The Volkswagen Golf SV is here. Offering range-topping practicality and a wealth of intelligent systems to keep you safe and make journeys easier, the Golf SV is an ideal compact MPV that takes advantage of the original model’s flexible MQB structure to create a roomier, more adaptable incarnation of Volkswagen’s much-loved family car. Compact on the outside, the Golf SV offers an expansive cabin filled with light on the inside.
It has a maximum loadspace of 590 litres with a full complement of passengers – 210 litres more than the conventional Golf hatchback, and 71 litres more than even the cavernous Golf Plus. With the passenger seats folded forward, the available luggage space extends to 1,520 litres; again, this outstrips the 1452 litres of the Golf Plus and 1270 litres of the Golf Hatch. As an option, the front passenger seat can also be folded forward – allowing for the storage of very long items.
The interior also features ever-practical Fold Flat Rear Seats. Combining design and ergonomics, this handy feature enables you to be flexible in your Golf SV, whether you need extra load space or additional seats. You will also enjoy climatic air conditioning as standard in the Golf SV, keeping the cabin at a consistent temperature throughout your journey. Meanwhile, the Discover Media or Discover Pro systems offer a choice of routes accessible via a 5.8-inch touch-screen.
The Discover Pro ensures the driver has everything at their fingertips, from MP3 to films, and driver aids such as proximity sensors. Volkswagen offers a choice of 1.2 or 1.4 litre TSI BlueMotion Technology petrol engines. The higher-powered option accelerates from 0 to 60mph in just 8.8 seconds, while the 1.2 litre drivetrain is the more efficient option with just 114g/km of CO2 emissions. A choice of manual or DSG automatic transmissions each provide a smooth response.
Volkswagen is well-known for the safety record of its vehicles, and the Golf SV is no exception. Offering City Emergency Braking, the Golf SV will give a series of warnings and provide intelligent control of braking if it detects a potential rear-end collision. What’s more, Lane Assist and Park Assist systems help avoid any obstacles by keeping you on the right track. PreCrash keeps you and your passengers safe if the possibility of an accident is detected, by automatically closing windows and the sunroof and tensioning front seatbelts.
