Overview

What's New in the 2017 Volkswagen Golf?

All-wheel drive (called 4Motion) is now available in the basic S trim level. Some driver aids have been reshuffled between the SE and SEL trims. See the 2017 Volkswagen Golf models for sale near you

Which Golf is the Best?

It's not a foregone conclusion that everyone will get the automatic version, since a wagon buyer obvious has a non-conformist streak. But that extra torque and the subsequent advantage in resale value could swing it. The SE trim level with those extra driving aids makes a good combination of equipment and affordability. Find a Volkswagen Golf SportWagen for sale

 

How Much Does a 2017 Volkswagen Golf Cost?

The 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen comes in S, SE and SEL trim levels.

The base 1.8T S ($22,400) has 15-in alloy wheels, black roof rails, heated side mirrors, cruise control, rearview camera, leather-wrapped steering wheel with tilt/telescope adjustment, height-adjustable front seats, cooled glove box, hill-hold assist, cloth upholstery, Bluetooth connectivity, 6.5-in touchscreen interface, USB port, SD card reader, auxiliary audio input, HD/satellite radio, power accessories, air conditioning, and a 115-volt outlet in the cargo area.

The S 4Motion version also has heated front seats and 16-in alloy wheels.

The 1.8T SE ($27,950) adds 17-in alloy wheels, fog lights, rain-sensing wipers, panoramic sunroof, leatherette upholstery, heated front seats, keyless entry/start, heated windshield washer nozzles, and a premium Fender-branded 9-speaker audio system.

The SE's optional Driver Assistance Package adds adaptive cruise control, forward collision mitigation and blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.

The 1.8T SEL ($30,790) has 18-in alloy wheels, silver roof rails, navigation, dual-zone automatic climate control, sport seats with 10-way power driver's-side adjustments, and ambient LED interior lighting, plus the SE's Driver Assistance Package as standard.

The SEL's optional Driver Assistance Package brings lane-keeping assistance, front and rear parking sensor, self-parking function (parallel and perpendicular spaces), self-dimming rearview mirror and adaptive bi-xenon headlights.

We've already mentioned the generous 66.5 cu ft of maximum cargo space. But when the rear seats are in place, there's still 30.4 cu ft to swallow the week's groceries.

Safety

Is the 2017 Volkswagen Golf a Safe Car?

Standard safety features include anti-lock disc brakes, traction/stability control and six airbags (front, front side, side curtain). The standard Volkswagen Car-Net telematics system provides a smartphone app that lets you interact with the car remotely, and features an SOS button for emergency assistance.

The SportWagen has not been crash-tested, but the regular Golf scored a maximum five stars overall in government crash tests; four of out five for front impact protection and a full five stars for side impact protection. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) makes the regular Golf a Top Safety Pick+ after awarding it the top rating of Good in every category.

Competition

2017 Volkswagen Golf vs the competition

2017 Subaru Outback -- The Outback is larger than the SportWagen. It's also more capable, providing standard all-wheel drive and a raised suspension.

2017 Volvo V60 -- Considering something pricier? The V60 is even nicer than the SportWagen inside. It's quicker too.

2017 Toyota Prius V -- This larger Prius hatchback is more fuel-efficient than the SportWagen, but nothing like as much fun to drive.

2017 Volkswagen Alltrack -- Like the SportWagen but comes with a raised ride height and consequently an elevated driving position, plus all-wheel drive as standard and vaguely wannabe-crossover styling.

Used Audi Allroad -- The luxurious Allroad offers standard all-wheel drive and tough off-road hardware. It's also a little faster than the SportWagen. Look for a certified pre-owned (CPO) example with a factory warranty.
