Volkswagen U.K. has launched the Golf Estate Match Edition which adds more kit for only a minor premium.

The ever so popular Golf is getting ready to receive a mid-cycle facelift, but until that happens, VW is trying to maintain sales at a high level. That’s why the company’s U.K. division has decided to replace the SE trim with a new Match Edition adding a lot of kit for only a fraction of the regular costs. The Golf Estate Match Edition joins the namesake hatchback version which was launched in U.K. back in November 2015.

While the five-door hatch kicks off at £19,840, the more practical estate will set you back £22,045. It rides on 16-inch Dover wheels and comes with a lot of standard equipment, such as front fog lights, door mirror puddle lights, parking sensors, and a 6.5-inch Discover Navigation infotainment system with support for DAB digital radio and Bluetooth connectivity. On top of that, you’ll also get standard heated windscreen washer jets, headlight washers, heated front seats, and electrically-folding mirrors.

The good news is you only pay an extra £100 over the old SE trim and in return you’ll get £1,975 worth of extra kit.

In related news, the Performance Golf and Performance Golf Estate lineups (GTI, GTD, GTE, R and Alltrack models) now come as standard in U.K. with the 2Zone electronic air conditioning system. Moreover, the Golf Rs have gained standard heated front seats, Discover Navigation infotainment system, headlight washers, and heated windscreen washer jets.

The revised Golf range is now available across the U.K.
