New Volkswagen 2018 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen for Sale in West Warwick, RI
The capable and fun-to-drive 2018 Golf SportWagen combines character and utility, making it the perfect choice for those who value both equally. Buyers can select from four trim levels: S, S with 4Motion (all-wheel drive), SE, and SEL – all of which are covered by the fully transferable People First Warranty (6 years or 72,000 miles, bumper-to-bumper limited). The 170 hp 1.8-liter turbo engine can be paired with either the base manual transmission or the 6-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission with Sport mode feature on the S and S with 4Motion; the automatic tranny comes standard on the SE and SEL. Its EPA fuel economy rating is excellent at 25 city/34 highway.
Passenger Comfort/Cargo Space
There’s plenty of space in the SportWagen for passengers and all of their stuff. The seating is comfortable and supportive, with heat feature for the front row standard on all but the base model; an available 12-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with power lumbar support adds comfort for long drives. The S and S with 4Motion feature cloth upholstery, while the SE and SEL are upgraded to leatherette. The rear seat splits 60/40 for maximum versatility in configuring oversized cargo; with the back seat folded down, space reaches 66.5 cubic feet. The rear cargo space can be accessorized with a MuddyBuddy or Heavy Duty trunk liner for spill management and CarGoTech blocks for holding grocery bags and other items steady. Active people and road-trippers will appreciate the roof rails for carrying sports equipment and other items.
VW wants occupants to be safe; that’s why a rear-view camera is standard and the front end is optimized to hold up in collisions. All trims also get electronic stability control, front and rear side-curtain airbags, engine brake assist, and anti-slip regulation. The state-of-the-art Front Assist technology senses obstacles ahead of the car and responds with automatic braking as needed. And when the SportWagen reaches 8 mph, all doors will automatically lock to for increased passenger protection.
All trims include VW App-Connect technology to provide touchscreen control of the apps installed on your compatible device; the screen is 6.5 inches on the S trims and 8 inches on the SE and SEL. VW Car-Net Security is available in various system levels for travel information and remote services, such as finding nearby fuel stations, locating the car, and locking it in case you forgot to. The audio system can be upgraded to a premium 400-watt system from Fender.
