Volkswagen is presenting a concept car of the newly developed Golf Sportsvan in a world premiere at the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt. The compact minivan will complete the Golf family at the middle of next year.

Golf Sportsvan impresses with such features as a perceptibly more spacious and flexible interior (rear bench seat has 180 mm fore-aft adjustment and over 1,500 liters of cargo capacity) and highly advanced assistance systems

Even the base version offers such standard features as XDS+, Automatic Post-Collision Braking System, air conditioning, seven airbags, the new electronic parking brake, a 5-inch touchscreen, variable cargo floor and a cargo cover.

In addition, highly innovative assistance systems are making their way into the Golf Sportsvan, including the Blind Spot Monitor incorporating Rear Traffic Alert, which is being implemented in a Golf for the first time. While driving, the Blind Spot Monitor warns the driver of vehicles in the blind spot. When reversing out of a parking space, the system also recognizes cross-traffic approaching from behind the car that can be difficult for the driver to see, and it warns the driver in case of a hazard. If a collision is imminent, the system automatically activates an emergency braking function. Other available technologies include DCC dynamic chassis control, the Front Assist with City Emergency Braking surroundings monitoring system, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and a lane-keeping assistant.

The six new engines of the Golf Sportsvan cover a power range from 63 kW / 85 PS to 110 kW / 150 PS; they have a stop-start system as standard and are up to 19 per cent more fuel efficient than the previous engine versions.

All of the engines available at market launch conform to the Euro-6 emissions standard as well. The 1.6 TDI BlueMotion with 110 PS is representative of just how efficient the new engines of the Golf Sportsvan are: its estimated fuel consumption will be a low 3.7 l/100 km (equates to 95 g CO2/km) – the best value in the field of compact minivans.
