US: Volkswagen releases Golf SportWagen Limited Edition image

Volkswagen of America has recently taken the wraps off the newly crafted Golf SportWagen Limited Edition.

The special series has been introduced to bridge the gap between the base S and mid-level SE versions, with the Limited Edition model boasting a panoramic glass sunroof, some added chrome trim as well as 17-inch aluminum wheels. You’ll also be rewarded with “Limited” badging on the front fenders and heated window washer nozzles if you become one of the owners. Cabin modifications have been kept to a minimum and the drivers will gain leatherette upholstery, heated front seats, and a MIB II infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality. Other standard amenities include a KESSY keyless entry system and a push button ignition. More importantly there are numerous driver assistance features such as adaptive cruise control, a blind spot monitor, and a forward collision warning system with an autonomous emergency braking function.

Under the hood sits a turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 170 horsepower and 199 pound-feet of torque that has been linked to a six-speed automatic transmission for an EPA-estimated 35 miles per gallon highway of fuel economy. There’s no diesel version in sight so the Dieselgate will not be present and the Volkswagen Golf SportWagen Limited Edition will be seen in dealerships later this month with pricing kicking off at $24,995.
