There’s no denying it: A vehicle often reflects your lifestyle. The station wagon has long had the reputation for being a family vehicle for the obvious reason that it is the original “crossover.” Which is to say, it perfectly combined the practical aspects of a compact car with its easy maneuverability and better fuel economy, but with a lot more trunk space. Though many automakers shied away from the vehicle over the past generation, VW continues strong with the 2018 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen available to Seattle WA drivers here at Carter Volkswagen.

So how does the Golf SportWagen remain relevant in today’s market? It may seem like a niche vehicle, all the way up until you take a test drive. It isn’t just for families anymore, either, as young drivers and couples find it the perfect model for weekend getaways and outdoor adventures.

Key highlights of the 2018 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen

One thing that has changed for the SportWagen in recent years is the addition of a 4Motion all-wheel-drive option. This is found as an upgrade to the base, S, trim, but is absent on the SE and SEL. Aside from this, you see the same great benefits such as the impressive 1.8-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that offers 170 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. Mated to this is a standard five-speed manual, but a six-speed is available.

Key features found in the base S trim include:

  • Black roof rails
  • Rain-sensing windshield wipers
  • Automatic headlights
  • LED taillights and daytime running lights
  • Manual air conditioning
  • Leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheel
  • Power windows and locks
  • 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system
  • Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration
  • Rearview camera
