Picture a station wagon. Did you think about something big and American, maybe with wood paneling on the sides? If so, you have a good memory of the 1980s and earlier. But the station wagons available today tend to be small, European, and luxurious — models from the likes of BMW, Volvo, and Audi.
And, you can add Volkswagen to the mix. The 2018 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen doesn’t match the opulence of the aforementioned luxury brands, but the flavor is similar. It’s smartly sized, well-finished, fun to drive, and it has tons of cargo space. And unlike a BMW, Volvo, or Audi, it delivers these qualities at affordable prices.
Not surprisingly, shoppers like what they’re seeing. Based on AutoWeb’s volume of price quotes, the Golf SportWagen is at the top of the wagon field among our visitors — winning it our AutoWeb Buyer’s Choice Best Wagon Award. Here are 10 reasons why customers are so interested.
