About Volkswagen Golf SportWagen

The 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen occupies a field of one. As the only compact station wagon in the sub-$25,000 price range, VW’s 2017 SportWagen is ideal for those needing more room than the average hatchback provides, but who have no need for a small SUV. Although the economical diesel engine is no longer offered, the standard 1.8-liter turbocharged gasoline unit provides excellent response and economy perfectly suited to the SportWagen’s taut suspension and available manual transmission. VW also equips the Golf SportWagen with a number of advanced safety features, such as the available Driver Assist Package containing autonomous braking, adaptive cruise control and forward-collision warning. Buyers can even opt for 4Motion all-wheel drive (AWD), but only on the base S trim.

"Owned a 2014 vw bug, loved it but needed something bigger so opted for the sportswagen. I only have 300 miles on it . The day i bought it the airbag light came on, was a wire plug on side impact sensor came loose, no big deal they fixed it right away. The only complaint i have is the sloppy transmission, rough 2nd to 1st down shifts " clucks " and seems to not know what gear to be in when downshifting, hope they can find problem and fix, as i like the car."

Pros: "A much better choice than any CUV on the market."

"I am a VW Fan, I have owned 9 versions of the brand. This car is awesome. The engine is strong. Space in the wagon is awesome. Economically there is no comparison with any small SUV or CUV on the market a lot of bang for your buck. However, my complaint is not with the car itself, it is with the options available. I wanted a fully loaded MANUAL transmission. VW does not offer anything above the base with a manual transmission. So options like heated seats, multi-disc unit(for audio books), sunroof, tire options etc etc were not even offered. With those shortcomings, I would still buy this car again and again over almost all CUV's and SUV's available. But to make these upgrades would make the car easier to live with."

"I love VW which is why I have a Routan, Touareg and SportWagon. It is a perfect match for my family. It drives like a sedan and gets great mpg, is great for putting things like bikes on top of it, and hauling kids around. The giant wagon trunk space is great for putting in cargo as well as a dog. The doors are easy to open and the interior and exterior has the VW touch. It nav system is easy to use and the backup camera is so helpful. This car is excellent"
