The new trim level comes with 16-inch ‘Woodstock’ alloy wheels, tinted rear windows, front fog lights and Discover Navigation as standard and, according to the car firm’s UK chief of Marketing, Geraldine Ingham, “strengthen the Golf’s already compelling appeal”.
Volkswagen is offering a choice of different engine options for the Match Edition: the 115 PS (113 hp / 84 kW) 1.0-liter TSI and 130 PS (128 hp / 95 kW) and 150 PS (148 hp / 110 kW) 1.5-liter TSI petrol units, as well as the 115 PS (113 hp / 84 kW) 1.6-liter TDI and 150 PS (148 hp / 110 kW) 2.0-liter TDI diesels.
