Volkswagen unveils new trims for Polo, Golf, Passat Saloon and Estate

Article by Christian Andrei, on January 21, 2016

Volkswagen has unveiled a slew of upgraded trim levels for a number of its nameplates, particularly for its Polo, Golf, and Passat Saloon and Estate models. In lieu of the SE trim comes the new Polo Match, which can be availed in either three doors or five doors.

Available in several engine-transmission combos, the Polo Match now boasts of over £900 worth of extra equipment. For instance, the VW Polo Match now comes, as standard, with a number of new features like front and rear parking sensors, cruise control and front fog lights with static cornering function.

It also comes with tinted rear windows as well as smart new 15-inch Stratford alloy wheels. With all these new standard features, the Polo Match can be availed from just £12,735 RRP OTR, or equivalent to a price hike of just £100 OTR over the SE trim.

On the other hand, the seventh generation Volkswagen Golf can soon be availed in two new variants -- Golf GT Edition and Golf R-Line Edition. Replacing the GT trim level, the Golf GT Edition features additional equipment worth £1,795.

Included as standard on the Golf GT Edition are a panoramic sunroof and 18-inch Durban alloy wheels. At £23,915 RRP OTR, the Golf GT Edition represents a price increase of just £300 over the GT trim. Replacing the R-Line trim is the new Golf R-Line Edition, which comes with a panoramic sunroof and 18-inch Serron alloys wheels as standard.

Interested buyers could avail of the Golf R-Line Edition from just £24,860 RRP OTR, or an increase of just £250 OTR over the R-Line trim. Total added value amounts to £1,730. Both the Golf GT Edition and Golf R-Line Edition will arrive in Volkswagen UK Retailer showrooms in early 2016.

On the other hand, VW has revamped and enhanced revised SE Business trim level for its Passat and Passat Estate – making these models more stylish and giving them more value.

Now, the SE Business trim level comes with additional £555 worth of standard features like Discover Navigation, electric folding door mirrors, front fog lights and tinted rear windows. However, the SE Business trim level is priced at just £100 OTR more than the outgoing SE models.

Press Release


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 UK Retailers 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 OTR, meaning the Polo Match is available to order now from £12,735 RRP OTR.

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 £23,915 RRP OTR – 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 OTR, 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 £24,860 RRP OTR 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 OTR more than the outgoing SE models.
