We have been providing you with reliable overviews of cars, and now you can learn about our new addition – the 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen. In case you didn’t know, the SportWagen is also known as the Estate and is the version of Volkswagen Golf Mk6, Mk5, Mk4 and Mk3. The station wagon or small family car was manufactured for the first time in 1993 and has been facelifted a number of times. As usual, we are providing you with detailed information about the car’s features, safety and awards.
After interviewing the German automobile manufacturer, we have learned that the SportWagen is based on the Volkswagen Group A platform. The car is a lightweight one because it is majorly made of aluminum, but it also features some aluminum parts making it sturdy at the same time.
We have carefully examined the front end of the car and we have noted a two-bar grille on the top fascia and a mesh one on the lower fascia. Other features on the front end are bi-xenon headlights, sleek LED daytime running lights and air vents. When it comes to the rear end, we have noted a magnificent tailgate, stylish taillights and modern exhaust outlet. On the sides, the VW car is glazed by 17/18-inch wheels, classic windows and roof rails.

It has a blind spot monitor to alert the driver of other vehicles in blind spots. It also has a rear traffic alert to alert the drivers of other cars crossing their paths. Other advanced safety features are lane departure warning and park distance control for helping when drifting into another lane and when driving into a parking area respectively.
