Testing a new and updated wagon straight from our People's Car namesake against 65 competitors, the automotive magazine was quick to name the latest Volkswagen Golf SportWagen to its 10Best list for 2018.* The praise for its "exceptional versatility, dynamics, and value," which made it one of the authority's favorite new vehicles, marks the model's twelfth consecutive award. According to Car and Driver, the new VW wagon is "best and most versatile car in its class," and with designs on the luxury car segment to boot. It's "well-equipped," they add, "tastefully appointed ... practical [and] affordable." Moreover, its "road manners are impeccable," with "handling balanced in a way that now escapes most cars."
