It was about five months ago when German automaker Volkswagen launched the 4Motion version of the seventh-gen Golf hatchback. 4Motion as most of you know is basically the all-wheel drive system developed by Volkswagen. Now, the system has made its debut on the more practical Variant version of the new Golf. It is important to mention that if you are a gasoline engine fan you won’t be able to get one for the Golf Variant 4Motion since Volkswagen is offering only diesel engines for this new edition. Pricing kicks off in Germany from 24,400 euros and the model can be ordered right away.
You can order the 2013 Volkswagen Golf VII Variant 4Motion with a 1.6-liter TDI engine that delivers a rather modest 105 HP (77 kW) and a peak torque of 184 lb-ft (250 Nm). If you want more oomph under the hood, opt for the beefier 2.0-liter TDI which churns 150 HP (110 kW) and a maximum torque of 320 236 lb-ft (320 Nm).
Depending on the engine you pick, the car can return 52.2 mpg US (62.7 mpg UK or 4.5 liters / 100 km) or 49 mpg US (58.8 mpg UK or 49 mpg US).
