Pricing and Selection
When a new vehicle is driven off the lot for the first time, it begins to depreciate, with the biggest drop happening early on. For that reason, you can get behind the wheel of a late-model used car with plenty of years left for a great price. Consider the Golf SportWagen, for example. A 2016 base-level S with approximately 30,000 miles on the odometer can be found sporting a price tag around $15,000. A fresh-from-the-factory 2019 SportWagen S, on the other hand, starts substantially higher at $21,895. Similarly, you can find a 2017 Golf S hatchback with a price in the neighborhood of $17,000 and an odometer reading under 20,000 miles. The 2019 version of the Golf hatchback starts at $21,845, so with just a two-year difference you’d be saving close to $5,000.
Certified Pre-Owned Models
VW’s Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) program backs up the quality of used vehicles to give their buyers solid confidence in the purchase. To be approved for CPO, these vehicles must fall under a mileage cap and then pass a rigorous inspection where 100-plus mechanical components are checked out. Buyers of CPO vehicles are provided with a comprehensive Carfax vehicle-history report containing information on the ownership history, any reported accidents, and other issues. All CPO models also come with a model-specific limited warranty, 24-hour roadside assistance, and other perks.
Safety Through the Years
The Volkswagen Golf models, like all VWs, have earned a reputation for being safe vehicles. In 2017, both the Golf and Golf SportWagen were awarded a five-star safety rating by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), and they were also named Top Safety Picks by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). As for the performance-oriented Golf R and Golf GTI models, those were awarded five-star safety ratings in 2018 and 2016, respectively.
