My GTI PP has both of them too (delivered end of March).

However, comparing UK & USA models is like comparing pears & oranges.
Our GTI costs £29120 (which is $40,768); their GTI SE costs $31,320 (which is £22,371 [so £6750 less!]
And in the US they get 220hp engine (not 230 as in Europe [245 is not available at all!];
no climatronic; no active info display (only available on "R")
but they get has panoramic sunroof on SE model.
But their S version still has 6.5 Composition Media...
UK models are produced in Wolfsburg (Germany), US models are produced in Puebla (Mexico).
2018 Golf GTI PP White Silver; DCC, Discover Pro; Lane Assist & DLA; Parking pack; Climate windscreen; rear tints.
2016 Golf GTD Oryx white; DCC; Tech pack [=Discover Pro + Dynaudio]; Sport & Sound; Lane Assist & DLA; Parking pack; Climate windscreen; rear tints

I recently read that from 2019, all Golf models will be produced in Wolfsburg no matter what market they are destined for, which I thought was interesting. I wonder why V.W. have decided on this if it is true?

Yes, I’ve read the same. I believe the decision was influenced by pressure from the employees’ union.

Ahh so my 2017 Golf SE Nav came from Wolfsburg upon ordering it fresh from the showroom. Interesting. Why can't cars be produced in the UK?

???

So Honda, Nissan, Toyota, Mini, Aston Martin, Bentley, Rolls Royce, Jaguar, Land Rover, Vauxhall and Lotus don’t produce cars in the UK then?

Cars are produced in the UK; VW’s aren’t.

It would be too far for the people that work on the cars to commute from Wolfsburg.
