as Car and Driver Reports:
We’ve been singing the praises of the Volkswagen Golf for a decade. It’s one of our favorite cars, a 10Best Cars winner yet again for 2019, and a practical solution for people who love to drive and sometimes have large grocery hauls. But what of the driver with a family, or two dogs, or a business transporting framed posters? Enter the 2019 VW Golf SportWagen. A stretched Golf with a much larger cargo hold, the same excellent driving dynamics, and available all-wheel drive, it’s a compelling choice for drivers who need something without “compact” in the description but who still enjoy jaunts on winding roads. True, wagons have fallen out of fashion, and it’s unlikely that the SportWagen’s looks alone will inspire the envy of onlookers. But anyone who watches the SportWagen swallow a Home Depot haul will have no choice but to be impressed. Yet it’ll be much better once it goes electric or even plugin hybrid already.
