2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen Las Vegas NV
While most segments have been growing to the point of being flooded with options, shoppers looking for a family station wagon may find themselves debating between just a few choices. Topping the list for the wagons is the 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen in Las Vegas NV. The model benefits from many of the same features as the standard Golf, and is built on the same platform. The result is a roomy interior and an agile driving style, but with the additional cargo space families need for enjoying the outdoors.
From the front end, it may not immediately be obvious that the VW Golf SportWagen isn’t the compact hatchback that has won a large fan base over the past four decades, with similar styling cues flaunting the same basic DNA. Standard roof rails may be the first thing to tip you off, and once you see the longer length of the side profile, there’s no denying it’s a SportWagen. Still, it’s clear this isn’t your old station wagon, as the styling has come a long way, and the driving dynamic is anything but fussy or sluggish.
Under the hood of the 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen is the same 1.8-liter TSI turbocharged 4-cylinder engine found in the standard Golf, which returns 170 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. A five-speed manual transmission is standard, but a six-speed automatic is available.
Though not priced much higher than the compact vehicles in the lineup, the Golf SportWagen starts off with some impressive features. Among them is the 6.5-inch MIB II touchscreen audio system with the App-Connect functionality that brings Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink connectivity.
Though its passenger space is the same as a regular Golf, but the SportWagen has a whole lot more room behind the rear seats. Cargo space sits at 30.4 cubic feet with the seats upright, and a full 66.5 cubic feet with the seats folded down. This makes it a competitive option against many crossovers.
2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen Features
It would be stating the obvious to say most people who consider the 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen are seeking a model with more cargo space, and the roof rails provide a solid foundation for a variety of carrier bars. It’s also a fun option for those who like the feeling of driving a car, but need more space. Some might say it’s also a step above many options when it comes to standard features as the base trim level comes with heated side mirrors, a rearview camera, the 6.5-inch MIB II infotainment system with VW Car-Net App-Connect, a USB port, SiriusXM satellite radio and a multi-function steering wheel.
There are three total trim levels for the 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen, each of which is available in eight color options.
