Highline specification builds on the equipment list of the SE, with sat-nav, front and rear parking sensors, climate control and 17-inch alloys. It adds up to £1,680 of extras over the SE, but the Highline costs just £500 more.
This means Highline models cost from £20,970 for the 1.4 TSI saloon and rise to £26,045 for the 2.0-litre TDI Estate with the DSG gearbox.
The addition of front and rear parking sensors as standard means that buyers can now opt for Volkswagen’s auto-parking feature for just £195 - without parking sensors it’s a £625 option.
SE models will continue to be sold alongside the Highline but only until stock runs out. Highline cars can be ordered now, with a few cars ready for delivery straight away.
