Volkswagen unveils new Golf Match

Volkswagen has extended its Golf line-up, with a brand new and better-equipped Match model.

The new car has a new SE trim level and features over £1,600 worth of additional equipment, but costs just £300 more than the outgoing model.

Aside from featuring a 140bhp BlueMotion Technology model for better performance, the Match also comes with the SE trim engines - a 1.4-litre TSI petrol with 122bhp and a 1.6-litre TDI with 105bhp.

Both the 1.4-litre TSI petrol and the 1.6-litre TDI are offered with Volkswagen's seven-speed DSG gearbox, while the 2.0-litre TDI is equipped with the six-speed DSG option.

The car sports SE specifications such as ESP, seven airbags, climatic air conditioning, alarm, cruise control and multi-device interface for connectivity to iPod or MP3 player.

Additionally, the Match boasts 16-inch alloy wheels, a leather multifunction steering wheel, DAB digital radio receiver, Bluetooth system, front and rear parking sensors and an RCD 510 touchscreen stereo with six-disc CD autochanger.

Three-years or 30,000-mile servicing is available for a £250 fixed price.

The 1.4-litre TSI three-door model comes with a starting price of £17,730 and is available for order now.
