Η VW παρουσίασε το Golf Variant στη Γενεύη. Η wagon έκδοση του νέου VW Golf διαθέτει ράγες στην οροφή και στιλιστικά δεν διαθέτει σημαντικές αλλαγές σε σχέση με την hatchback έκδοση. Η μεγαλύτερη αλλαγή είναι ότι με τη προσθήκη του τρίτου όγκου, ο χώρος των αποσκευών έχει αυξηθεί σημαντικά, φτάνοντας έτσι τα 605 λίτρα, o οποίος με την αναδίπλωση των πίσω καθισμάτων αγγίζει τα 1.620 λίτρα. Το συνολικό μήκος του αυτοκινήτου έχει αυξηθεί κατά 30,7 εκατοστά (4.562 mm μήκος), σε σχέση με το πεντάπορτο Golf hatchback. Είναι 105 κιλά ελαφρύτερο από τη προηγούμενη γενιά και έχει μεγαλύτερο μεταξόνιο 2.636 mm (2.578 mm αυτό της προηγούμενης γενιάς).
Το Golf VII Estate φορά τους ίδιους TSI (απόδοσης 85, 105, 90, 122 και 140 ίππων) και TDI κινητήρες (απόδοσης 105, 110 και 150 ίππων) που φορά η hatchback έκδοση του Golf οι οποίοι συνδυάζονται με σύστημα Start/Stop και μηχανικά (5 και 6 σχέσεων) και αυτόματα κιβώτια DSG (6 και 7 σχέσεων). Επίσης υπάρχουν και οι τετρακίνητες εκδόσεις 4MOTION.
Η πιο οικονομική έκδοση, η Variant BlueMotion φορά τον 1.600αρη TDI απόδοσης 110 ίππων, έχει μέση κατανάλωση 3,3 λίτρων/100 χλμ και εκπέμπει 87 γρ/χλμ CO2. Ανάμεσα στους κινητήρες θα υπάρχει και η έκδοση TGI BlueMotion η οποία καταναλώνει φυσικό αέριο έχοντας μέση κατανάλωση 3,4 κιλά/100 χλμ με συνολική αυτονομία 1.360 χλμ.
GENEVA DEBUT FOR MOST SPACIOUS AND FUEL-EFFICIENT GOLF ESTATE EVER
- The new Golf Estate and Golf Estate TDI BlueMotion
- World premiere of the new Golf Estate
- Versatile all-rounder has space for five adults and 605 litres of luggage
- Golf Estate TDI BlueMotion is the most fuel-efficient Volkswagen estate car with 3.3 l/100 km New Golf Estate will launch on first markets as early as August
At the 83rd Geneva International Motor Show, Volkswagen will present the new Golf Estate for the first time. This signifies that Europe’s most successful carmaker is extending the range of its compact bestseller in line with the previous generation to include a versatile estate car. As in the case of the classic hatchback Golf, the weight of the Estate could be reduced significantly. The new Golf is up to 105 kg lighter than its predecessor! For the first time in the history of the Golf Estate, Volkswagen is also offering this model (performance range 63 kW / 85 PS to 110 kW / 150 PS) as an independent and extremely fuel-efficient TDI BlueMotion. The 81 kW / 110 PS Golf Estate that comes with a 6-speed gearbox in this case is the most fuel-efficient Volkswagen Estate of all time, with a combined fuel consumption of 3.3 l/100 km (equivalent to 87 g/km CO2). The all-wheel drive Golf Estate 4Motion will likewise be celebrating its premiere in Geneva; it will be available as TDI in two performance levels with 77 kW / 105 PS and 110 kW / 150 PS. And Volkswagen has a Golf Estate TGI BlueMotion with natural gas drive (CNG) in the pipeline.
Boot volume with more than 100 litres. The first generation of the Golf Estate was launched on the market exactly 20 years ago. More than 1.8 million units have been sold of this practical version since then. Today, the new Golf Estate is a sporty and elegant all-round vehicle that combines low fuel consumption values and yet dynamic driving performance with premium quality and versatility. Thus the boot volume has been expanded from 505 litres to an astonishing 605 litres (loaded up to the back seat backrest). Loaded up to the front seat backrests and under the roof, the new Golf Estate offers a cargo volume of no less than 1,620 litres (predecessor: 1,495 litres). The cargo area up to the back seat is 1,055 mm long; up to the front seat backrests, the length is 1,831; the lowest width of the boot is an imposing 1,003 mm; and the boot sill is only a convenient 630 mm high – no doubt, with such values, the Golf Estate is capable of mastering the majority of all transportation challenges. In terms of equipment, the estate car features for the first time a roller blind with a two-step roll-up mechanism as luggage space cover; when not needed, the roller blind, like the net partition, can be stored under the cargo floor. In addition, the height of the cargo floor can be adjusted in the new Golf Estate; or it can be locked in place in various positions or completely dismantled. The remote unlatching of the rear backrests in the boot and the folding backrest itself have also been completely redesigned and are thus even more practical and easier to use. Also new on board the boot: four bag hooks.
