Our spies have managed to snap pictures of the first test prototype for the upcoming 2014 Volkswagen Golf Estate (aka variant or wagon).

Based on the redesigned hatchback, the estate will feature familiar styling but adopt a larger boot that will reportedly accommodate an additional 120 liters (4.2 cubic feet) of luggage. The model will also come with a roof rack for even more cargo carrying capability.

Engine options will likely carryover from the standard Golf, so expect choices to include:

  • A 1.2-liter TSI with outputs of 85 HP (63 kW) and 105 HP (77 kW)
  • A 1.4-liter TSI with outputs of 122 HP (90 kW) and 140 HP (103 kW)
  • A 1.6-liter TDI with 105 PS (77 kW) and 250 Nm (185 lb-ft) of torque
  • A 2.0-liter TDI with 150 PS (110 kW) and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) of torque

The Golf Estate is expected to be introduced early next year, so look for a possible unveiling at the Geneva Motor Show.
