the new Golf Wagon offers quality, functionality
and versatility.

The brand new Golf Wagon was launched this February in South Australia’s McLaren Vale wine region. Planned as a member of the Golf 7 series from the outset, it is the first Golf Wagon to utilise the technologies and benefits of the innovative modular transverse matrix (MQB). With a sophisticated design and a range of innovative features, it delivers all the things that have made the Golf so popular– but with a much larger luggage space, so you can pack it full of fun.

Golf wins wheels car
of the year.

Volkswagen’s seventh generation Golf has been named 2013 Wheels Car of the Year. The multi-award-winning Golf outclassed a field of 51 eligible vehicles to collect what is widely regarded as one of Australia’s most prestigious automotive awards. To receive this honour, the all-new Golf impressed Wheels’ highly respected panel of seven expert judges throughout a rigorous week of testing.

Wheels magazine editor, Glenn Butler, lauded the Golf’s consistency in all of the criteria; “The Golf VII is satisfying to drive, serene to ride in and superbly user-friendly. Locally, the new Golf has also claimed victory in Wheels magazine’s Gold Star Value award for the 90TSI, and’s Family Car of the Year Under $30k.

This is the third time the Volkswagen Golf has taken out Wheels magazine’s top honour. The Mark 1 Golf was awarded the 1976 Wheels Car of the Year and the Mark VI Golf was named 2009 Wheels Car of the Year. Volkswagen has received five Wheels Car of the Year awards over the years, including in 1974 for the Volkswagen Passat and more recently in 2010 for the Volkswagen Polo.
