What’s New on the 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen?
The 2017 VW Golf SportWagen is truly a vehicle that appeals to everyone. This functional and fun wagon offers customers a sharp performance with a 1.8-liter turbocharged engine and still offers a practical and versatile interior with a large cargo volume, respectable fuel economy and more. How could Volkswagen make it even better? For the 2017 model year, VW added more features to the SportWagen to add to its already wide range of appeal.
One of the biggest updates of the year, which is perfect for those Wisconsin winters, is the addition of Volkswagen’s 4Motion all-wheel drive system to the base trim S. 4Motion improves the SportWagen’s handling and stability, especially when going through tight corners and at high speeds. SportWagen models without the 4Motion all-wheel drive system will be equipped with the standard front-wheel drive chassis.
2017 VW Golf Sportwagen Safety Features
VW added more safety features to its available package as well as the SEL trim. Safety features on the SEL trim now include adaptive cruise control, a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert and forward collision warning with autonomous emergency braking. The optional Driver Assistance Package, which is available for all SportWagen trims, gains features such as park assist, a lane-departure warning alert, HID headlights with LED daytime running lights and light assist high-beam control.
2017 VW Golf SportWagen Cargo Space
Part of the SportWagen being so functional and practical is the presence of a large cargo area. Comparable to most crossovers on the market, the 2017 Golf SportWagen gives customers a useful and an abundant amount of cargo space. Behind the rear seats, the SportWagen has 30.4 cubic feet of cargo space and with the rear seats folded down, that number jumps to 66.5 cubic feet of cargo space. The 2017 SportWagen is also able to carry five passengers and has plenty of legroom and headroom, making even the rear seats comfortable for adult or taller passengers.
