VW Introduces Golf SportWagen Limited Edition Trim
This week, Volkswagen introduced a new 2016 Golf SportWagen Limited Edition that slots between the S and SE trim levels. The sleek, smooth-looking wagon, which provides as much cargo space as a compact SUV, offers value and safety features for wagon buyers with a starting sticker of $24,995 when it reaches dealer showrooms later this month.
Special features on the front-wheel-drive SportWagen Limited Edition include an array of standard advanced driver-assistance features, panoramic sunroof, chrome window trim, rain-sensing wipers, and heated washer fluid nozzles. Also this trim level rides on special 17-in. aluminum alloy wheels and boasts a “Limited” badge on the front fenders. The Golf Limited Edition wagon comes with a rearview camera and is equipped with adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitor, forward-collision warning, and automatic emergency braking systems.
The SportWagen Limited Edition is powered exclusively by the Golf’s 1.8-liter, turbocharged, direct-injection 4-cylinder gasoline engine that produces 170 horsepower and 199 lb.-ft. of torque when mated with a 6-speed automatic transmission. On the highway, the vehicle averages 35 mpg and in city traffic, the SportWagen averages 25 mpg, based on EPA estimates.
Other enhancements inside the cabin of the Limited Edition SportWagen include heated front leatherette seats and keyless entry with push-button start. The German automaker’s new MIB II infotainment system with a 6.5-in. display screen is standard equipment. The new system supports all three smartphone systems and through an available subscription will connect with more in-car telematics and navigation services.