The Golf Estate makes an even more striking and sportier impression. In terms of the exterior, the Golf Estate – with 4,562 mm, 307 mm longer than the hatchback – follows the precise and impressive lines of the Golf hatchback model up to the border of the front door. From the B-pillars onward, however, the most autonomous Golf Estate since the model range exists emerges by dint of purposeful design modifications and extra space.
Distinctive C-pillar becomes D-pillar. One glance at the rear makes it clear: Right from the outset, the estate car has been a member of the model range – so the new Estate was not derived from the four-door vehicle but was developed in tandem with it. That’s why the silhouette of the new Golf Estate shows particularly distinctive lines. Nevertheless, as autonomous as it is, the Estate can be recognized as a Golf at first glance. Background: The designers for the first time succeeded in transferring the shape of the C-pillar, which is like a drawn bow and is typical of the classic Golf, to the D-pillar of the Estate; visually, the “third” side window forms a part of the D-pillar.
Moreover, in contrast to the classic Golf, the so-called character line is picked up again behind the rear wheel arches and carried completely over the rear of the vehicle. This design lends the rear an even more muscular appearance. The precise window sill (upgraded by a chrome trim in the top version), the long side window area and the slightly rearward-sloping roof including roof spoiler underscore this dynamism. As a consequence, the silhouette of the new Golf looks longer, more exclusive, more powerful and sportier. A roof rail that’s optionally available or, depending on the equipment line, a standard feature, was integrated elegantly into the silhouette.
In addition, the proportions of the new Volkswagen make for a high degree of sportiness; here it’s the wheel base in particular that’s been increased from 2,578 mm to 2,637 mm in comparison to the predecessor and the crisp and short body overhangs that lend the Golf Estate its pronounced dynamic character.
Typical Golf, also from the rear. The new two-part tail lights of the Golf Estate emphasise its family affiliation to the model range and the brand. The half of the tail light that’s integrated in the boot lid, however, is bigger than in the hatchback version and forms a longer parallel line with the graphic of the boot lid in the lower area. In addition, a clear-cut difference between the Golf Estate and the “classic” Golf exists in the design of the middle part of boot lid and bumpers: Whereas the licence number of the hatchback model is in the bumper, the designers of the Golf Estate decided to integrate it with the boot lid again – analogously to the predecessor of the estate car.
Golf Estate TDI BlueMotion with independent features. The Golf Estate will be available in the Trendline, Comfortline and Highline equipment lines. The new Golf Estate TDI BlueMotion will be offered in Trendline and Comfortline. The TDI BlueMotion is different from the other models in the range both visually and technically. Viewed from the front, the most fuel-efficient model of the range with a combined fuel consumption of 3.3 l/100 km can be distinguished by a partially closed radiator grille screen. At the rear, it’s the so-called flaps on the rear window rim identifying the Golf Estate as TDI BlueMotion. In addition, the efficiency model is equipped with optimised underbody and wheel well panelling, a ground clearance that has been reduced by 15 mm and super low rolling resistance tyres. There are TDI BlueMotion monograms on the front, back and side of the body, which is optionally painted in the exclusive colour of “Clearwater Blue metallic.”
