Car and Driver: 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen Limited Edition: More for Less


Recommended Posts

2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen Limited Edition


If you were to find yourself browsing Volkswagen’s Golf SportWagen lineup, it might come as something of a surprise to discover that the base S model starts at $22,445—and that the mid-level SE starts at $27,845. That’s quite a pricing gap from the entry-level model to the next-least-expensive variant. Volkswagen is fixing that situation, however, with the 2016 SportWagen Limited Edition, which slots between the S and the SE and brings a host of driver-assistance and convenience features that aren’t available on the S—and a few that are available on the SE.


Limited Edition buyers will get, for $25,815, 17-inch wheels, chrome window trim, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, forward collision warning, autonomous emergency braking, keyless entry with pushbutton ignition, heated seats and windshield wiper nozzles, and a panoramic sunroof. That’s more or less everything you get on the more expensive SportWagen SE model, save for that car’s Fender audio system. In fact, the SE doesn’t even come with the safety features listed above, at least not standard; they’re available on the SE grouped into a $1495 Driver Assistance bundle. Tallying up the figures, that means the Limited Edition brings you nearly the entire SE experience—with the Driver Assistance package included—for $3525 less than a similarly equipped SE.


If you’re in the market for a Golf SportWagen—at least one with an automatic transmission and a bunch of safety nannies—the Limited Edition seems like the way to go unless you absolutely can’t live without a Fender audio system.
