THE Volkswagen Golf is now available with three new trim levels: Match Edition, GT Edition and R-Line Edition, all benefiting from a suite of extra equipment over the outgoing trims on which they are based.

They cost £400 more than the former versions - but come with extra standard equipment worth £1,910 when equipped individually.

The new trim levels add two-zone climate control in place of manual air conditioning, LED headlights and winter pack, including heated front seats.

The winter pack also adds headlight washers, heated windscreen washer jets and a low washer-fluid warning light which, combined with LED headlights, optimise visibility at all times - especially during winter months when road grime can obscure a driver's view.

Following Volkswagen UK tradition, Edition trim levels are introduced as a product nears the end of its current generation.

With the eighth-generation Golf nearing its global debut later this year, the Golf continues a 45-year run of popularity.

Dale Piper, golf product manager at Volkswagen UK, said: "Even though it was launched in 2012, the current, seventh-generation remains our best-selling car by a comfortable margin."

The extra trims are added just a few weeks after the brand announced a price drop for the e-Golf of £2,765, adding yet more affordability to this already wallet-friendly EV, which boasts ultra-low running costs by virtue of its all-electric powertrain.

Orders are now open for the enhanced Edition trims, with deliveries from October. Customers who ordered one of the three outgoing trims after 16 September will be automatically upgraded to Match Edition, GT Edition or R-Line Edition.