With Stop/Start system and Automatic Post-Collision Braking System. Like all new Golf cars, the Estate is equipped with a Stop/Start system and battery regeneration mode. As the first estate car in its class worldwide, it also has the new Automatic Post-Collision Braking System, which automatically slows down the vehicle when it is involved in an accident in order to reduce further its residual kinetic energy. The standard features include already in the basic version:
• airbags (seven) • electrically adjustable wing mirrors • outside temperature display • chrome rings around the interior vents • eco-HMI (fuel consumption-related information on the multi-function display / instruments) • electronic stabilisation programme • height-adjustable driver’s seat • electric windows in the front and rear • rear window wiper with intermittent setting • air conditioning • steering column with height and length adjustment • centre console with storage compartment • electronic parking brake with auto-hold function • XDS differential lock • tyre pressure monitoring indicator • asymmetrically split and folding rear seat backrests, with remote unlocking • electro-mechanical power-assist steering • dust and pollen filter • daytime running lights • touchscreen with 5-inch TFT display • green-tinted insulating glass • central locking with wireless remote control
Premium class features for the compact class Moreover, as a new feature, there will be the PreCrash preventive occupant protection system available for the new Golf Estate. If this system detects a potential accident situation, the seatbelts of the driver and front passenger are automatically pre-tensioned to ensure the best possible protection by the airbag and belt system. When an even more critical situation is on hand, such as severe oversteer or understeer with ESC intervention, the side windows are closed (except for a small gap) and so is the sunroof. When the windows and roof are nearly closed, the head and side airbags offer optimal energy absorption and thereby achieve their best possible effectiveness.
Moreover, a broad range of high-tech systems is on offer for the Estate. They cover technologies like Front Assist including City Emergency Braking function; Automatic Distance Control (ACC); Lane Assist; Driver Alert system; road sign recognition and the latest generation of the Park Assist; as well as the automated light functions Light Assist and Dynamic Light Assist. More new systems have been added: progressive steering, a driving profile selector of up to five modes (“Eco,” “Sport,” “Normal,” “Individual” and, in combination with DCC plus “Comfort,” available for the first time in the Golf Estate); a newly developed ergonomic sport seat (ergoActive seat); a guard against using the wrong fuel in the diesels; a new deluxe climate windscreen that is also a first in this segment as well as a new generation of information and entertainment systems.
Infotainment and entertainment. All infotainment and entertainment systems of the Golf Estate are equipped with a touchscreen as standard. The new device generation is available in six extension levels and in three different display sizes: 5 inches, 5.8 inches and 8 inches. Starting with 5.8 inches, Volkswagen uses displays that have proximity sensors: as soon as the driver or front passenger moves a finger near to the touchscreen, the system automatically switches from display mode to input mode. The displays also have a function that lets users scroll through lists or browse CD covers in the media library with a wipe of the hand. A high-end sound system by Dynaudio as well as two telephone interfaces (“Comfort” and “Premium”) are optionally available.
Seven charged direct-injection engines. Just like the new Golf hatchback, the Golf Estate uses two completely newly developed engine generations. As mentioned in the beginning, all seven ver-sions are fitted as standard with a Stop/Start system (reducing fuel consumption by up to four per cent) and battery regeneration mode (cutting CO2 by around three per cent). The new Golf Estate has either a 5-speed or 6-speed gearbox, depending on the engine. Most of the TSI and TDI engines may also be combined with an automatic dual-clutch gearbox (DSG).
The petrol engines (TSI of the EA211 engine series) produce 63 kW / 85 PS, 77 kW / 105 PS, 90 kW / 122 PS and 103 kW / 140 PS. All the engines in the Golf Estate are efficient. The 1.2 TSI BlueMotion Technology with 77 kW, for example: With its agile engine, the estate uses only 5.1 l/100 km (DSG: 5.0 l/100 km); and yet it accelerates to 193 km/h, if required.
The new diesel engines (TDIs of the EA288 engine series), of course, propel the Golf Estate extremely efficiently. The power range of the three high-tech diesels: 77 kW / 105 PS, 81 kW / 110 PS and 110 kW / 150 PS. Not only the 110 PS TDI BlueMotion version with 3,3 l/100 km is very fuel-efficient in this context. Even the 320 Nm 110 kW TDI approximates the magic 4 litre mark with 4.2 l/100 km.
Some 20 years after the first Golf Estate made its debut, the all-new Golf Estate is set to make its first public appearance at the Geneva Motor Show.
The new Golf Estate, which like the Golf hatchback is based on the MQB platform, is up to 105 kg lighter than its predecessor, and for the first time will also be available as a full BlueMotion model, with combined fuel consumption of just 85.6 mpg (equivalent to 87 g/km of CO2).
At the business end, the Golf Estate’s boot volume has been expanded from the 505 litres of itspredecessor to 605 litres (loaded up to the back seat backrest). Loaded up to the front seat backrests and under the roof, the new Golf Estate offers a cargo volume of no less than 1,620 litres (versus the 1,495 litres of the Golf Estate Mk VI).
