Experience the Volkswagen Golf SportWagen

The Volkswagen Golf SportWagen is as sporty as its name suggests. This hatchback is a versatile car that can do just about anything. The SportWagen's clever design makes it a great fit for any driver, whether they're interested in moving people or things.

The SportWagen makes a great cross between a traditional car and an SUV. It has plenty of cargo space. The rear seats fold down for even more storage. However, this vehicle is still low to the ground, and it handles more like a car than like a truck.
