We find that many car shoppers feel they need to pick between a sedan that doesn't deliver on versatility or a midsize crossover that's too bulky. But, car shoppers looking for something in between have options. If you are looking for a vehicle with a small footprint that also offers ample cargo space, consider models like the 2018 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen and the 2018 Subaru Outback. Both offer seating for up to five total passengers and cargo space dimensions that deliver room to store whatever you need to bring along for the ride.

Off-road adventure seekers will likely appreciate the high ground clearance and standard AWD on the 2018 Subaru Outback while car shoppers more concerned with handling, fuel economy, and overall cost will likely prefer the offerings on the 2018 VW Golf SportWagen.
