The Volkswagen Golf Sportsvan was created as the third body version of the model series, after the classic Golf hatchback and the Golf Estate, and its technical base is the modular transverse matrix (MQB). Thanks to this design layout, it was possible to extend the body over its 2,685 mm wheelbase, which is 107 mm longer than that of the Golf Plus. Compared to the hatchback Golf and the Golf Estate, the wheelbase has grown by around 50 mm. Like the two other MQB body versions of the Golf, here too the weight of the Golf Sportsvan was reduced by innovative lightweight design. Compared to the now retired Golf Plus, the Golf Sportsvan is up to 90 kg lighter.
