Volkswagen Golf PlusThis is a Euro only deal, but, when you think about it, it makes a lot of sense for the European market.

Since most European cities are clogged with hatchbacks of some sort, and there are no small-sized sedans, finding a practical car can be somewhat of a challenge. On occasion, you can find a small SUV here or there, but those don’t make much sense … ergo, Volkswagen has decided to churn out this thing: VW Golf Plus.

Essentially it is a Gen 6 four-door Golf with a higher roofline and minivan proportions – sort of a mini-minivan. Or, another way to look at it, it’s sort of like Volkswagen’s ’08 take on the Mazda MPV, only smaller.

Also, there’s this interesting bit of kit that’s included:

VW’s ParkAssist system which displays a real-time image of what’s directly behind the car and can take control of the steering wheel to guide the car into a parking spot. Y’know, for people who cannot parallel park to save their own lives.
