2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen Spartanburg SC
You may have heard the word on the street that a new SportWagen has headed into the lineup. The Alltrack is making waves for its focus on improved off-roading experiences, but what about the 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen? Available here at Vic Bailey Volkswagen of Spartanburg SC, we think there’s plenty this model still has to offer modern families, particularly because it also now offers 4Motion AWD for a better on and off-road driving dynamic, but with a front-wheel drive option.
So why might you choose the Golf SportWagen over the apparently more capable Alltrack? While it’s true that the latter option brings more off-road appeal, there are plenty of shoppers simply looking for better traction on-road while still retaining a classic style over the more rugged appearance of the Alltrack. The VW Golf SportWagen is a simple, elegant solution that is perfect for outdoorsy types, but also for the daily commute. It’s also a less expensive option for those who live lighter outdoor lifestyles.
It’s a shame that most sporting gear can’t be packed up tight, but that’s why you have models like the 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen. Cargo space sits at 30.4 cubic feet, with 66.5 cubic feet with the seats folded flat. Standard roof rails also give you the ability to add roof racks for bulkier gear.
When you think of VW, you picture a vehicle with a nicer interior than most, but with competitive pricing. You’ll find this impression holds up in the SportWagen, which comes standard with a rearview camera, App-Connect features, Bluetooth with audio and a multi-function steering wheel.
Automakers are always trying to make vehicles more efficient, but this often means losing out on performance. Not so in the SportWagen, which has a 1.8-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that produces up to 170 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque while still sipping fuel.
The 2017 VW Golf SportWagen brings back the family station wagon
If you’re old enough, you probably have a very particular picture in your mind when you hear about station wagons. At some point it was all about wood panels and a body so long, it was a bit of an inconvenience. At the very least, you didn’t look stylish, and if you were a kid sitting in the back seats, you might have been just a touch embarrassed.
Styles have changed a lot, and the 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen doesn’t look like the station wagons of the 1970s and 1980s. Instead, the Golf SportWagen looks a whole lot like other hatchback, but just a little bit longer. It’s also not seen as just for families anymore, as the extra cargo space makes it a smart option for a variety of lifestyles. Maybe you need room for your fishing and camping gear, or maybe you’re a career-focused individual who needs to take your business on the road, but without quite needing the bulk of an SUV or van. Whatever your lifestyle, the 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen provides an efficient, attractive and convenient option for modern shoppers.
