VW Golf Match (2010) launchesThu, 20 May 2010 00:00:00 -0700
The new VW Golf Match
At least the Volkswagen Golf Match makes sensible use of the pun, unlike the VW Touran Match we got last summer or the Tiguan Match that turned up a couple of weeks ago. And it looks like VW are intent on wiping out the SE trim across their range and replacing it with the ‘Match Moniker’.
This is much the same deal as we had with the Tiguan Match. The SE option gets binned and VW add a chunk of extra kit, call it the Match and charge a bit more. But assuming the extra kit floats your boat then the deal is a pretty good one all round.
The 2010 VW Golf Match gets a new set of 16″ alloys, leather multi-fundtion steerring wheel, DAB, Bluetooth, parking sensors and RCD 510 touchscreen stereo with six-disc CD autochanger. All of which is in addition to the existing SE spec which includes Climate, Cruises and iPod connectivity.
The extra cost of the Golf Match over the Golf SE is £300 and VW say the extra kit would cost you £1,600 if you’d specced it on the SE. As we said, if the kit floats your boat it’s a good buy.
The order book is now open for the VW Golf Match with first customer cars hitting at the end of June. Starting price is £17,730 for the 1.4-litre TSI three-door and you can bolt on 3 years servicing for £250.
Decent car. Decent spec. Decent price.
