Volkswagen is readying a new version of the Golf Plus, the compact MPV that was last seen as part of the fifth-generation Golf range. The Plus sports a higher roof for improved headroom, with our spy shooter estimating an extra 15 centimeters (six inches) of noggin space over a comparable Golf hatchback.

The new model is expected to look more or less like the Mk VII Golf, outside of the taller overall design and subtle styling tweaks. Sharing its bones and its looks with the newest Golf means the Plus will get most of the same engines and transmissions, although we shouldn't expect a hot version with the GTI's powerplant or an all-wheel-drive model.

The main difference in the cabin should be a set of adjustable rear seats, allowing a bit more room and flexibility in the tallish hatchback. As is usual, don't expect this Golf variant to cross the pond. Take a look above for our full gallery of spy shots of the new Golf Plus.

      on a related note: when is VW going to bring the Polo over to North America? Everybody else is playing in the b-segment these days, and the Polo looks solid.

      Well, at least this isn't another VW Bus tease...
