About the Golf Plus

You may know the Volkswagen Golf more as a subcompact hatchback car, and that is indeed what it is most famous for being, but that just means you haven’t heard of the Volkswagen Golf Plus. The Golf Plus was a compact minivan produced from 2004 to 2014 exclusively for the European market.

It’s known as a compact minivan because it didn’t feature the typical three seating rows you get in a normal van, and was actually a 5-door hatchback in its construction. The main differences was the taller construction and longer wheelbase that gave it a “crossover” van look. In fact, there was a later version of the Golf Plus made to look more like a crossover SUV called the VW CrossGolf.

The CrossGolf had either a 1.4 or 1.6L gasoline engine or 1.9 or 2.0L turbo diesel engine getting up to 138-hp at best. The idea was to add appeal by incorporating SUV elements in a market where SUVs were gaining popularity. The CrossGolf was also facelifted in 2010.

The Volkswagen Golf Plus was powered by a number of different powertrains, from 1.2L 4-cylinder gasoline units outputting just 85-hp to 2.0L units that got up to 148-hp and 148 lb-ft of torque. Many diesel engine options were also made available from 1.6L TDI to 2.0L TDI. Transmissions ranged from 5-speed manual as standard up to a 7-speed DSG dual-clutch transmission on the newer models.

The Golf Plus shared its engine, transmission, headrests and even its exterior side mirrors with the Golf Mk5 model. The model received a facelift in 2008, revealed at the Bologna Motor Show in December of that year. Changes include a redesigned front end, daytime running lights, optional rear-view camera mounted in the VW budget, and a parking assist feature (also optional).
