VW has commenced bookings for the Golf Sportsvan in Germany. The car was revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show this September through a pre-production prototype. Though VW called the show car a ‘concept’, it was production ready.

The Golf Sportsvan will replace the Golf Plus variant. To begin with, the Sportsvan is offered with four petrol and two diesel engines, all of which are Euro 6 compliant. The petrol engines feature VW’s TSI technology and are available with 85 hp, 110 hp, 125 hp and 150 hp, while the diesels are available with 110 hp and 150 hp. VW’s dual-clutch DSG transmission is available as an optional extra.

VW believes that the Sportsvan will appeal to younger families and new generation customers. Its predecessor, the Golf Plus, on the other hand was primarily bought by older customers.
