My favorite out of 20 owned cars!!!

I have owned over 20 cars in my lifetime, this one has been the best value out of BMW, Volvo and GM. Great car and very reliable....if you service it as required

Rear window blows out

by JJOH:breezy ride from Columbus, Ohio | February 06, 2020

Basic wife car. Rear window blew out at 31,000 miles. A significant safety concern to me but not Volkswagen. Wife is retired and disabled. Thankful she was not hurt or had a heart attack when the rear window exploded.

This vehicle is fun to drive !

by Cousman from Florenceville | July 10, 2019

Two cars ago I had a CClass Mercedes, last car an Audi A4 and I find the Golf Sportwagen to be just as fast and more planted on corners. On a more practical level it holds loads more and never loses its highway composure when transporting heavy loads

2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen Overview

The Volkswagen Golf is available as a two- or four-door hatchback, or as a wagon. Power comes from a gas four-cylinder engine and the five-seat Golf competes with the Mazda3 hatchback, Hyundai Elantra GT and Mini Cooper. Volkswagen's performance-oriented Golf GTI and Golf R are related, as is the e-Golf electric car.

New for 2017
A Wolfsburg Edition trim level joins the lineup above the S trim. It features a moonroof, simulated leather upholstery, keyless access with push-button start, heated front seats, rain-sensing windshield wipers, 16-inch aluminum wheels, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, a blind spot warning system with rear cross-traffic alert, and Wolfsburg Edition badges and floormats.

Meanwhile, the S trim level of the Golf SportWagen is now available with all-wheel drive. All-wheel-drive models can have a manual or automatic transmission.
