Volkswagen is gearing up for a busy start to 2016 with a raft of trim upgrades across the brand’s core models. New versions of the Polo, Golf, and Passat Saloon and Estate are available to order from Volkswagen dealers now, with deliveries set to begin early in the New Year.
Leading the charge is the generously-equipped Polo Match. Replacing the popular SE trim the new Polo Match – available in three- and five-door bodystyles and with a broad range of engine and transmission options – adds more than £900-worth of extra equipment to Volkswagen’s perennially popular supermini. Among the new standard-fit features on the Polo Match are cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, front fog lights with static cornering function, tinted rear windows and smart new 15-inch Stratford alloy wheels. All this comes with a price rise of just £100, meaning the Polo Match 1.4 TDI with 74bhp diesel engine is available to order now from £14,945 for the three-door and £15,575 for the five-door.
The iconic Volkswagen Golf, now in its seventh generation, continues the 2016 momentum with the imminent showroom debuts of the Golf GT Edition and Golf R-Line Edition. The forthcoming Golf GT Edition replaces the GT trim level, and gains an additional £1,795 worth of equipment including 18-inch Durban alloy wheels, and panoramic sunroof. The new model is priced from £23,055 – just £300 more than the GT it replaces. Meanwhile, the exciting new Golf R-Line Edition replaces the R-Line trim and, for an increase of just £250, adds an additional £1,730-worth of equipment including larger 18-inch Serron alloys wheels and a panoramic sunroof. The Golf R-Line Edition will be available to order from £25,365, and, as with the new GT Edition, is set to arrive in Volkswagen UK Retailer showrooms early in 2016.
Boosting the appeal of the multi-award-winning Passat and Passat Estate is the debut of a revised SE Business trim level which adds even more style, and value, to the premium-focused class leader. The SE Business designation – which is enhanced at the same time as the SE spec is removed from the range – offers attractive, high-spec features as standard such as Discover Navigation, front fog lights, electric folding door mirrors and tinted rear windows – together amounting to £555 of value – for just £100 more than the outgoing SE models. Prices kick off at £23,560.
