New Volkswagen Golf Priced From £16,330

Volkswagen has revealed prices for the all-new seventh-generation Golf. The new car is lighter, safer, more spacious, more efficient, better equipped than previous generation models and also cheaper than its predecessor. UK prices start a £16,330 and from launch the new Golf will be offered in three trim levels: S, SE and GT. The GTI and BlueMotion models will join the line-up in 2013.

The petrol engine range includes a four-cylinder 84bhp 1.2-litre TSI unit, 103bhp 1.2-litre TSI, a 120bhp 1.4-litre TSI and an all-new 138bhp 1.4-litre TSI with Active Cylinder Technology, that deactivates the central two cylinders under light loads.

Two diesels are offered from launch: 103bhp 1.6-litre TDI and a new 148bhp 2.0-litre TDI.

Both diesel and petrol units come with a Stop/Start system as standard, along with battery regeneration. Depending on the engine, gearboxes include five- and six-speed manuals, and six- and seven-speed DSG units.
