Bakersfield Car Dealer VW of Bakersfield Provides The First Look At The 2019 Volkswagen SportWagen

The Volkswagen Golf is an incredible vehicle that receives accolades from buyers, car dealers and the automotive press. The 2019 Golf has received Car and Driver’s 10Best Cars award yet again. It’s a vehicle that auto enthusiasts love to drive that’s also practical. But some people need a bit more room to fit the family and haul cargo. That’s where the 2019 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen comes in. Think of it as an elongated Golf that has more room for cargo. There’s 66.5 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats down, as much space as you’d get with some compact SUVs. SportWagen drivers will get the same excellent handling as the standard Golf, but they’ll be able to carry the kind of loads that are simply not possible with the Golf.

Like the Golf, the Golf SportWagen offers optional all-wheel drive. While many people believe that wagons are no longer fashionable, the 2019 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen remains a popular model at dealers like the Bakersfield car dealerships.

The Golf SportWagen, which dates back to 2015, is an affordable option, and it’s a good one at that. ... The SportWagen’s cabin is spacious and comfortable, elegant but practical. The driver-oriented cockpit makes the experience pleasant.”
