VOLKSWAGEN is bringing back the Match trim line to multiple models across its range.
Match trims have long appeared in the Volkswagen line up with the badge becoming synonymous with improved specification and value for money.
They are returning now across 10 Volkswagen models including, for the first time, electric vehicles.
The Polo, T-Cross, Taigo, T-Roc, Tiguan and Touran are all now available in Match trim, adding significant levels of equipment compared with Life models - or the SE Family for the Touran.
Match trims are also being introduced on the ID.3, ID.4 and ID.5 come with added equipment and reduced on-the-road prices.
The Match trim now also includes the new ID.7 to coincide with the arrival of the flagship Volkswagen EV in UK showrooms.
"We have a rich heritage with Match trims, which have always represented great value for money for our customers," said Rod McLeod, director of Volkswagen UK. "Launching them now across 10 models in a variety of segments - including electric - gives people lots of choice and will hopefully help us to build on our success as the UK's best-selling new-car brand."
The Match specification sits above Life trim for Volkswagen ICE models and costs from £175 to £705 more than the lower trim but comes with additional equipment including larger alloy wheels, metallic paint, tinted windows, rear view camera and keyless entry.
On VW EVs Match models include metallic paint, electric tailgate, exterior pack and assistance pack, but on-the-road prices are reduced by up to around £4,300.
A new entry-level ID.3 Pro Essential trim is also now available at £35,700 on the road. The new ID.3 Match trims replace the previous Pro and Pro S, and an additional Pro S Essential trim is also now available for £39,190.
For the ID.4, the Pro Match and Pro 4M Match replace the previous Life and Style trims, and a new entry-level Pure Match trim is available for £42,640.
The ID.7 Pro Match replaces the previously announced Launch Edition; it adds metallic paint and an exterior pack and is priced from £51,550.
