Those interested can now order the seventh-generation Volkswagen Golf, with a starting price of £16,285 (RRP OTR). Prices could go as high as £24,880. VW boasts of the latest Golf as lighter, safer and more advanced, as well as more spacious, more efficient and better equipped than its previous generations.

The Golf could be availed in the United Kingdom in three trim levels: S, SE and GT. Buyers could expect two more trim levels in 2013 -- GTI and BlueMotion models. The latest Golf, either in three- or five-door form, could be powered by any of the available engines -- four petrol and two diesels. The petrol engine range starts with a four-cylinder 1.2-litre TSI unit producing 85 PS, followed by a 1.2-litre TSI 105 PS and a 1.4-litre TSI 122 PS motor.

Also available is the 1.4-litre TSI engine with 140 PS of output, and is endowed Active Cylinder Technology, allowing to return 60.1 mpg (combined cycle) and 110 g/km (with DSG gearbox). The Active Cylinder Technology gives the Golf the ability to deactivate two cylinders under light loads. The diesel engines range consists of the 1.6-litre TDI 105 PS and a new 2.0-litre TDI 150 PS unit.

Both engines boast of the latest common rail diesel technology for maximum efficiency.  All new Golf models, both diesel and petrol, are fitted with the Stop/Start system as standard, along with battery regeneration.

Transmission options include five- and six-speed manuals, and six- and seven-speed DSG units, depending on the engines’ power and torque outputs. All Golf models feature seven airbags, including a driver’s knee airbag, five three-point seatbelts, ABS with ESP, XDS electronic differential lock as well as Isofix preparation for two rear child seats.

The base Golf features an entry-level Composition Media system includes a 5.8-inch colour touchscreen, DAB digital radio, a CD player, MDI interface (for connecting iPod or MP3 player), Bluetooth telephone preparation and audio streaming and eight speakers.  Also coming as standard is ‘Climatic’ semi-automatic air conditioning.
