Prices and specs for new VW Golf announced

Date: 05 February 2020   |   Author: Illya Verpraet

Volkswagen has announced prices and equipment for the new VW Golf, which starts at £23,875 for a 130hp petrol Golf Life.

Orders open today for VW's popular hatchback. For the moment, just two equipment grades are available: Life and Style, with the sporty R-Line to be added later. 

The two four-cylinder petrols (130hp and 150hp) and the lower-powered diesel (115hp) come as Life models and with a 6-speed manual gearbox. The 150hp diesel is only available with the Style equipment grade and with a 7-speed DSG.

The 1.0-litre petrol engines and the mild hybrid versions of the other petrol engines will become available later, as will two plug-in hybrid versions, R and GTI hot hatch versions, and an estate.

Style grade features 16in wheels, LED headlights, front and rear parking sensors, cloth seats with lumbar support and optional keyless entry.

Upgrade to Life and you get the upgraded 10in infotainment system with navigation, a 10in digital driver display, a three-year subscription to VW's connectivity suite that includes in-car wi-fi, wireless phone charging, a host of active safety features, 17in wheels, upgraded headlights, velour sport comfort seats, and three-zone climate control.

On both equipment grades, there are a number of additional options, such as adaptive dampers (£950) and a head-up display (£625).
