Volkswagen Golf gains three plush run-out editions

VW has launched Match Edition, GT Edition and R-Line Edition versions of the current Golf, ahead of the Mk8 model’s arrival next year

In preparation for the launch of the eighth-generation Volkswagen Golf, the German brand issued the Mk7 variant with three run-out trim levels, called Match Edition, GT Edition and R-Line Edition. They replace the hatchback’s existing Match, GT and R-Line specifications, and add a range of extra equipment. Prices start from £22,135.

All three trim levels cost £400 more than the models they replace, but add £1,910 worth of optional extras. The three new trim levels receive two-zone climate control, LED headlights and Volkswagen’s “Winter Pack,” which features heated front seats, headlight washer jets and heated windscreen washer jets.

Volkswagen’s range-topping Golf R-Line Edition hatchback is priced from £27,030.

The R-Line Edition range tops out at £29,230 for the 148bhp 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel.

The Golf SV MPV is also part of the trim level update. Prices start from £25,030 for the least powerful Match Edition variant, climbing to £30,230 for the most potent GT Edition model.
