The new Match trim level replaces SE and SE Navigation specifications, with extra equipment on top of those models including new alloy wheels, front fog lights, a ‘Discover’ satellite navigation system and tinted rear windows.
While it might look more expensive on paper than the SE Nav, the cost of the extra equipment means that it works out £300 to £400 cheaper, depending on the variant.
The Match is offered with two turbocharged petrol engines – an entry-level 113bhp 1.0-litre and a 1.5-litre with either 128bhp or 148bhp.
As for the diesel engines, you can have the Match with a 113bhp 1.6-litre and a 148bhp 2.0-litre unit.
Geraldine Ingham, head of marketing at Volkswagen UK, said: “The added value of the expanded range of standard-fit equipment in the new Match editions further strengthens the Golf’s already compelling appeal.
“The Golf is hugely popular here. Indeed, it is the second-best selling car in the UK in 2018 and offering extra value through these equipment upgrades is sure to make it even more attractive.”
