The VW Golf is the quintessential middle-class England car. The ever-popular hatchback is undergoing yet another change, with the new model just arriving in showrooms across the UK. Customers should be getting their new Golf circa April-May of this year if they have pre-ordered a new model.
What’s new with the Golf? A new Infotainment system with standard touchscreen and optional gesture control plus an active info display and wireless charging should make the car even more practical. For the technology-generation, the new Car-Net will allow the vehicle to connect with the internet. Add to this enhanced assistance systems, which will include emergency assist (which detects issue when the driver does not), trailer assist (making the manoeuvre of a trailer easier) and traffic jam assist to help with less stressful stop and go conditions. The MK 7.5 will also see the introduction of a punchy 1.5 turbo petrol engine, which offer nearly 150hp; low mileage users will be able to enjoy a golf outside of the flasgship diesel derivatives. That being said, our higher-mileage users can still enjoy the 1.6 diesel 110ps engine; ideal for the company car driver!
Our personal leasing customer based in York recently took delivery of the existing, or pre-current, model on a new 17 plate. The awesome car shown here is the Volkswagen Golf Diesel Hatchback 1.6 TDI 110 GT Edition 5dr Manual based on the following specification:
· Limestone Grey
· Metallic Paint
· Alcantara/cloth – Titan Black
· 18″ Marseille Alloy Wheels
This GT Edition is one of the ideal cars to consider in the midsized hatchback sector. The standard specification incudes Discover Navigation, 19” Durban alloy wheels, 8 speakers, sports seats, driver and passenger lumbar support, alcantara/cloth upholstery, air conditioning, rain sensing wipers, Bluetooth, adaptive cruise control, LED internal lights, pre-crash system, steel spare wheel and daytime running lights.
From a technical perspective, with a C02 measure at 101g/km, 72.4mpg and 110ps, this is more affordable company car option. Please note that unlike some of the other VW products, this does not have long life servicing – intervals are every 12 months or 10,00 miles for this. This means a funder-maintained agreement, including servicing, tyres and breakdown recovery, might be a consideration on your contract?
