Inside, this model has standard leatherette seating surfaces and KESSY keyless access with push-button start. Every vehicle is also equipped with heated front seats and window washer nozzles, which were previously only available on the higher-priced SE model.

The Golf SportWagen Limited Edition is powered by a 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 170 horsepower and 199 pound-feet of torque. It’s matched to a six-speed automatic transmission. The company says this drivetrain will return an estimated 35 miles per gallon on the highway.
