The fully loaded SEL is a genuine premium German SUV and comes with all the gizmos and gadgets you'd expect from a range-topping VW vehicle. The SEL adds an extra touch of exterior style with standard Premium LED projector headlights with an adaptive front lighting system, an illuminated front light bar, and 18-inch black wheels. On the inside, the SEL adds an auto-dimming interior rearview mirror, leather seats, 10-color ambient interior lighting, navigation, and driver aids such as lane assist, adaptive cruise control, and emergency assist. Pairing this trim with AWD will automatically add ventilated front seats as well.
