2018 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen Tampa FL
Wagons are making a comeback, and we’re not complaining. There’s much to say about the benefits of driving models like the 2018 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen, as Tampa FL families appreciate the impressive cargo space, while still retaining easy maneuverability through city traffic. With AWD now an available feature on the base model, there’s more to love than ever for those seeking a reliable family station wagon.
It is important to note that there are a variety of options to consider when selecting your VW Golf SportWagen. The model comes standard with a five-speed manual when paired with the front-wheel drive, but a six-speed automatic is available. On the other hand, the 4Motion system can only be paired with either a six-speed manual or the six-speed DSG automatic, and only the base trim is available with AWD. If this is confusing, the best way to see what we mean is to get behind the wheel for yourself.

Benefits of the 2018 VW Golf SportWagen
At its cores, the 2018 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen is an extended version of the Golf. Seating capacity is the same, so the main benefit is that it provides even more cargo space. All-wheel drive became a new option in 2017, but only in the base model. For those who are looking for a model that is better equipped for off-road travels, the Golf Alltrack provides a parallel option for modern shoppers.
Aside from offering cargo space that’s similar to what you’d find in a crossover, the Golf SportWagen is well-equipped, with standard features that include LED taillights and DRLs, a 6.5-inch infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, automatic headlights with rain sensor, cruise control, and heated front seats in the 4Motion option.
Available features found on higher trims include an 8-inch touchscreen sound system, Front Assist, Blind Spot Monitoring, a panoramic sunroof, V-Tex leatherette upholstery, built-in navigation and Fender Premium Audio.
