Historically, hatchbacks haven’t been the first model types that drivers picture when they envision serious performance and sporty adrenaline out of their vehicles; but in the case of Volkswagen, there’s no vehicle build that hasn’t gotten the royal treatment over the years. With this, we’d like to introduce you to the 2019 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen, a turbocharged and refined piece of engineering that proves you shouldn’t ever judge a book by its cover.
The 2019 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen brings a 1.8-liter turbocharged Inline 4 engine to the fold, which not only can produce as much as 170 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, but can achieve as high as 25 city miles per gallon and 34 highway miles per gallon on distinct trims. Combined with 4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive and a 6-speed automatic transmission, this makes the SportWagen a worthy option, but there’s much more to love. We encourage you to keep reading below and learn what else the 2019 SportWagen has to offer!
True to form with its hatchback designation, the 2019 Golf SportWagen is quite the spacious model. With all seats down, you’ll be treated to 66.5 cubic feet of cargo volume, as well as seating for up to five passengers, all of whom can gaze out of its power tilting and sliding sunroof to their surroundings. Plus, you’re free to relax on a 12-way power driver’s seat – what could be better?
There’s no shortage of fun to be had inside the 2019 VW Golf SportWagen, as it offers an 8-inch touchscreen sound system that houses SiriusXM® Satellite Radio and Bluetooth® audio streaming capabilities. You can play your favorite tunes through a 400-watt Fender® Premium Audio System, which brings each note to you in stunning clarity.
The ultimate goal of every VW model is to ensure that you and your passengers are safe and sound no matter what might happen on the daily journey. Thanks to class-leading innovations like a Rearview Camera System, Front Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control and more, the 2019 Golf SportWagen can do this easily – in fact, it’s received a 5 Star Overall NHTSA safety rating for the current model year!
