VW has launched a new entry-level Golf Twist that will cost from just £12,995.
It is available to order now in three or five door guise and comes with more than £700 of additional standard equipment over the previous entry-level Golf, the S, on which it is based. That car costs from £14,880.
The five door version commands a £585 premium over the three door. Power comes from a 79bhp, 97lb ft, 1.4 petrol engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission. The Twist will accelerate to 62 mph from rest in 13.9 seconds and go on to a top speed of 107mph. It has combined economy of 44.1mpg and CO2 emissions of 149 g/km.
Standard equipment includes 16in Atlanta alloy wheels, an RCD 310 radio system with MDI multimedia connectivity and safety kit including ABS, ESP and seven airbags.
