Here's a first peek at Volkswagen's Geneva-bound Golf Variant. The new station wagon will launch with a choice of two gasoline and two diesel engines underhood. The topline petrol-drinker gets the 1.4L TFSI "Twincharger" that's good for 140 horses. The available diesels are rated at 105 hp and 140 hp, and each one is good for over 40mpg.

Cargo capacity is around 24 cubic feet with the rear seats up and baloons to 54 cubic feet when they're stowed. They fold completely flat, making it easy to load up all your stuff. No official word yet on if/when we'll be seeing it, but our friends at the Jalop say to look for it in NYC in April. We wouldn't be averse to seeing it arrive stateside as the Jetta Wagon -- with a nice, punchy GLI model topping the range. Pretty please, VW?
