A distinctive new version of the Golf Plus is set to join the Volkswagen range later in the summer with the arrival of the Golf Plus Dune.
Based in the versatile Golf Plus platform, the new Dune model’s styling is based on that of its ‘little brother’, the VW Polo Dune. As such it features a raised ride height, revised exterior styling and additional standard equipment.
Revised springs and dampers raise the ride height by 20mm to improve ground clearance and give the Dune model a more purposeful stance. This is enhanced by a set of unique BBS 17-inch alloy wheels, wrapped in 225/45 R17 tyres. Just three colours – Ice Silver and Steel Grey metallic (as standard) as well as Blue Graphite pearl effect – will be offered.
Beneath the unique body styling is an efficient 1.9 litre TDI engine developing 105 PS and 184lbs ft of torque. The engine is fitted with a diesel particulate filter (DPF) as standard to reduce emissions. As a result the Golf Plus Dune is capable of returning a combined economy figure of 50.4mpg while emitting only 148 g/km of CO2. These gains don’t come at the expense of performance. The Golf Plus Dune has a top speed of 121 mph and the ability to sprint from standstill to 62mph in 12.1 seconds.
Along with the exterior changes, the Golf Plus Dune also comes with additional equipment inside the cabin. Unique interior trim is joined by a leather steering wheel, gear knob and handbrake. In time for the summer, Climatic semi automatic air conditioning is fitted as standard along with automatic driving lights and windscreen wipers, electric front and rear windows, a multifunction computer and an 8-speaker CD stereo system. Like all Golf Plus models, the Dune also features 6 airbags, ABS and ESP.
The Golf Plus Dune will cost £18,495 but production is limited to only 400 models.
