According tomedia reports, Volkswagen recently launched two of the latest Mk8 Golf models: the Variant and Alltrack. Both the 2021 new Golf Variant and Alltrack, which are expected to be available in Europe later in 2020, have longer platforms, although both are the same height and width as the five-door Golf.
VW’s latest Golf Variant and Alltrack won’t be available in the U.S. market, but there’s the Golf GTI, equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged in-line four-cylinder engine that can output 241 horsepower and 273 pounds-feet of torque. As an added bonus, GTI will also have a standard six-speed manual transmission.
It is understood that VW’s latest Golf Variant is longer than its predecessor. It is now 4.63 metres long and has a wheelbase of 2.68 metres, more than a foot longer than the seven-generation Golf Mariant, meaning there is more leg-stretching space for second-row passengers. Storage space is also plentiful, with 611 litres of space and an upright rear seat. If the rear seat is folded down, the space can rise to 1642 litres.
The new Volkswagen Golf Variant features a tilted roof and a unique rear window design. Engine options include gasoline, diesel and mild hybrid systems.
Golf Alltrack will be a stronger version of Mariant. It offers more ground clearance, a sturdy plastic body wrap, standard 4Motion all-wheel drive and 4,400 pounds of towing capability. Volkswagen dealers in Germany will accept bookings for both models from September 10, 2020. The price will be announced soon.
