Everything You Need to Know About the 2017 Volkswagen Golf

VW has streamlined their 2017 Volkswagen Golf and Golf GTI lines, eliminating many previous variations and including a number of new trim features, as well as a more accessible Performance Package option. Changes to Volkswagen’s line-up are primarily trim and feature upgrades, with the 210-horsepower engine and sleek, sporty design remaining unchanged.

The most significant change seen in the 2017 Volkswagen Golf is the introduction of a new trim level - the Sport trim - which also includes VW’s standard Performance Package.

Sport trim features

New 2017 VWs will offer the option of an affordable Sport trim, which includes:

  18-inch Nogaro aluminum-alloy wheels
  Bi-Xenon headlights
  LED Daytime Running Lights
  Keyless access
  Push-button start
  Black Mirror Caps
  Standard Performance Package (Golf R brakes, electronically-controlled and torque sensing limited-slip differential, 10-hp increase (210 to 220))

2017 VW Golf GTI SE and Autobahn models

The Performance Package now comes standard with SE and Autobahn trim, making this option more accessible on all models. In addition, the Autobahn model will include a number of driver assistance features as standard (Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Traffic Alert, Adaptive Cruise Control, Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Traffic Alert and Autonomous Emergency Braking). Further features can be included with a Driver Assist package: offering Park Assist, Lane Departure Warning and Light Assist for the high-beams.

What to Look for in a Quality Used Car

More Cars Less Money

If you’re looking for more car for less money, you’ve come to the right place! Buying a used car is a great way to immediately save on the costs involved, but there are a few more things that you can do to save money and ensure that you’re investing in a car that is truly of a good quality. Getting more car for your money is the dream and with the right used car dealership on your side, that dream can be realized for you.

Below are a few tips to consider when shopping for affordable used vehicles:

  • Avoid high taxes on your purchase by looking for cars for sale in Olympia. Taxes in Olympia tend to be lower than in Seattle, Tacoma and other areas.
  • Shop at both new and used car dealerships that have a reputation for providing a good service and having a wide selection of cars to choose from. This means that you’ll get more for your money.
  • Ensure that the used vehicle you are purchasing hasn’t missed a service and that it’s been well looked after. Your cars sales agent should be able to show you a detailed service history on the vehicle. Used cars can be great investments if they have been well-maintained according to the owner’s manual.
  • Test drive the car thoroughly. Take it for a drive that’s longer than just down the road or around the block. Look for a car that drives smoothly and doesn’t present any weird or concerning noises, smoke, ratting, shuddering or similar. The gears should change easily and the brakes should be responsive.

Don’t forget that a used car can really save you in the long run too. A lower purchase price doesn’t only mean lower monthly repayments on your vehicle finance. It also means lower insurance premiums too.
