The VW Golf is a classic Volkswagen vehicle. Classic and simple go hand-in-hand, which is why the VW Golf only has two trim level options.

It has your basic VW Golf features and a starting Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $21,845. The SE is an upgrade. It has higher-end design features, technology features, and more available safety features. The SE has a starting MSRP of $24,145.

One of the things that you will see in the chart above is that the VW Golf SE has an available Driver Assistance Package. Packages are a way of further customizing your trim level. They come at an additional cost, but they add features of a certain theme. As the name tells you, the Driver Assistance Package adds advanced driver assistance features. If you opt to add on this package, you will enjoy features like an Overhead View Camera (Area View), an auto-dimming interior rearview mirror, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), and a Lane Keeping System (Lane Assist). ACC is like cruise control, but better. It matches the pace of traffic ahead of you when traffic is going slower than your set speed. Lane Assist uses sensors to warn you if you stray out of your driving lane without signaling.

The Driver Assistance Package is only optional, but the SE comes with many features already that the S does not have. For example, it has a power tilting and sliding panoramic sunroof. If you are interested in a VW Golf vehicle, schedule your test drive online today.
