white 2019 Volkswagen e-Golf being charged

There are two trim levels available for the 2019 Volkswagen e-Golf, which we will compare today. They are the SE and the SEL Premium. The SE is the basic trim level and it can be upgraded with an available Driver Assistance Package, which is not available for the SEL Premium. However, the SEL Premium comes with more standard driver assistance features, which is why it does not have the available package.

The performance specifications of these two vehicles are identical. They both have the same batteries and the same horsepower and torque, as well as the same fuel economy rating, which is estimated at 126 mpg. Keep reading below for more information on the 2019 Volkswagen e-Golf with our trim level comparison.

As with any two vehicles of the same model, there are more similarities between the SE and the SEL Premium than there are differences. They have the same standard 16-inch split 5-spoke diamond-turned alloy wheels. Both trim levels have automatic headlights and LED taillights. The SEL Premium upgrades the lighting features a little with an Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS) and LED headlights. The SE has e-Golf design-integrated LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL).

In the cabin is where the SEL Premium makes the most enhancements. As the name suggests, it has more premium features than the SE, such as the touchscreen displayed in the chart above. Some examples of this include an auto-dimming interior rearview mirror, interior ambient lighting, and V-Tex leatherette seating surfaces. Other than the seating materials, the seating in both trim levels is virtually the same, with heated front seats and adjustable lumbar support in the front seats. The SEL Premium has Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC). ACC helps you follow the speed of traffic by adjusting to the vehicle ahead of you if you get within a predetermined distance. The SE trim level has standard cruise control, which does not have the same capability or convenience as ACC does.
