Hoping to become the number one selling vehicle brand, Volkswagen has launched the new 2013 Volkswagen Golf Wagon, representing the next generation of the Golf – one of Volkswagens many iconic vehicles. The 2013 Volkswagen Golf Wagon is available in five different versions; Trendline, Comfortline, Sportline, Comfortline TDI, Clean Diesel and Highline TDI Clean Diesel. Along with the standard features for each model, there are some additional unique features that sets them apart.
This sixth generation redesigned 2013 Volkswagen Golf Wagon has received numerous design improvements over previous generations, including a more aggressive look attributed to the wider stance, lower ground clearance and subtle clean cut lines.
UNDER THE HOOD
The 2013 Volkswagen Golf Wagon offers a choice of two engines, a 2.5L 5 cylinder gasoline engine paired with a 5 speed manual or 6 speed automatic transmission or a 2.0L 4 cylinder clean diesel engine paired with a 6 speed manual or 6 speed automatic transmission. The automatic transmissions come equipped with Tiptronic technology allowing drivers the option to shift gears manually.
Volkswagen vehicles have always boasted enormous fuel economies and the 2013 VW Golf Wagon does the same, bringing home a 9.9 L/100km (city) and 6.6 L/100km (highway) mileage for the gasoline engine paired to the 5 speed manual transmission and a 6.7 L/100km (city) and 4.6 L/100km (highway) mileage for the diesel engine paired with the 6 speed manual transmission.
INSIDE AND OUT
The 2013 Volkswagen Golf Wagon is fully loaded on the inside with all the technology and comforts imaginable for both driver and passengers. It also comes with plenty of cargo space and, if needed, split folding rear seats for moving large and awkward sized items.
Special attention has been paid to the driver’s passengers’ safety including Side Curtain Protection head airbags for front and rear occupants and rear impact optimized head restraints for the driver and front passenger.
The interior comforts include power door locks, power windows and power sunroof complete with tinted glass and power retractable sunshade. The interior also features a manual dual climate control system, 8 speaker deluxe AM/FM/CD/AUX/SAT sound system, and custom dashboard with accompanied instrument panel showing outside temperature, trip, odometer and other vehicle information.
The 2013 Volkswagen Golf Wagon driver and front passenger seats feature 8-way manually adjustable front seats with adjustable lumbar support and lockable head restraints. The front seats are also heated for extra comfort during the winter months. A special mention should be given to the ability of the driver’s seat to be adjusted very low providing a huge amount of head room (especially for tall drivers).
Moving outside to the traditional Golf styling, the 2013 VW Golf Wagon keeps the trademark two tone black and chrome accented grille, which fits nicely within the wraparound contoured front bumper and matches well with front and rear valances.
The 2013 Volkswagen Golf Wagon is equipped with colour matched, contoured door handles and side mirrors with integrated turn signals to improve turn signal visibility. Anti-theft locks and key fob remote control come standard as well as the aerodynamic spoiler integrated into the tailgate and includes roof mounted luggage rails.
To top off the look of the exterior 2013 Volkswagen Golf Wagon includes 16” alloy wheels and 205/55 R16 H, all-season tires with a full size spare (195/65 R15 H, steel spare tire).
With sales of the VW Golf exceeding 29 million vehicles world-wide, it is no wonder that it’s Volkswagen’s most successful model and also one of the most iconic brands coming out of VW.
