From today, 7 May, UK customers can place their orders for the new Volkswagen Golf SV, which packs in all the advanced technology of the award-winning Golf hatchback range, but in a larger, even more practical body. Prices start at £18,875 (OTR RRP) and first UK deliveries are expected on 22 July.
The Golf SV is the third variant of the seventh-generation Golf, alongside the hatchback and the Estate, and has a look that clearly follows the design of its siblings, with strong elements of Volkswagen’s design ‘DNA’. At 4,338 mm long, the new SV is 134 mm longer than the Golf Plus that it replaces, and 83 mm longer than the Golf. It is 224 mm shorter than the Golf Estate. Its 2,685 mm wheelbase is 48 mm longer than that of the Golf, helping to generate more interior space, while the SV is also 81 mm wider, at 1,807 mm, and 126 mm higher, at 1,578 mm (excluding roof rails).
