The Golf has been a staple in VW's U.S. lineup for what appears like for eternity. The SportWagen propelled in 2009 under the Passat name, . In the 2015 model year, then again, VW chose to totally upgrade the SportWagen and reposition it in the Golf lineup, in the same way as it ought to have been back when it appeared.

The 2015 Golf SportWagen was saw by the 2014 Golf SportWagen 4MOTION Idea at the New York Car exhibition. Pretty much as I expected, the creation model is about indistinguishable to the idea, put something aside for the way that VW has yet to affirm 4MOTION all-wheel drive for the form that'll hit merchants.

As was long the case for the Jetta SportWagen, the Golf SportWagen will appreciate a flimsy fragment as far as rivalry. Inevitably, whatever is left of the car world will move into this relinquished portion, however until further notice its Golf or nothing.Volkswagen announced prices for the new 2015 Golf Sportwagen, which will hit dealer showrooms in April. It will be offered with two engines: a four-cylinder TSI or a four-cylinder TDI, with prices ranging from $21,395 for the base version equipped with the manual transmission, up to $31,445 for the SEL TDI with the DSG automatic gearbox. Full prices list after the jump.For the 2015 model year, the Golf SportWagen does exactly as I expected it to do: take all the goodness of the 2015 Golf and slap a wagon back end on it. In addition to featuring new looks compared to the Jetta SportWagen that preceded it, the Golf SportWagen is 1.1 inches longer and 0.7 inch wider. In order to help with aerodynamics, VW also lowered the overall body height by 0.9 inch. To give it a more premium cab-rearward stance, VW moved the front wheels 1.7 inches forward.Around back, VW kept all of the key features of the SportWagen, but it revised all of the body lines and installed revised taillights. Part of the line changes include a lower tailgate that allows for easier cargo loading.

The SportWagen’s looks blend the best of two typically different worlds, as it takes the sporty looks of the Golf and the performance that comes to mind when thinking of the R and GTI, and combined it with the utility of a wagon. It is the ultimate substitute for lumbering SUVs and over-compromised crossovers. The only thing it lacks is the slightly increased ride height that helps with light off-road maneuvering, but if you’re off-roading in your Golf, Volkswagen Volkswagen gave me very little to go on of in terms of interior details, but as with any VW model, I expect the Golf SportWagen’s interior to be a great place to spend time. Oddly enough, despite the fact that the new SportWagen is almost an inch shorter in height, it actually has 0.4 inch of additional headroom and 10 percent more cargo room.

In the images that VW provided, I can see that a sporty, three-spoke steering wheel greets the driver, while a set of nicely bolstered seats grip the occupants. The center sections of these seats appear to be Alcatara or suede for better grip. The center console is very clean, and a large touchscreen dominates that space. Flanking the screen are neatly arranged buttons, and under the screen are the HVAC controls, which are also extremely clean. The entire center stack appears to be angled toward the driver, giving him easy access to all of the features.

Volkswagen didn’t go too deep into standard features on the 2015 Golf SportWagen, but it did let us know of a few options. These include a panoramic moonroof, a 12-way power driver’s seat, and Climatronic auto climate control.Inspiring the standard 2015 Volkswagen SportWagen is a 1.8-liter, turbocharged four-chamber motor that creates 170 drive. This motor will be accessible with two transmission alternatives: a five-rate manual or a six-velocity auto. Hope to see increments of up to 17 percent in parkway efficiency when contrasted with the Jetta SportWagen's 2.5-liter four-barrel.

The discretionary motor is a 2.0-liter, regular rail diesel motor that conveys 150 torque – 10 more than the Jetta SportWagon's TDI motor – and 236 pound-feet of torque. This torque beast mates to either a six-pace manual or a six-rate DSG double grasp transmission. Expect roadway efficiency in overabundance of 40 mpg with the diesel setup.

While VW didn't get into the drive framework under the skin of the SportWagen, I can just accept that it'll come standard with front-wheel drive. Given the idea form of this wagon had 4MOTION all-wheel drive, I accept we'll see that on production model too.
