2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen Glendale CA
How would you describe the ideal vehicle for families? It likely has to be roomy enough for the whole crew, offer plenty of cargo space for backpacks, groceries and sports equipment and it should be comfortable for those long trims to visit other relatives. All of these things describe the 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen in Glendale CA, available here at New Century Volkswagen. If you thought the station wagon was a thing of the past, you thought wrong with this appealing model on the market.
The big news for the 2017 model year is that the Volkswagen Golf SportWagen will now have an optional all-wheel drive upgrade. The VW 4Motion system gives an added feeling of stability in slippery weather or over uneven driving surfaces, but runs as a front-wheel drive station wagon when the extra power to the rear wheels isn’t necessary in order to preserve fuel economy. This system is available whether you prefer the five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission option.
Why drive a 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen? It has all the benefits of driving the standard Golf, but with more room for you and your family to enjoy. Passenger space sits at 94.3 cubic feet and the model seats five. More impressive is the cargo volume, which is 30.4 cubic feet with the rear seats upright.
When it comes to offering all the necessities, the Golf SportWagen hits the right notes. Standard features include heated side mirrors, black roof rails, VW Car-Net App-Connect, a 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a rearview camera, cloth seating and a multi-function steering wheel.
It can be incredibly frustrating to drive a car that feels perfectly smooth, all the way up until you’re struggling to reach highway speeds. With a turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine under the hood putting out 170 horsepower, there’s no issue with this in the 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen.
