Additional Info


Boom. boom. boom. da daah. Hello, and welcome to revisited. Please meet our contestant. What is your Erm, Colin Ryan. And occupation? Motoring journalist. And specialist subject? The bleedin’

Your questions begin. How do you make a bigger VW Golf? an estate version. And what it look like? Well, a Golf at the front with an bit on the back. How about the inside? Er, a Golf at the front with an bit on the back. With good-quality and purply-blue lights in the dash? good- quality plastics and lights in the dash.

Oh, and the tailgate release is activated by a rubber rectangle hidden the number plate recess very BMW 5-Series.

How unattractive was the Mk3 estate? Unbearably so. Does the Mk4 any better? Yes, a little Why’s that, then?

Mainly because of the intersecting around the rear pillars of the cluster, tailgate and windows. is the maximum capacity of the load in litres? 1,470 litres, 286 more than the standard And do the wheel arches encroach the loadspace?

No, not much. How do the rear split? 60/40. And do the rear need removing to fold the down? Umm, yes, do.

What clever stowage are there? Apart from the things like decent-sized pockets, there is a tray goes between the carpet and the spare wheel that can various bits and pieces tow-ropes, spanners, whatever you in fact. Do you get roof rails?

What engines are available? The goes from the 75bhp through to the 1.6 110bhp, the two-litre up to the 150bhp V5 2.3-litre, with a diesel options of 68, 90 and 110bhp. A diesel coupled to a six-speed is also in the pipeline.

And how much extra will an cost over the hatchback Around £750.

We know the Golf has a soft ride a fair amount of body so what’s the difference in the estate

The rear suspension has been to take the extra weight, but it’s pretty difficult to any change. The ride is just as but the steering feels strangely than the hatch, which never be accused of being in the first place. What the gearchange and brakes? Is this Mastermind revisited, or are you personally in the car, Magnus?

Look, answer the question. OK, OK. The gears are with a precise, positive-feeling and discs on all corners make the perform with aplomb. a plomb? Pass.

How quiet is it? As quiet as a normal Very quiet indeed, the estate car roominess, there’s no car boominess. Only at higher does wind noise to intrude.

Is the Golf estate fun to Pass.
