the lane departure warning system will be available.
The six new engines for the Golf Sportsvan with a performance range from 63 kW / 85 PS to 110 kW / 150 PS are equipped as standard with a start-stop system and up to 19 percent more economical than the predecessor variants. All market-launch engines also comply with the Euro 6 emissions standard. Just how efficient the new engines are for the Golf Sportsvan is demonstrated by the 1.6 TDI BlueMotion with 110 PS: It will probably consume only 3,7 l / 100 km (similar to 95 g / km CO2) - the best value in the field of compact vans.
