The chart above shows you that the S and the Rabbit Edition are very similar. In fact, of the four characteristics that we chose to compare, three of them were the same for those two trim levels. However, as the Rabbit Edition is a higher price, you may want to know what upgrades it comes with. The Rabbit Edition of the 2019 Volkswagen Golf GTI has GTI Rabbit Edition floor mats and seat tags, keyless access with push-button start, and an Adaptive Front Lighting System (AFS).

The SE has the same wheels as the S and a combination of upgrades shared with the Rabbit Edition and the Autobahn. It has the same touchscreen as the Autobahn, which you can check out in the chart above. It also features Leather Seating Surfaces, keyless access with push-button start, and an AFS. The AFS can help keep the roads well illuminated by moving with the road.
