Volkswagen has added a new trim level to its Golf SportWagen lineup - the Limited Edition. Based on the entry-level Golf Sportwagen S, the Limited Edition brings with it such niceties as a power panoramic moonroof and 17-inch alloy wheels and a host of safety equipment not otherwise available at this price point.
The model will list from $24,995 when it hits dealer lots in the next few weeks.
Notably, the Limited Edition brings with it some elements of the Driver Assistance package that is optional on SE and higher trims. The Limited Edition adds the package's adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with autonomous emergency braking, and a blind spot monitor, but does not include its parking assistance features.
Other additional standard equipment over the entry-level model includes heated seats and windshield washer nozzles, chrome window trim, leatherette upholstery (in place of cloth trim), and a six-speed automatic gearbox. A Limited Edition badge is festooned to each front fender.
Not surprisingly, the Golf SportWagen Special Edition, like the rest of the automaker's Golf lineup, is not available with a turbodiesel engine at the moment.
All told, the Limited Edition adds $1,450 to the price of the base S, which represents a pretty solid value proposition.
