The range of the Volkswagen Golf 7 is gradually widening . It all started, as is logical, with the commercial launch of the sedan, both three and five doors, then you have added all the variants of the C-segment and more appreciated by the European market: the GTD , the GTI , the recent R , but also the 4Motion 4 × 4 or BlueMotion fuel-saving operation . It is then also added the version with bodywork sedan, the VW Golf Variant 7 . Now what’s missing? The van, which should keep the classic name 2014 Volkswagen Golf Plus.
