The 2018 Golf Lineup is Versatile Enough for Everyone

November 8th, 2017 by

There are few vehicles available today as versatile as the Volkswagen Golf lineup, which is why it’s one of the most widely owned vehicles today. It doesn’t matter if you’re a rugged outdoorsman, a family man, a single 20-something adrenaline junky looking for a little sporty model, or the casual commuter looking for something fuel-efficient. The Golf lineup can meet every single one of these needs and more, and that’s what makes them so special. If you’re a Volkswagen fan, there’s a good chance that you’ve at least looked at one of the different Golf vehicles. Today we’re going to break down the different models and explain their strengths and weaknesses. There’s a lot to like about each one, but only one is going to be the right fit for your particular needs.

The Commuter Wagon

The 2018 VW Golf Sportswagen is a rock-solid outdoor performer that’s designed to carry a whole bunch of stuff around. Sure it doesn’t have the rugged enhancements like the Alltrack does, but it packs in enough cargo space to easily get your camping gear out to your favorite spot. This five-door hatch is sleek, it’s efficient and it rides really smoothly on standard roads. It’s the Golf for families that want space and don’t plan to off-road too much.

The Rugged Performer

Much like the Sportswagen, the 2018 Golf Alltrack is a spacious wagon, unlike the Alltrack, this baby is meant to go off-roading. It’s built with plenty of cargo room, but it’s also lifted and sports all-wheel drive. It’s designed to offer smooth performance over rough terrain, and you’ll enjoy taking it through tough courses. When you want to go camping in an area that’s off the beaten path a bit, this is the Golf that you want taking you there.

Little Sporty Commuter

When you’re after a fun little commuter that’s relatively efficient, but still practical, the 2018 Golf GTI is a good option. It’s slightly more powerful with an additional 10 HP, but largely it’s the base Golf. It’s compact, it feels good to drive, it’s affordable and fun.

The Performance Golf

All you adrenaline junkies out there can still have fun with a Golf. As long as that Golf is the 2018 Volkswagen Golf R. This baby comes packed with 292 HP and it really goes when you stomp the pedal. This car is a whole lot of fun to use, and it comes with a suspension that keeps things smooth at speed.

No matter what you want your Golf to do, you can probably get performance that you enjoy from one of the 2018 models. Give them a look, test drive a few and try to pick the one that fits your driving style!
