New Volkswagen Golf Match edition announced

Well-specced Volkswagen Golf Match edition arrives to replace the outgoing SE and SE Nav trim levels

Ahead of the all-new Golf’s release next year, Volkswagen has announced a run-out edition for the current generation hatch called the Match. The model replaces the Golf SE and SE Nav editions, adding more standard equipment for a reduced cost. Prices start at £20,545, and deliveries are expected to commence next month. 

The VW Golf Match receives the standard equipment from the SE and SE Nav trim levels, including an eight-inch touchscreen display with DAB radio and sat-nav, adaptive cruise control, Apple Car-Play and Android Auto. In addition, the Match will come with new 16-inch alloy wheels, front fog lamps and rear privacy glass.

The Golf Match will be offered in two body-styles: hatchback (£20,545) and estate (£22,420). If you want something even more practical the Golf SV MPV is also available as a Match edition (£22,780).

The current range of Golf engines will be available in the Match, starting with a 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol and climbing to a 1.6-litre four-cylinder diesel. The range-topping Golf SV will also be available with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel.

All engines will be available with either a six-speed manual, or seven-speed automatic gearbox with the exception of the 2.0-litre diesel in the SV, which is only fitted with a seven-speed DSG. On average, the DSG auto costs around £2,000 more than the manual across the range.

Elsewhere, Volkswagen has also updated the Golf GTI Performance and R models with standard fit keyless-entry, rear-view camera and lane-assist.

The Mk8 Golf offers cleaner engines, an updated interior and the latest on-board tech, but it can’t quite reach the top of the class.
