Trim level

GTD BlueLine
Gets all the same kit at GTD trim save for smaller alloy wheels in the name of lower CO2 emissions and better fuel economy.
R
The range-topping Golf Estate gets all the GTD’s upgrades, including sports suspension and sporty looks inside and out. It also comes with a barnstorming 306bhp 2.0-litre turbocharged engine and quick-shifting DSG automatic gearbox. It’s expensive, though.
GTD
On top of GT trim on which it’s based, GTD comes with sill extensions, headlight washers, LED headlights, lowered, sports suspension, a honeycomb front grille, heated front seats, heated windscreen, dual-zone climate control and a 12.3in digital instrument display.
GT
This sportier trim offers 17in alloy wheels, sports suspension, sports seats and a performance monitor that includes a lap timer and G-meter. Other additions are privacy glass and interior ambient lighting.
Our pick
SE
SE adds 16in alloy wheels, front-seat lumbar adjustment, a rear-seat armrest, a ski hatch and a leather-trimmed steering wheel. And it adds gadgets such as Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink smartphone mirroring, automatic lights and wipers, front and rear parking sensors, power-folding door mirrors, adaptive cruise control and automatic emergency city braking. SE Nav is even better, coming with sat-nav, and would be our pick.
S
Entry-level S trim isn’t lavishly equipped but does come with trinkets including air conditioning, four electric windows, height-adjustable front seats, a front centre armrest, a DAB radio, Bluetooth and an 8.0in colour touchscreen, but you have to put up with wheel trims instead of alloy wheels.
