VW introduces 2016 Golf Match Edition in the UK, priced from £19,840

Article by Andrew Christian, on November 14, 2015

Looking for a Volkswagen Golf that features a level of specification higher than a typical Golf? Well, VW has good news – the Golf Match BlueMotion Edition and the Golf Match Edition.

Starting off, the Golf Match Edition builds on the current features of the seventh-generation VW Golf, adding high-end equipment as standard like Discover Navigation with Car-Net Guide and Inform, and Winter Pack. The total value of the additional features and equipment would reach £1,100, if they are availed of separately.

But bundled together, customers only have to add £100. Thus, the three-door Golf Match BlueMotion Edition powered by 1.0 115PS TSI engine in six-speed manual has a starting price of £19,840 (OTR RRP).

On the other hand, the three-door Golf Match Edition with 1.4-liter TSI 125 PS BlueMotion Technology in five-speed manual has a base price of £20,400 (OTR RRP). So, what can a customer get from a VW Golf Match? While it can’t be denied that the Golf Match was one of the most highly specified models in its class, it features more.

It is already fitted, as standard, with front fog lights, front and rear parking sensors, and a mirror pack that includes automatically folding door mirrors with puddle lights and reverse-activated dipping. Smart 16-inch ‘Dover’ alloys is also standard.

Added as new standard feature on the Golf Match Edition is the Discover Navigation system that includes a 6.5-inch color touch-screen that serves as control area for navigation, CD and radio functions. The vehicle’s Discover Navigation system is already preloaded with European navigation data.

It features two map view options, and three calculated routes (Fast, Short, Eco). The Discover Navigation system also provides dynamic navigation based on TMC live traffic updates, branded points of interest and Traffic Sign display.

Moreover, the system features Car-Net Guide and Inform online services, which fuse functions like Online Traffic Information, News and Weather updates, Personal Point Of Interest and Fuel Info and Parking Info.

Already featured as standard on the Golf Match Edition are technologies like Driver Alert System, PreCrash preventive occupant protection, ACC Adaptive Cruise Control with Front Assist and City Emergency Braking, and Driver Profile Selection.

It also features automatically dimming rear-view mirror, automatic wipers, dusk sensor for automatic driving lights, parking sensors, front fog lights, mirror pack and alloy wheels. Safety is optimized by the standard seven airbags -- including a driver’s knee airbag -- installed on all Golf models.

Other safety features include ABS with ESC, XDS electronic differential lock, and an automatic post-collision braking system. The VW Golf Match Edition also features an Isofix preparation for two rear child seats.

The new Golf Match Edition is also laden with elements like an eight-speaker multimedia entertainment system, Bluetooth telephone preparation and audio streaming. Air conditioning and a Stop/Start system with battery regeneration are also standard on the model.

Of course, there are available features that customers could opt for like DCC Dynamic Chassis Control, High Beam Assist, Park Assist, keyless entry, a panoramic sunroof and a rear-view camera.

In terms of power source, the Golf Match BlueMotion Edition is powered by a 1.0-liter TSI 115 PS engine mated to either a six-speed manual transmission or the seven-speed DSG. This engine, when mated with any of the gearboxes, returns 65.7 mpg combined.

On the other hand, the Golf Match Edition is available with three engine choices, each could be mated to either one of the two transmission options -- six-speed manual or seven-speed DSG gearboxes.

Customers can have their Golf Match Edition powered by a 1.4-litre TSI 125 PS engine (54.3 to 56.5 mpg combined); a 1.6-liter TDI 110 PS BlueMotion Technology engine with (72.4 to 74.3 mpg combined); or a 2.0-liter TDI 150 PS BlueMotion Technology (62.8 to 68.9 mpg). All these engines comply with the latest EU6 emissions standards.

Press Release

LUXURY AS STANDARD: THE NEW VOLKSWAGEN GOLF MATCH EDITION

Volkswagen is sharpening the appeal of the already generously equipped Golf with the announcement of the highly specified Golf Match BlueMotion Edition, and Golf Match Edition, priced from £19,840 (OTR RRP).

Building on the stylish looks and renowned reliability of the current Golf line-up – the seventh iteration of the brand’s iconic family hatchback – the new Golf 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. The additions offer more than £1,100 in customer value if specified separately, but at a cost of just £100.

Buyers can, therefore, get behind the wheel of the new Golf Match BlueMotion Edition 1.0 115PS TSI six-speed manual three-door from £19,840 (OTR RRP). The Golf Match Edition, meanwhile, is available from £20,400 (OTR RRP) in 1.4-litre TSI 125 PS BlueMotion Technology five-speed manual three-door model form.

While the Golf Match was already one of the most comprehensively specified vehicles in its class with standard features including 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 – the new model builds on that solid foundation still further.

Smart 16-inch ‘Dover’ alloys continue to distinguish the new car, while the Discover Navigation system now fitted as standard includes a 6.5-inch colour touch-screen control system for navigation, CD and radio functions. This boasts preloaded 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, and also features Car-Net Guide and Inform online services.

The Car-Net Guide and Inform system neatly combines engaging functions such as Online Traffic Information, Personal Point Of Interest, News and Weather updates, and Fuel Info and Parking Info.

This suite of hi-tech features comes in addition to the Golf Match Edition’s standard ACC Adaptive Cruise Control with Front Assist and City Emergency Braking, Driver Alert System, PreCrash preventive occupant protection, Driver Profile Selection, automatic wipers, an automatically dimming rear-view mirror and dusk sensor (automatic driving lights); and of course the aforementioned alloy wheels, parking sensors, front fog lights and mirror pack.

Meanwhile all Golf models come as standard with seven airbags, including a driver’s knee airbag; ABS with ESC, XDS electronic differential lock; an automatic post-collision braking system and Isofix preparation for two rear child seats.

Customers are able to add to that impressive roster of standard equipment with hi-tech options include High Beam Assist, Park Assist, DCC Dynamic Chassis Control, a rear-view camera, keyless entry and a panoramic sunroof.

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 is available with a 1.4-litre TSI 125 PS engine with six-speed manual or seven-speed DSG gearboxes returning 54.3 to 56.5 mpg combined; a 1.6-litre TDI 110 PS BlueMotion Technology engine with five-speed manual or seven-speed DSG gearbox returning 72.4 to 74.3 mpg; or a 2.0-litre TDI 150 PS BlueMotion Technology unit with six-speed manual or six-speed DSG gearbox returning 62.8 to 68.9 mpg.
