Volkswagen Sportsvan Highline 1.4 TSI (DSG) Review
Golf for golfers

What’s a Sportsvan you ask?

Well golf is a sport, but the popular hatchback from Volkswagen has nothing to do with the sport whatsoever.

You see the Golf is named after the German word for Gulf Stream. Or so many seem to suggest, because other names like Passat, Scirocco and Jetta are all some wind name or other. Of course if you delve deeper into the internet, you’ll realise that no one really knows where that name came from.

So for our present intents and purposes, let’s assume VW wanted somehow to connect the Golf with the sport. Because what we have here is an expanded Golf with even more space than before for more golf bags, so you can actually ferry your mates and their clubs to the country club.

That I reckon, could be part of the reason for naming the Sportsvan as such. And also because it fits bicycles superbly; no doubt other smaller sporting equipment will find ease seated in this new compact MPV from the people’s car maker.

The entire experience from registering my car on OneShift to the handing over to the dealer was very pleasant. The process at OneShift was efficient and transparent. Special thanks to RenAi from OneShift who was very detailed and helpful.

Good response and support from Angie at One Shift when I wanted to sell off my old Camry which was due to be scrapped in early February. Would recommend this platform for those wanting to buy or sell their cars.
