Volkswagen reveals upgraded Match Edition

Volkswagen has unveiled a new Golf Match and Match BlueMotion Editions.

The new Match Edition models add high-end equipment as standard including Discover Navigation with Car-Net Guide and Inform, and Winter Pack. The new cars arrive with an 'even higher' level of specification than the Golf Match they replace - with the additions offering more than £1,100 in value if specified separately, but at a cost of £100.

A 1.0 115PS TSI six-speed manual three-door Golf Match BlueMotion Edition therefore costs from £19,840 OTR. The Golf Match Edition, meanwhile, is available from £20,400 OTR in 1.4-litre TSI 125 PS BlueMotion Technology five-speed manual three-door model form.

Standard features include front and rear parking sensors, front fog lights and a mirror pack - which consists of automatically-folding door mirrors with puddle lights and reverse-activated dipping on the nearside, while the new models add 16-inch 'Dover' alloys and the Discover Navigation system. This includes a 6.5-inch colour touch-screen control system for navigation, CD and radio functions. Preloaded with European navigation data, two map view options, three calculated routes (Fast, Short, Eco), dynamic navigation based on TMC live traffic updates, branded points of interest and Traffic Sign display it also features Car-Net Guide and Inform online services.

The Golf Match BlueMotion Edition is offered with a 1.0-litre TSI 115 PS engine in six-speed manual or seven-speed DSG form, both returning 65.7 mpg combined. The Golf Match Edition with a 1.4-litre TSI 125 PS engine mated to a six-speed manual or seven-speed DSG gearboxes returns 54.3 to 56.5 mpg combined.

Available to order now, first deliveries are expected in January 2016.
