Without big news compared to what was anticipated a few months ago, the Variant and Alltrack versions of the Volkswagen Golf 8 make their debut on the Italian market.
The German manufacturer has unveiled information relating to the composition of the range, which offers three trim levels (Life, Style and R-Line) , to the available engines and to the prices.
The station wagon version of the Volkswagen Golf, which confirmed itself as the best-selling car in Europe during 2020 , offers that versatility and greater space that is asked of a family member of this category. The new Golf Variant debuts in Italy with all turbo petrol and mild hybrid engines. For those aiming for a greater off-road vocation, there is the new Golf Alltrack equipped with the 2.0-liter 200 HP turbodiesel engine and equipped with 4Motion all-wheel drive as standard.
Mild-hybrid from 29,750 euros, methane version from 33,450 euros
The Italian price list of the Golf 8 Variant starts at 27,050 euros for the 1.0 TFSI version in the Life version. In addition to the 130 and 150 hp 1.5 TSI engines, the new Volkswagen Golf Variant welcomes light electrification thanks to the eTSI versions with mild-hybrid system . In this case, prices start at € 29,750 for the 110 bhp 1.0 eTSI, to rise to € 31,100 for the 130 bhp 1.5 eTSI and € 34,150 for the 150 bhp 1.5 eTSI, again in the entry-level Life set-up. There is also the methane version , the Golf 8 Variant with a 130 HP 1.5 TGI engine, available from 33,450 euros.
On the diesel front there is the 2.0-liter TDI with 115 and 150 HP, offered respectively with prices from 30,500 euros and 35,200 euros. The price list instead starts at 44,100 euros for the new Volkswagen Golf Alltrack 4Motion powered by the 2.0-liter TDI petrol engine of 200 HP.
4.63 meters long, with a 611-liter trunk
The wheelbase of the new Variant version of the Golf is 66 millimeters more than the sedan, with an overall measurement of 2.68 meters. The length of the new wagon is 4.63 meters, offering a particularly roomy trunk with cargo capacity starting at 611 liters . Compared to the previous model, the Golf Variant rises to the level and modernity in terms of on-board technology, with digital instrumentation and new infotainment and connected services that integrate WeConnect and WeConnect Plus functions as standard.
The standard equipment , already present in the basic Life set-up , includes adaptive cruise control, automatic climate control, Front Assist emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane keeping monitoring system, turn assistant and sensors front and rear parking spaces.
The standard equipment is enriched in the Style set-up which introduces 17-inch wheels, tri-zone climate control, Traffic Jam Assist for advanced driving assistance, Emergency Assist, infotainment with 10.25-inch display (instead of 8.25) and wireless charging module for smartphones.
