2019 Volkswagen e-Golf SE – Build & Price Review: Colors, Interior, Specs, Accessories, Packages

The 2019 Volkswagen e-Golf is the electric version of the regular Golf hatchback. It includes a 35.8-kWh battery pack and a 115-horsepower, 214 pound-feet electric engine. Its EPA-estimated driving range is 125 miles. VW offers two model levels: SE and SEL Premium.

Standard equipment on the SE, which has a starting price of $31, 895 includes a 7.2-kW onboard charger, DC fast-charging capability, 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, LED running lights and taillights, cruise control, keyless ignition and entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated power-reclining front seats (manual height and fore/aft adjustment), and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

Tech features for the 2019 Volkswagen e-Golf SE include Volkswagen Car-Net Security & Service remote services, an 8-inch touchscreen, a rearview camera, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a USB port, Bluetooth, and an eight-speaker sound system. There is also an optional Driver Support package, including adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking.

Now that a DC fast charger comes as standard equipment, my choice would be the SE. You’ll lose out on the SEL Premium’s extra features, but the cost savings with the SE is important. Just be certain that you get the SE’s optional Driver Support package for its useful innovative driver protection aids.

In comparison to other rival electric vehicles, but the e-Golf has one important drawback: range. Its EPA-estimated assortment of 125 miles will be adequate for a great deal of family, but a few top rivals — namely, the Chevrolet Bolt, Hyundai Kona Electric and Kia Niro EV — can go about twice as far. Acceleration is not especially quick using the e-Golf either. But overall we enjoy the Volkswagen e-Golf and recommend it if you are searching for a natural stepping stone to the electrified world.
