Volkswagen has made the latest Golf even better in regards to value, following the reveal of the new Match Edition. On sale now, from a price of £20,545, it replaces the SE and SE Nav trim levels, adding more equipment in the process.
What kit does it have?
As the Match trim level echoes the SE and SE Nav models, you can expect to get features such as 8″ touchscreen, Bluetooth, DAB radio, smartphone connectivity, leather steering wheel, front and rear parking sensors, and of course, navigation. As well as this, the Match is able to add new alloy wheel designs (16″), tinted windows and foglights. Not only does the Match offer more kit, but it’s also £300 cheaper than the SE Navigation that it’s replacing.
What engines are available?
The base engine is the 1.0 litre turbocharged petrol, which is able to offer 115hp, and can be mated to either a 6-speed manual, or a 7-speed DSG. Next up you’ve got the 1.5 litre turbo petrol, which offers either 130 or 150hp, and can be mated to either the 6-speed manual or the 7-speed DSG.
In case you’re pining for a diesel, you’ll be glad to know that a 1.6 litre turbocharged diesel is available, which offers 115hp, and is also available with both gearboxes. The Golf SV (starting price £22,780) is also available with the 2.0 litre turbo diesel, which offers 150hp. Don’t forget, the Match is also available as an estate (starting price £22,420) as well – the engine choices mirror that of the hatch.
The new Volkswagen Golf Match is on sale now, with prices starting from £20,545.
