2015 Golf SportWagen was revealed in May 2014 and now its price has been revealed by Volkswagen of America. This model consists of a total of six versions.
The TSI S is the most basic version of this line up and is loaded with features. This particular car features a 1.8 four cylinder TSI engine along with a six speed gearbox which is manual. Buyers can also choose to purchase an automatic gearbox. However, it costs an additional $1,100. It has the ability to produce 200 lb- ft of torque and 170 bhp. The driving experience of this version relies upon the 15 inch alloy wheels. Within the car, seats have received a touch of elegance due to their leatherette surface. These can be adjusted manually. A touchscreen display has been offered along with this car. USB devices and iPods can also be plugged into it. Sirius XM radio is also supported. Standard door locks along with air conditioning and power windows have also been offered. The price of this version is $21,395.
Next in this lineup is the TSI SE. This version comes with an automatic gearbox with six speeds so buyers are not required to pay extra for it. 17 inch rim wheels are what buyers of this car will receive. There is also a panoramic sunroof, rearview camera, fog lights in the front, pushbutton start and keyless access. A Fender sound system is also provided. For an extra $995 buyers can have a special lighting package configured. This lighting package consists of LED DRL’s, adaptive bi-xenon headlights, interior reading lights which will also be LED and ambient interior lighting. To enhance the driving experience a driver assistance package is also being offered at a price of $ 695. This package includes rear parking distance control and a warning system to prevent forward collision. This version has been priced at $ 26, 995.
The next version is TSI SEL and this is the car that offers chrome roof rails, climatronic air conditioning, navigation assistance and 18 inch alloy wheels. The driver’s seat comes with 12 way power. The special lighting package as well as the driver assistance package can be purchased at the same price for this car as well. The starting price of this version is $29,345.
To cater to buyers who prefer diesel engines the manufacturer has come up with Golf SportWagen TDI S. This car is powered by a four cylinder 2.0 liter diesel engine. This engine has the ability to produce 236 lb-ft and 150 bhp. The starting price of this car is $24,595. A six speed gearbox which is manual is being offered as the standard gearbox in this car. However, buyers can choose to upgrade to an automatic gearbox with dual clutch. This automatic gearbox will be available at $ 1,100.
The other remaining versions are the TDI SE and TDI SEL. Both these cars feature diesel engines as well. In fact, the four cylinder 2.0 liter diesel engine that powers the Golf SportWagen TDI S will be responsible of producing power for these cars as well. This means that the TDI SE and TDI SEL will both provide the same output which is 236 lb-ft and 150 bhp. It is quite clear that the manufacturer has chosen not to alter the engine or the output in the three diesel versions of this car. All three will vary slightly in terms of performance. However, exteriors, interiors and other features will most certainly differ. Volkswagen is offering the standard gearbox with these two versions as well. The price of TDI SE is $27,995, while TDI SEL costs $30,345. All the aforementioned versions will be available from April.
