The wheelbase was extended as well by 48 millimeters in comparison to the Golf VII, and the auto will be 8 millimeter wider, thus creating a generous interior space.

The Blind Spot Monitor incorporating the Rear Traffic Alert will be implemented in the Golf Sportsvan for the first time as a highly innovative assistance system. This feature automatically activates an emergency braking function when the collision is imminent and also makes the driver aware of the cars in the blind spot.
