New Volkswagen Golf Quotes

Performance

Famous for its handling, the Golf offers great responsive, well-weighted steering and agility. Every engine is turbocharged, starting with the 1.2-litre petrols in either 84bhp or 103bhp. The 1.4-litre petrols offer 120hbp and 138bhp and strong response, with the latter shutting off two cylinders when possible to save fuel. The 1.6-litre diesel engine offers great performance with good economy. The choice of manual and DSG automatic gearboxes both offer smooth precise transitions. The 1.6 diesel gets 103bhp and is a popular choice while the 148bhp 2.0-litre offers a smooth drive.

Running Costs

The 108bhp 1.6-litre TDI BlueMotion engine represents the best economy returning 88.3mpg having the bonus qualifying for the lowest tax band thanks to low emissions of 85g/km of CO2. The entry level 1.2-litre TSI petrol achieves an impressive 57.6mpg and emits 113g/km of CO2. The fact that performance Golf models are even cheap to run makes the choice even more difficult. The Golf GTD returns 67.3mpg with CO2 emissions of 109g/km and the GTI gets a special mention for 47.1mpg and 140g/km of CO2 emissions.

Equipment

Coming in trim levels S, BlueMotion, SE, GT, GTD and GTI, the Golf is increasingly well equipped up and down the range. Every model is kitted out with DAB radio, Bluetooth and air conditioning. The mid-level SE comes with smart interior trim, alloy wheels, adaptive cruise control and automatic lights and wipers. The sportier styling of the GT cars also includes sat-nav. The full set of equipment details is available in the brochure which you can order through Askaprice.com. The Golf’s list price is between £16,775 and £26,780 depending on specification.
