Golf Match replay
4 October 2006

Remember the Golf Match? VW's revived the name of its favourite old special-edition, and it's got nothing to do with Europe winning the Ryder Cup last month.The new Golf Match replaces the old SE, and VW reckons two out of every three UK Golfs will be one. For £380 less than the SE, you get £720 worth of extra equipment, including 15in alloys, body-coloured bumpers and a three-spoke leather multifunction steering wheel.

The £14,995 Match also has a cable, hidden in the centre armrest, to link MP3 music players to the sound system. Engine choices are the 113bhp 1.6-litre petrol and 103bhp 1.9-litre diesel, the latter costing £15,885. The Match is on sale now.

    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
  • Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer
    First Drive
    13 October 2017
    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
