In preparation for the launch of the eighth-generation Volkswagen Golf, the German brand issued the Mk7 variant with three run-out trim levels, called Match Edition, GT Edition and R-Line Edition. They replace the hatchback’s existing Match, GT and R-Line specifications, and add a range of extra equipment. Prices start from £22,135.

All three trim levels cost £400 more than the models they replace, but add £1,910 worth of optional extras. The three new trim levels receive two-zone climate control, LED headlights and Volkswagen’s “Winter Pack,” which features heated front seats, headlight washer jets and heated windscreen washer jets.

Best hatchbacks to buy now

The mid-range Volkswagen Golf GT Edition, when fitted with the brand’s 132bhp turbocharged 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine, is priced from £25,260. Prices climb to £29,435 for the Golf GT Edition Estate, when it’s equipped with the brand’s 148bhp 2.0-litre four-cylinder TDI diesel unit.

Volkswagen’s range-topping Golf R-Line Edition hatchback is priced from £27,030. Like the firm’s outgoing R-Line model, it’s fitted with a 148bhp turbocharged 1.5-litre four-cylinder EVO TSI petrol engine. The R-Line Edition range tops out at £29,230 for the 148bhp 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel.

The Golf SV MPV is also part of the trim level update. Prices start from £25,030 for the least powerful Match Edition variant, climbing to £30,230 for the most potent GT Edition model.

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.
