These are the first official photos with the Variant version of the seventh-gen Golf.

Several days ago we saw the Golf VII Variant in very revealing spy photos but with masked taillights taken from the previous generation. Now we get to see the taillight design which closely resembles current Volkswagen models without any real surprises. The car seen here is the more frugal BlueMotion variant with a TSI engine sporting silver roof rails and five double-spoke alloys.

We don't expect any major changes under the bonnet where it will likely borrow the engines from the hatchback, including (but not limited to) a 1.2-liter TSI with 85 HP (63 kW) or 105 HP (77 kW), a 1.4-liter TSI with 122 HP (90 kW) or 140 HP (103 kW), while diesel choices should include a 1.6-liter TDI with 105 HP (77 kW) and a 2.0-liter TDI with 150 HP.

Full details will be available next week when the car will be shown at the Geneva Motor Show, along with the Golf GTI, GTD, e-Golf and the plug-in hybrid variant.
