The new Volkswagen Golf is lighter, safer, more advanced, more spacious, more efficient and better equipped than ever before
Prices for the new Volkswagen Golf have been revealed, UK prices starting at just £16,330. The new Volkswagen Golf is lighter, safer, more advanced, more spacious, more efficient and better equipped than ever before.
The petrol engine range starts with a four-cylinder 1.2-litre TSI unit producing 85 PS, rising via a 1.2-litre TSI 105 PS and a 1.4-litre TSI 122 PS motor to the all-new 1.4-litre TSI 140 PS engine with Active Cylinder Technology. This helps to create an extremely efficient engine capable of 60.1 mpg (combined cycle) and 110 g/km (when fitted with a seven-speed DSG gearbox), thanks to the ability to deactivate the central two cylinders under light loads.
The two diesel engines at launch are a 1.6-litre TDI 105 PS and a new 2.0-litre TDI 150 PS unit. Both feature the latest common rail diesel technology for maximum efficiency. All new Golf models both diesel and petrol come with a Stop/Start system as standard, along with battery regeneration.
Optional equipment includes high beam assist, lane assist, park assist (which is able to parallel-park the Golf in spaces only 80 cm longer than the car itself in addition to providing automatic end-on parking), ACC adaptive chassis control and a rear-view camera. Drivers can also select from a choice of alternative alloy wheels up to 18 inches in diameter, bi-xenon headlights, ‘Vienna’ leather upholstery (optionally with 12-way electrically adjustable front seats), 2Zone climate control, the Discover Pro navigation system with 8-inch colour touchscreen, keyless entry and a panoramic sunroof, among other options.
