Volkswagen Golf prices
Volkswagen has confirmed that the Mk 6 Golf will start from £13,150 for the base 79bhp 1.4 S model when it goes on sale in January next year, an increase of £870 on the current entry-level model.
The range-topping 138bhp GT TDI five-door will set you back substantially more, at £20,980. The new GTi will join the range later in 2009.
Other petrol engines available from launch include the naturally aspirated 1.6-litre petrol, which will start at £14,080, and the 1.4-litre TSI in 120bhp and 158bhp tunes.
The lower-powered TSI will cost from £14,830 in base ‘S’ trim, whilst the higher-powered TSI is only available in the range-topping Golf GT and will set you back £18,400.
Diesel units start from £15,800 for the 109bhp 2.0-litre turbocharged oil-burner, whilst the same engine in 138bhp tune is only available in SE and GT forms and will cost from £17,875.
Even the base Volkswagen Golf S gets ESP, seven airbags, climate control and electrically heated and adjustable door mirrors.
SE adds an upgraded stereo, iPod connectivity, cruise control, 16-inch alloys and automatic windscreen wipers and headlights. Opting for the top-end GT trim gets you sports suspension, Alcantara sports seats and a multifunction steering wheel.
