Volkswagen announced the release of the all-new Golf SportWagen Limited Edition, which is scheduled to arrive in dealerships later this month. Positioned in the sweet spot of the Golf SportWagen lineup, the vehicle will have a starting price of $24,995.
The Golf SportWagen Limited Edition is loaded with popular equipment, including an array of standard driver assistance features.

On the inside, the Golf SportWagen Limited Edition comes standard with leatherette seating surfaces and KESSY® keyless access with push-button start. Every vehicle is also equipped with heatable front seats and window washer nozzles, which were previously available only on the SE model.
The Golf SportWagen Limited Edition also features Volkswagen’s new MIB II infotainment system, which provides a comprehensive suite of connectivity features. The MIB II system offers USB and VW-Car Net App-Connect, allowing owners with these systems to access select apps from their smartphones directly through the vehicle’s head unit. Volkswagen of America is one of the first in the industry to support all three available connected car systems: Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink. VW Car-Net’s connected vehicle services umbrella also includes connected car services, advanced telematics, and enhanced navigation available by subscription.
The Golf SportWagen Limited Edition is equipped with a 1.8-liter turbocharged and direct-injection TSI four-cylinder engine that produces 170 horsepower and 199 pound-feet of torque. The engine is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. On the highway, the vehicle achieves an EPA estimated fuel economy rating of 35 mpg.
