Volkswagen Golf Match 2018: prices, specification and on sale date

New Volkswagen Golf Match edition replaces SE and SE Nav trims; on sale now priced from £20,545

This is the new Volkswagen Golf Match, a new addition to the Golf, Golf Estate and Golf SV ranges. It replaces the outgoing SE and SE Nav models and brings more standard equipment than those models offered. The VW Golf Match is available to order now, priced from £20,545 in three-door form with a 1.0-litre TSI petrol engine and a six-speed manual gearbox.

All Match models come as standard with new alloy wheels, front fog lights, sat-nav and tinted rear windows. These new features are included on top of the outgoing SE and SE Nav specification, which includes a leather steering wheel, an auto dimming rear view mirror and adaptive cruise control, plus Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

The Golf’s new trim level arrives as Volkswagen continues its development of the forthcoming all-new Mk8 model, which is due to be revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2019.

Volkswagen Golf Match engines and prices

The Volkswagen Golf Match is available with the usual engine choices – a 1.0-litre petrol with 113bhp, a 1.5-litre petrol with 128bhp or 148bhp, along with a 1.6-litre diesel with 113bhp. All engines are available with a six-speed manual or seven-speed DSG automatic, the latter being restricted to five-door models, though. The same engines are available across the Golf Estate and Golf SV ranges with some gearbox combination differences; the Golf SV is also available with a 148bhp 2.0-litre diesel engine.

Prices for the Golf Match hatchback range from £20,545 to £24,210 depending on engine and gearbox choice. A mid-range five-door Golf Match with the lower-powered 1.5-litre petrol and a six-speed manual gearbox costs £22,240, while the cheapest diesel-powered choice is the three-door 1.6-litre with a manual gearbox. It starts at £22,140.

The Volkwagen Golf Estate Match starts at £22,420 with the 113bhp 1.0-litre petrol, climbing to £25,410 for the 1.6-litre diesel with a DSG automatic gearbox. The Golf SV Match is slightly pricier, priced from £22,780 with a 1.0-litre petrol and manual gearbox. The most expensive is the 2.0-litre diesel with its standard automatic gearbox, starting at £27,470.
