VW has unveiled the Golf Sportsvan concept, which is a near production concept car that previews the successor to the Golf Plus. The Sportsvan concept combines a compact hatchback and minivan together into a new vehicle that offers more space for active recreation, family and work.
The Sportsvan concept is now the third Golf body version and it shows its ‘DNA’ links to the Golf GTI. It also gets a standard XDS+ system, which is an electronic differential lock that is integrated into the Electronic Stability Control system to give the concept sportier and more precise.
At its launch next year, the Golf Sportsvan will be offered with a range of six new engines; they are all equipped with a stop-start system as standard and are up to 19 per cent more fuel-efficient than the previous versions. The Sportsvan will launch in the “Trendline”, “Comfortline” and “Highline” trim versions.
The ten top sales volume countries for the new Sportsvan are Germany, France and Italy, followed by Austria, Russia, Belgium, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Spain and Switzerland, but don’t expect it to come to the U.S.
