VW Golf Match is back

Volkswagen has replaced its SE VW Golf with a better-equipped Match model.

Although it's 300 more than the SE, with prices starting at 17,730, it comes with 1600 worth of added equipment, including a different design of alloy wheel, leather multi-function steering wheel, digital radio, Bluetooth mobile phone connectivity, front and rear parking sensors and a touchscreen stereo system with six-CD changer.

That's in addition to all of the features that were standard on the SE car including air conditioning, alarm, cruise control, seven airbags and stability control.

The Match is available as an efficient 138bhp BlueMotion Technology model, which returns 68.9mpg on the combined cycle. The other engines which the SE was previously available with are also on offer.

Choose from a 121bhp 1.4-litre petrol, 104bhp 1.6-litre diesel or 138bhp 2.0-litre diesel.
