2018 Volkswagen Golf Washington D.C.
In the Volkswagen lineup, the Beetle is the model most well-known for its rich heritage, but the Volkswagen Golf isn’t far behind. The model was initially released to the U.S. under the Rabbit nameplate, and it quickly made its mark for its reliability and peppy driving style. Today, the 2018 Volkswagen Golf continues to offer a valuable option for drivers in the Washington D.C. area, though in an arguably more stylish package.
Though many automakers are finally starting to see the appeal and value in hatchback options for compact cars, Volkswagen never put its Golf to rest, which is why it continues to be a top option for its segment. The model offers impressive cargo capacity, with rear seats that fold entirely flat, giving it almost as much space as a crossover SUV.