In terms of appearance, the new Golf Estate closely follows the precise lines of the Golf hatchback model. On account of the extra space between the C-pillar and the D-pillar, the ‘classic’ Golf then becomes the Golf Estate; at a length of 4,562 mm, the Golf Estate is 307 mm longer than the hatchback version. Visually, the ‘third’ side window forms a part of the D-pillar, with the result that the new Golf Estate appears sportier than its predecessors.
The Golf Estate BlueMotion, like the Golf BlueMotion hatchback, uses a 1.6-litre diesel engine producing 110 PS, and has a six-speed manual gearbox. The petrol engine line-up for the new Golf Estate starts with a 1.2-litre TSI 105 PS, rising via a 1.4-litre TSI 122 PS unit to a 1.4-litre TSI ACT 140 PS engine with cylinder deactivation. As well as the BlueMotion model, two other common rail diesel-engined models will be available: a 1.6-litre TDI 105 PS and a 2.0-litre TDI 150 PS.
An all-wheel Golf Estate 4MOTION will also be making its debut in Geneva, but there are no plans to sell this model in the UK. UK sales of the new Golf Estate are likely to start in July, with first deliveries in October. Prices and specification will be confirmed closer to the on-sale date.

Volkswagen model offensive at the Geneva Motor Show: New Jetta Hybrid, new XL1, new cross up! and six new Golf models
Wolfsburg/Geneva, 04 March 2013
XL1 – production version of the two-seater sets world record with 0.9 l/100 km
Golf Estate with front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive – as TDI BlueMotion with 3.3 l/100 km
Golf GTI – for the first time with two power levels; 220 PS and 230 PS
Golf GTD – long-distance sports car consumes just 4.2 l/100 km
Golf TDI BlueMotion (diesel) – with 3.2 l/100 km the most fuel-efficient Golf of all time
Golf TGI BlueMotion (natural gas) – 3.4 kg/100 km and up to 1,360 km driving range
Jetta Hybrid – 170 PS saloon consumes merely 4.1 l/100 km
cross up! – new member of the New Small Family for the urban jungle
The Geneva Motor Show (4–17 March) will be the venue for the next stage of the Volkswagen model offensive. No less than six (see above) new models of the Golf – the most successful car in Europe – will take centre stage in 2013. In a series of world premieres, Volkswagen will present the new Golf Estate (with front-wheel or all-wheel drive); the extremely fuel-efficient Golf TDI BlueMotion (as hatchback version and estate car); the Golf TGI BlueMotion with natural gas drive; as well as the iconic Golf GTI and Golf GTD. In addition, Volkswagen will show the cross up!, a new member in the New Small Family, for the urban jungle. The new Jetta Hybrid and the production version of the most fuel-efficient car in the world –the XL1 – will set benchmarks for sustainability.
0.9 litres and 21 g/km CO2 – world premiere of the XL1 production version The XL1 by Volkswagen is the most efficient of all production cars with a fuel consumption of 0.9 l/100 km. Thanks to its plug-in hybrid system, the two-seater can also be driven for up to 50 kilometres locally in pure electric mode, i.e. with zero emissions at point of use. The XL1 follows pure sports car design principles: low weight (795 kg), perfect aerodynamics (Cd 0.189) and a low centre of gravity (1,153 mm high). This gives this Volkswagen the ability to cruise on the road at a constant speed of 100 km/h using just 6.2 kW / 8.4 PS. In all-electric mode, the XL1 requires less than 0.1 kWh to cover a driving distance of over one kilometre.
Systematic lightweight construction (among other things, monocoque of CFRP), perfect aerodynamics and the plug-in hybrid system – consisting of a two-cylinder TDI (35 kW / 48 PS), the E-motor (20 kW), a 7-gear dual-clutch gearbox (DSG) and a lithium-ion battery (capacity: 5.5 kWh) – enable the XL1 to emit only 21 g/km CO2. If needed, the XL1, which reaches (electronically limited) 160 km/h, accelerates to 100 km/h in just 12.7 seconds. One thing is certain: 0.9 l/100 km fuel consumption is a peak performance unequalled up to now that illustrates how Volkswagen is redefining what is technically feasible in car making, thus bringing the future right into the present.
3.3 litres and 87 g/km CO2 – world premiere of the Golf Estate In a world premiere, the new Golf Estate will debut at the Geneva Motor Show. It is up to 105 kg lighter than its predecessor and for the first time in the history of the Golf Estate, Volkswagen is offering this model (performance range 63 kW / 85 PS to 110 kW / 150 PS) as an extremely fuel-efficient TDI BlueMotion. The 81 kW / 110 PS estate car that comes with a 6-speed gearbox is the most fuel-efficient Golf Estate of all time, with a combined fuel consumption of 3.3 l/100 km (equivalent to 87 g/km CO2). The all-wheel Golf Estate 4MOTION will likewise be celebrating its premiere in Geneva.
