AN estate and an all-wheel-drive Alltrack model is being added to the new Volkswagen Golf line up which sees the car growing significantly in size.

The new model - due for release later in the year - is some 66mm longer than its predecessor and can carry much more cargo.

Boot space now ranges from 611 to 1,642 litres and the car is now 4.63 metres long - some 40mm longer than the latest Mark 8 version of the hatch.

The added dimensions are also reflected in the amount of passenger space, especially in the rear.

Inside, the new estate has the same instrumentation as the latest hatch which sees it coming with a high tech interior which includes a digital instrument panel as standard fit across the range.

Engine choices are likely to be similar to that of the new Golf hatch which includes a mild-hybrid 1.5-litre powertrain in its line up as well other versions of the 1.5 block, a 1.0-litre petrol and 2.0-litre diesels.

Volkswagen has said it will be launching the second generation of the Golf Alltrack as a crossover option with the new estate and the car will come with SUV-like features including different bumpers as well as VW's 4Motion all-wheel-drive system.

Prices for the estate are still to be confirmed but are expected to start from around the £25,000 mark.
