Uk adds new trim level to range; adds extra kit

The Volkswagen Golf range has a new trim level, with the SE Golf being replaced with a better-equipped Match model.

Although it's sticker price is £300 more than the SE, with prices starting at £17,730, VW says the Match comes with £1600 worth of added equipment.

This includes a different design of alloy wheel, leather multi-function steering wheel, digital radio, Bluetooth mobile phone connectivity, front and rear parking sensors and a touchscreen stereo system with six-CD changer.

That's in addition to all of the features that were standard on the SE car including air conditioning, alarm, cruise control, seven airbags and stability control.

Buyers can choose from 121bhp 1.4-litre petrol, 104bhp 1.6-litre diesel or 138bhp 2.0-litre diesel engines.

I think it is a rival actually - just not an obvious one ! I had a 2.0d GT on order - but as they kept putting the delivery date back, I cancelled and got a Yeti instead.

I think the Yeti is more of a Cross-over/ Small MPV/ 4x4

Its a fine car, but not really a Golf rival. That would be the Octavia, which I presume will also get this new lineup of TSIs and TDIs before long.