The new Golf Estate is a sporty and elegant vehicle that combines low fuel consumption values and yet dynamic driving performance with great versatility. Thus the boot volume has been expanded from 505 litres to 605 litres (loaded up to the back seat backrest). Loaded up to the front seat backrests and under the roof, the new Golf Estate offers a cargo volume of no less than 1,620 litres (predecessor: 1,495 litres).
In terms of appearance, the new Golf Estate follows the precise and impressive lines of the latest Golf hatchback model up to the border of the front door. On account of the extra space between the B-pillar and the D-pillar and homogeneous visual modifications, the “classic” Golf then becomes the Golf Estate; at a length of 4,562 mm, the Golf Estate is 307 mm longer than the hatchback version. The designers succeeded in transferring the shape of the C-pillar, which is like a drawn bow and is typical of the classic Golf, to the D-pillar of the Estate; visually, the “third” side window forms a part of the D-pillar. Result: The new Golf Estate makes a more elongated, more exclusive and sportier impression than its predecessor.
6.0 litres and 139 g/km CO2 – world premiere of the Golf GTI In tandem with the Golf GTD, Volkswagen will unveil the production version of the new Golf GTI in the trade fair hall on Lake Geneva – a double world premiere. Its body is based on that of the Golf VII, but it adopts a plethora of classic and familiar GTI design cues – first and foremost, the typical decorative red. For the first time, these stripes not only border the honeycomb-structured radiator grille but reach up into the housings of the standard xenon headlights. Volkswagen combined the superior new appearance with a premium in performance: The new Golf GTI is powered by an advanced engine from the EA888 series – a two-litre turbocharged direct-injection petrol engine with 162 kW / 220 PS. The sports car icon is optionally available in a performance-enhanced version: The engine of this Golf GTI Per-formance develops 169 kW / 230 PS.
Both GTI versions are equipped with a Stop/Start system as standard and, with a 6-speed gearbox, they attain the same low DIN fuel consumption of 6.0 l/100 km (CO2: 139 g/km). Compared to the previous model (155 kW / 210 PS), the combined fuel consumption of the Golf GTI has therefore been reduced by 1.3 litres per 100 km, or 18%! A 6-speed dual-clutch gearbox (DSG) without any interruptions in propulsive power is optional for both power levels, matching the character of the sporty icon to perfection.
4.2 litres and 109 g/km CO2 – world premiere of the Golf GTD The GTD has been the long-distance express in the Golf range for 31 years – in a fascinating way, it combines driving fun with perfect sense, sports car performance with supermini consumption. Based on the seventh Golf generation, Volkswagen now puts the GTD in the limelight, a car whose design again follows that of the Golf GTI closely. Both the GTD and the GTI will have their debut at the Geneva Motor Show in a world premiere!
With a torque that has been raised by 30 to 380 Nm and a performance boosted by 10 kW / 14 PS to 135 kW / 184 PS, the new Golf GTD has become the most powerful production Golf turbodiesel of all time. The TDI with 6-speed gearbox and coupled to a Stop/Start system consumes only 4.2 l/100 km (CO2 emissions: 109 g/km). This means a reduction by 0.9 litres or 25 g/km CO2 in comparison to the previous model. Optionally, Volkswagen offers the GTD with a 6-speed dual-clutch gearbox (DSG) – again, a fuel consumption of 4.5 l/100 km (CO2: 119 g/km) marks the diesel as a highly efficient car. Favoured by a performance weight of 7.6 kg/PS (including driver), the Golf GTD sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.5 seconds; at 230 km/h, it has reached top speed.
3.2 litres and 85 g/km CO2 – world premiere of the Golf TDI BlueMotion With the production version of the Golf TDI BlueMotion, one of the most fuel-efficient cars of our time will make its debut in Geneva. This Golf is powered by a newly developed TDI (direct-injection turbodiesel) with 81 kW / 110 PS. The four-cylinder engine only consumes 3.2 l/100 km; this value is equivalent to CO2emissions of just 85 g/km and represents a 14% improvement in fuel economy compared to the already very fuel-efficient previous model. As mentioned above, the Golf Estate is also available as a TDI BlueMotion for the first time. With a combined fuel consumption of 3.3 l/100 km, it is one of the most fuel-efficient estate cars in the world.
