2013 Volkswagen Golf Wagon 2.5L Appreciation Post

2013 Volkswagen Golf Wagon 2.5L Appreciation Post

The Volkswagen Golf is regarded as one of the best hatchback vehicles of all time. It is well built, comfortable, reliable and comes with VWs famous build and materials quality. In this guise with the 2.5-litre gas engine, it is also one of the smoothest wagons around for the price. You have to spend a lot more to outperform this car on the road!


VW Golf

Volkswagen have been very careful with the design of the Golf. Like many popular marques, the Golf has a fanatical following that reacts quickly to changes. Any update is carefully considered and this model iteration has to be one of the better balanced. It updates the Golf nicely while looking fresh and new.


The signature front end has a nice set of headlamps set at an angle with fog lights in the lower sill. The VW badge is front and centre as you would expect while the curved hood flows sinuously up to a very laid back windshield. A fairly straight roofline goes all the way to the back to the hatch while simple side panels let the profile speak for itself.


Inside, the Golf is very well put together. There is enough room for five to travel in comfort and the wagon configuration leaves a lot of room in back for cargo or shopping. This version is in grey with a black cloth interior. It features a panoramic sunroof, climate control, power accessories, CD player, heated seats and central locking.


Under that curved hood is a 2.5-litre five cylinder engine that produces 170 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque. A five speed manual transmission sends power to the front wheels. Power output may be modest, but at only 1,940kg, the Golf is light and is agile enough to be great fun to drive while returning a respectable 9.9L/100km city and 6.2L/100km highway.


To keep you safe, this 2013 Volkswagen Golf 2.5L Comfortline Wagon is equipped with traction control, brake assist, ABS brakes, electronic stability control, front side impact airbags, anti-whiplash front head restraints, disc brakes all round, overhead airbag and dual front impact airbags.


With only 47,202km on the clock for a five year old car, this is a real bargain. The quality and character of the Volkswagen Golf is well known and at less than $15k, this one won’t be here for long!
