With the introduction of the new Golf Match, Volkswagen is extending the Golf hatchback family, boasting more specification than the SE model it replaces at no extra cost.
The additional features offered in the Match include front and rear parking sensors, front fog lights and a mirror pack consisting of automatically-folding door mirrors with puddle lights and reverse-activated dipping on the nearside.
New 16-inch ‘Dover’ alloys distinguish the Match.
Upgrading from S to Match also includes ACC Adaptive Cruise Control (with Front Assist and City Emergency Braking), a Driver Alert System, and dusk sensor (automatic driving lights).
The GT model comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, lowered sports suspension, ‘cherry red’ rear light clusters and heat-insulating dark-tinted rear glass.
Inside the GT are gloss black dash and door inserts, Alcantara and cloth sports seats, LED reading lights, ambient lighting and the Discover Navigation media and navigation system with 5.8-inch colour touchscreen.
