Volkswagen's UK division has introduced a new "Match" trim level for the seventh generation Golf.

The UK-spec Golf is no longer available in the SE trim as this has been replaced with Match which brings additional equipment for the same money. It kicks off at 19,680 GBP for the three-door 1.4 TSI 122 PS BlueMotion model and comes as standard with front & rear parking sensors, 16-inch Dover alloys, front fog lights and automatically folding mirrors with puddle lights and reverse-activated dipping on the nearside.

Customers are also rewarded with ACC Adaptive Cruise Control (with Front Assist & City Emergency Braking), automatic wipers, automatically dimming rearview mirror, driver profile selection, automatic headlights and a PreCrash preventive occupant protection system.

The 1.4 TSI can be matched to a 6-speed manual or an optional 7-speed DSG while a more frugal engine offering is a 105 PS 1.6-liter TDI working with either a 5-speed manual or a 7-speed DSG. There's also a beefier 150 PS 2.0-liter TDI coupled to a 6-speed manual or an optional 6-speed DSG.

The most expensive Volkswagen Golf Match is the 2.0-liter TDI DSG five-door which will set you back 24,120 GBP. On top of that you can add optional goodies such as a DCC dynamic chassis control, park assist, high beam assist, rearview camera, panoramic sunroof, keyless entry and a Discover Pro navigation system packing an 8-inch touchscreen display.

Already available on order, the Golf Match will reach customers starting September.

Full pricing info can be found in the attached press release.