Due to numerous aerodynamic modifications, the Golf TDI BlueMotion achieves an extremely low cd value both as a hatchback and estate car. The aerodynamic modifications include a lowered chassis (by 15 mm), a special roof spoiler for the hatchback version (Estate with standard spoiler in the roof area), a radiator grille that is closed to the outside, partially closed air inlet screens, optimised cooling airflow and special underfloor panels. In terms of technology, overcoming the upward weight spiral through lightweight construction, those features that are standard for all new Golf models, namely Stop/Start system and battery regeneration mode, inner-engine modifications, tyres with extremely low rolling resistance as well a wider spaced 6-speed gearbox resulted in the pioneering fuel-efficiency.
3.4 litres and 92 g/km CO2 – world premiere of the Golf TGI BlueMotion Volkswagen utilises all modern powertrains in order to be able to offer tailor-made mobility solutions, which suit all users’ requirements. Vehicles with natural-gas drive are especially clean, fuel-efficient and economical. The latest version of this pioneering drive is the Golf TGI BlueMotion. It will be launched as a hatchback in the summer and an estate car in the autumn; at the same time, Volkswagen will rechristen its natural gas “EcoFuel” models as“TGI BlueMotion” models.
The Golf TGI BlueMotion is powered by a newly developed natural-gas turbo engine (81 kW / 110 PS). The bi-fuel (designed for natural gas and petrol) 1.4 TSI facilitates impressive driving ranges: In pure CNG operation (with natural gas), the range for the version with a 6-speed manual gearbox is a good 420 km. In this mode, the car’s consumption is 3.5 kg of natural gas per 100 km (equivalent to 94 g/km CO2). When petrol is also used, this adds 940 km to the car’s range (fuel consumption: 5.3 l/100 km). When the two natural gas underbody tanks (together 15 kg) and the petrol tank (50 litre) are completely full, the Golf TGI BlueMotion has a range of up to 1,360 kilometres. If the Golf TGI BlueMotion is equipped with the optional 7-speed DSG, an even greater driving range is achieved thanks to a combined fuel consumption of 3.4 kg/100 km natural gas or 5.0 l/100 km petrol. As fuel-efficient as it is, the Golf TGI BlueMotion offers an agile driving performance, nonetheless: The Volkswagen accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 10.7 seconds. At 194 km/h, it has reached top speed.
4.1 litres and 95 g/km CO2 – world premiere of the Jetta Hybrid The second Volkswagen with an electric motor in the drivetrain shown in Geneva is the European version of the new Jetta Hybrid. The Jetta Hybrid is powered by a high-tech petrol engine (TSI with 110 kW / 150 PS) and a 20 kW electric motor, like the one in the XL1. The gearbox is an automatic 7-speed DSG. Although this hybrid alliance facilitates a powerful driving performance (0-100 km/h in 8.6 seconds), the new Jetta Hybrid, launched in North America in late 2012, takes centre stage with a combined fuel consumption of 4.1 l/100 km (or 95 g/km CO2). This means that the sporty saloon consumes about 20% less fuel than a comparably powered car with a conventional drive system. When driving in the city, this fuel saving increases to 30%.
Whenever possible, the Jetta Hybrid uses the electric motor as sole drive source. Moreover, at the press of a button, the Volkswagen can be driven in pure electric mode, and therefore with zero emissions, at speeds of up to 70 km/h and over a distance of about 2.0 kilometres. Pre-sales of this Volkswagen, groundbreaking when it comes to fuel economy, have commenced in Germany.
4.7 litres and 109 g/km CO2 – world premiere of the cross up! Volkswagen is expanding its range of the cross models with a new member of the New Small Family: the cross up!. The four-door vehicle will be be launched in midsummer, and the Cross range will be enriched by a city specialist. When the new cross up! joins the CrossPolo, CrossGolf and CrossTouran, no less than four individualised Volkswagen with a particularly rugged design will be available under this label.
Owing to distinctive exterior elements, the cross up! can be identified as autonomous model at first glance: From the side, black trim panels on the wheel arches and sills as well as the door protection strips all the way around make for a sporty overall impression. Other unmistakable features are silver roof rails, wing mirrors painted in “light silver metallic” and bumpers with silver highlights. The car’s rugged character is also emphasised by the raised body as well as the machine-polished 16-inch light alloy wheels of the “cross” type. The 55 kW / 75 PS cross up! consumes 4.7 l/100 km (equivalent to 109 g/km CO2).
