Volkswagen is set to introduce a long list of upgrades for its core models in the UK. New versions of the Polo, Golf, and Passat Saloon and Estate will be available to order from Volkswagen UK Retailers, with deliveries set to begin early in 2016.

Starting with the little ones, the Polo Match is replacing the popular SE trim. Available in three- and five-door bodystyles and with a broad range of engine and transmission options, the Polo Match adds more than £900-worth of extra equipment to Volkswagen’s perennially popular supermini.

Among the new standard-fit features on the Polo Match are cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, front fog lights with static cornering function, tinted rear windows and smart new 15-inch Stratford alloy wheels.  All this comes with a price rise of just £100, meaning the Polo Match is available to order from £12,735.

The Volkswagen Golf continues the 2016 momentum with the showroom debuts of the Golf GT Edition and Golf R-Line Edition.

The forthcoming Golf GT Edition replaces the GT trim level, and gains an additional £1,795 worth of equipment including 18-inch Durban alloy wheels, and panoramic sunroof. The new model is priced from £23,915 RRP OTR – just £300 more than the GT it replaces.

The new Golf R-Line Edition replaces the R-Line trim and, for an increase of £250, adds an additional £1,730-worth of equipment including larger 18-inch Serron alloys wheels and a panoramic sunroof.  The Golf R-Line Edition will be available to order from £24,860 and, as with the new GT Edition, is set to arrive in Volkswagen UK Retailer showrooms early in 2016.

Boosting the appeal of the Passat and Passat Estate is the debut of a revised SE Business trim level.

The SE Business designation – which is enhanced at the same time as the SE spec is removed from the range – offers Discover Navigation, front fog lights, electric folding door mirrors and tinted rear windows – together amounting to £555 of value – for just £100 more than the outgoing SE models.
