THE SPORTY R-LINE TRIO OF THE PASSAT VARIANT, GOLF VARIANT AND ARTEON SHOWS THAT SPACE AND PACE CAN COEXIST IN AN ATTRACTIVE PACKAGE.
Ask someone to think of their ideal family car, and they might describe to you the image of a large and practical multipurpose vehicle.
It’s a car with plenty of space and creature comforts for the family, but one that doesn’t excite the senses.
It stands to reason that there is a market for drivers who want to provide their family with space, but don’t want to compromise on either looks or driving dynamics.
With Volkswagen’s trio of chiselled estate cars that drive as good as they look, you need look no further for the ideal premium estate car.
The Golf Variant R-Line is Volkswagen’s most popular model made bigger to accomodate all of a family’s needs.
The 605-litre boot means there’s plenty of room for five occupants and their luggage. Need more cargo space? Fold the seats down to yield 1620 litres, enough for a large shopping trip or multiple golf bags.
But dynamism hasn’t taken a back seat to practicality – the Golf Variant still retains the feisty and sporty drive which the Golf is famous for.
A smooth-shifting 7-speed DSG keeps you engaged while returning parsimonious fuel consumption of 18.2 km/litre.
With the R-Line exterior styling package including high-gloss black accents, sill extensions and a rear spoiler with aero flaps, passers-by will be left in no doubt as to your car’s pedigree.
A large sliding panoramic sunroof lets your passengers enjoy open-air motoring while giving the spacious cabin an even more airy feel.
If you’re looking for even more space but want to maintain your luxurious surroundings, the Passat Variant is your choice.
Effortless and smooth, the Passat Variant R-Line transports your passengers and their luggage with fluid grace.
With 650 litres of boot space, it gives you unparalled versatility and utility when it comes to ferrying people and equipment and never skimps on the essentials of what makes a premium estate car.
Fold the seats down and you now have a cavernous 1780 litres, ready for your next journey.
With assertive and striking front and rear LED lights, it looks like nothing else on the road.
Get comfortable in the 14-way power-adjustable ergoComfort driver’s seat while the 12.3-inch Active Info Display keeps you updated with important driving information.
On long journeys, the Passat Variant deploys a watchful guardian in the form of a fatigue detection system which constantly analyses driver behaviour and sends alerts if it detects tiredness.
What you’ll never tire of is the style and confidence of the Volkswagen Arteon R-Line.
A bold presence in a sea of sameness, the Arteon blends power, space and technology in a broad-shouldered package.
Its low stance highlights the car’s purposeful nature, as does its slim lights and 20-inch alloys.
Powered by a turbocharged 2-litre, 276hp motor, the Arteon delivers smooth and exciting performance through the sure-footed 4Motion all-wheel-drive system.
If the ride isn’t enough to thrill you, the premium 11-speaker sound system with subwoofer from the Danish maestros at Dynaudio is sure to entertain you.
Practicality comes in the form of a generous 563 litres of cargo space, complemented by a large boot aperture and the Easy Open function.
Just flick your foot under the car’s rear to open the rear hatch, perfect for those moments when you have your hands full.
With premium features, space and style, the three cars here take driving to another level.
Your journey should be as exciting as your destination, and the Golf Variant, Passat Variant and Arteon engage your senses like nothing else can.
