New VW Golf to cost less than old one
Volkswagen has revealed prices for the all-new Golf 7, which is available to order from 18 October – and the line-up shows the new entry-level car costs LESS than the old one.
The new VW Golf 7 will cost from £16,330 for a 1.2 TSI 85 S 3dr. This compares to the £16,425 entry-level price of the current Golf 6.
Volkswagen hasn’t stripped back equipment to achieve this lower entry price, either: all new Golf come with seven airbags, ABS, XDS electronic differential lock, DAB stereo with colour touchscreen, Bluetooth and VW’s Climatic semi-auto air con.
Sitting above base S trim is the SE line, which adds alloy wheels, leather multi-function steering wheel, automatic light, wipers and dimming rear-view mirror plus posher seat trim and stainless steel dash trim.
The SE also includes VW’s Automatic Distance Control feature as standard. This can automatically bring the vehicle to a complete stop if it detects a collision, and will prime the vehicle’s safety systems if it reckons the impact will be a big one. A standard Driver Alert System will hopefully mean it shouldn’t be needed…
Above SE is GT trim, which includes bigger alloys, Cherry Red rear lights, dark rear glass, Alcantara seats, parking sensors and ambient lighting. Impressively, GT models also get standard sat nav.
Four petrol and two diesel engines are offered from launch: super-eco Bluemotion and hot GTI models follow later next year.
Deliveries of the new Golf begin in January 2013 – and MSN Cars is driving the new model this weekend. Come back early next week for our first-drive impressions of Europe’s best selling car…
