In the sixth generation of the world bestseller, after the two-door and four-door Golfs, this is the fourth body version to be launched. The wagon is one of the most successful models on the market and the extensive redesign should ensure the all-round talent extends its position as a car for business and families as well.

At its market launch the wagon will be offered in Europe in three equipment versions Trendline, Comfortline and Highline. The latter replaces the previous Sportline version as the top equipment line. Engines initially available will include a TSI (boosted gasoline direct-injection engine) with 122hp and two common-rail turbo- diesels (105hp and 140hp). Other engines will follow in stages: two Multipoint engines (80hp and 102hp) and another TSI gasoline engine (160hp).

In front, the new Golf wagon can be recognized by its new bumper, radiator grille and hood styling, as well as its modified fenders and headlights. In contrast to the previous model, the front-end is no longer defined by a chrome radiator grille, rather by a black, horizontally grille and front bumper painted in body color. In the lower area, the wagon has an additional large air inlet, too. Starting with the mid-level equipment version (Comfortline), chrome inserts are integrated in the radiator grille and the lower air inlet. In the top Highline version, this also applies to the frames for the front foglights with new static turning light function. At the rear, the new generation features more elegant taillights and bumpers painted in body color in the lower area. From now on, TDI and TSI versions can also be recognized by their tailpipes, which are no longer covered by the bumper.

In addition, Volkswagen developed a new wheel lineup for the new Golf wagon.

For the interior, the same gauges and instruments from the Golf hatchback, including a standard multifunctional display and upshift indicator, are being used. Also adopted from the Golf was the new generation three-spoke steering wheels, which debuted in the VW CC in 2008.
