Volkswagen has revealed the Estate and Alltrack versions of its eighth-generation Golf.
The manufacturer says that compared to the previous-generation Golf Estate, the new model is 66mm longer, which it says means a 'significant' increase in rear legroom.
Boot space is also up, by six litres to 611 litres with the rear seats up, and by 22 litres to 1,642 litres with the rear seats down.
Available engines will include eTSI mild hybrid petrols, with seven-speed automatic transmission as standard, and TDI diesels.
Equipment grades will be Golf, Life, Style and R-Line, with standard equipment across the range including lane assist, autonomous emergency braking, a new oncoming vehicle braking when turning function, Car2X traffic hazard alert, and keyless start.
Also standard will be a digital instrument panel, 8.25in touchscreen, We Connect and We Connect Plus online services, and automatic air conditioning.
The crossover Alltrack model is based on the Estate, but features permanent all-wheel drive, increased ground clearance, and rugged styling features such as bespoke bumpers.
UK prices and on-sale dates for both models are yet to be announced.
