2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen Glendale CA
The face of the family car is fluctuating, as shoppers place more or less value on performance, roominess, fuel efficiency and cargo space. For many years the SUV has been dominating the market, but that’s quickly changing as drivers place more value on fuel-economy. The wagon is ripe for a comeback, and the 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen in Glendale CA is available for those seeking a practical option that drives performs like a Golf and sips at fuel, while boasting the cargo volume of an SUV.
When we say cargo volume of an SUV, we aren’t making bold claims that don’t hold up in real-world comparisons. The 2016 VW Golf SportWagen offers up an impressive 30.4 cu. ft. of cargo space with the rear seats upright and 66.5 cu. ft. of storage when the rear seats are folded. If this isn’t enough, the standard roof rails provide a strong base for a variety of carriers, creating the functionality of larger vehicle options. When cargo space is at a premium, the SportWagen is ready to compete.
Those looking for a model with a low-ride height that doesn’t skimp on cargo won’t be disappointed with the 30.4 cubic feet of cargo volume found in the SportWagen. Fold the seats flat to get a maximum of 66.5 cubic feet. Roof rails add value for those who need more space for bikes and other gear.
Standard features for the SportWagen include a rearview camera, the 6.5-inch MIB II infotainment system with USB, VW Car-Net App-Connect functions, Bluetooth technology, SiriusXm radio and full power features. A manual transmission also comes standard, with the automatic available as an upgrade.
Safety features include the VW Automatic post-collision braking system, electronic stability control, anti-intrusion side door beams, crash-optimized front end, engine braking assist, a variety of airbags and many more active and passive safety features designed to make the model safe for you and your family.
Travel in comfort in the 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen
It’s easy to see what draws shoppers to the 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen. Designed much like the standard Golf, the interior features and driving dynamic are almost identical to its smaller sibling. In case you haven’t heard, the Golf has become a highly popular model because it offers a smooth and agile driving style, so saying the SportWagen offers the same is no small compliment. The same 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine sits under the hood, delivering 170 horsepower to the 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen. Despite its larger size, the fuel-economy hardly suffers, with the 36 highway mpg rating falling just one mile per gallon lower than what’s found in the smaller Golf. It looks like a Golf, it drives like a Golf, but it’s made for bigger adventures.
Standard features are also slightly better in the SportWagen, with the base model receiving the larger 6.5-inch capacitive screen, rather than the 5-inch resistive screen found in some other base models in the VW lineup. The larger screen isn’t just about ease of use, but the bigger unit also features the App-Connect functions which bring Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink connectivity to the model. Other standard features include heated side mirrors, a USB port, the rearview camera, SiriusXM radio and VW Car-Net functions.
