When it comes to practical purposes, you’d think hatchbacks would be the most common sight to see on the roads of Austin TX. Compact, maneuverable and with much more cargo space than any vehicle with a trunk, a hatchback just makes sense for busy families. Except when even the 22.8 cubic feet found in the Golf isn’t enough. This is where the 2018 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen comes in. Think of it as a Golf, but longer.

The style of the 2018 VW Golf SportWagen is simple and sleek, as it doesn’t scream for attention, but gets the job done. With a 170-horsepower 1.8-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, it’s just as practical for driving on the highway as it is for loading up bulk purchases. Plus, it still manages to earn an EPA-estimated 25 city and 34 highway mpg rating.

All the necessities, standard

Though the 2018 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen is practical above all things, VW isn’t known for holding back on features. The brand is a favorite in the U.S. for its European pedigree as much as its German engineering. This means you can expect plenty of thoughtful elements, soft-touch materials and well-fitted interior trim. The vehicle offers a comfortable 94.3 cubic feet of passenger volume with seating for five and an additional 30.4 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats. For those times when maximum capacity is needed, say for a large purchase, the rear seats may be folded for an astounding 66.5 cubic feet of available cargo volume.
