2017 Volkswagen Golf Tampa FL
Many of us start out driving a compact car. They’re easy to maneuver, fit into tight parking spaces, and the fuel economy is fantastic even if you’re on a tight budget. For some, that initial love isn’t like to go anywhere, but that doesn’t mean you don’t want a little more space. Enter the 2017 Volkswagen Golf available in Tampa FL here at Brandon Volkswagen. You’ll love the model because it’s everything we’ve just described, but with a whole lot more space behind the rear seats for all your latest purchases.
The Golf was most recently redesigned in 2015, which means this model year isn’t seeing major changes, but you will notice it now comes in just two trim levels and only as a four-door option. The S trim continues as your base, while the Wolfsburg is a new value-oriented trim that brings more premium features while keeping the model affordable. Two trims may not seem like a lot, but keep in mind that the Golf is one member of an entire family of hatchback options. This one is just your basic option.
A great car is all about balance, and one thing to consider are the features you just can’t live without. The VW Golf comes standard with power windows and locks, cruise control, heated side mirrors, App-Connect, Bluetooth, a rearview camera, cloth upholstery and a multi-function steering wheel.
Even if you love small cars, one thing that is not a favorite is how underpowered they can sometimes feel. Not so in the VW lineup. The Golf has a turbocharged four-cylinder engine to keep things perky without wasting fuel. You’ll enjoy an impressive 170 horsepower and 199 pound-feet of torque.
If space is your main concern, you should know the Golf is a compact car that seats five, with passenger space sitting at 93.5 cubic feet. The real winner figure is the cargo capacity, which is 22.8 cubic feet with the rear seats upright, but a total of 52.7 cubic feet when you fold the 60/40-split rear seating.
Hitch yourself to a hatchback in the 2017 VW Golf
You may have noticed that hatchbacks are becoming more and more common on the market. Automakers are seeing what you’re seeing, and that’s the fact that a small, compact car has the potential to retain a stylish and even sporty exterior while still offering up plenty of room. Many people in the Tampa area live active lifestyles, and your standard sedan isn’t very good for holding your golf clubs, bringing along a bike or even hauling groceries if you happen to shop in bulk.
The Golf? Well it’s been on the market for more than four decades, and Volkswagen has been committed to providing a practical hatchback this entire time. Formerly known as the Rabbit, it’s a tried and true model that’s affordable, practical, efficient and even fun to drive. Basically, it’s offering an entire package that can’t help but earn some notice.
So why Volkswagen? If you take the time to shop around you’ll notice there’s often something that just isn’t right, until you sit behind the wheel of a VW. The Golf has a high-quality build that’s immediately noticeable, with soft-touch materials and well-fitted trim.
