New Golf Plus on sale now

03 April 2009

New Golf Plus on sale now

   

Just a few days after the hot hatch versions of the Golf – the GTI and GTD – have broken cover, Volkswagen is releasing something even bigger: the new Golf Plus.

Pictures of the new car were revealed in December, showing the Golf Plus’s new ‘face’ with horizontal grille treatment and a new interior.  Now the car is ready to be ordered at Volkswagen Retailers across the UK with prices starting from just £14,410 (RRP on the road) for the entry-level model, the S 1.4-litre 80 PS.

The new Golf Plus is available with four engines: two petrol and two diesel.  These are the 1.4-litre 80 PS and 1.4-litre TSI 122 PS; plus 2.0-litre common rail TDI units with 110 and 140 PS.  A variety of transmission options, including Volkswagen’s seven-speed DSG gearbox, are also available, as detailed below.

Two trim levels are offered – just S and SE – keeping choice simple for buyers.  The entry-level S specification caters for buyers looking for all the qualities of a Golf, with extra space and flexible seating options at a competitive price.  Standard equipment includes air conditioning, a CD player, multi-function computer, electric windows and mirrors, body-coloured bumpers, side strips, mirrors and door handles and 15-inch steel wheels.  Of course, as you would expect from any car in the Golf family, the Golf Plus also has a comprehensive array of safety features including ABS, ESP, driver and front passenger’s whiplash-optimised head restraints and six airbags including deactivation switch for front passenger airbag.

Moving up to SE trim adds more comfort and convenience.  Standard for the first time on any car in the Volkswagen range is the latest generation of Park Assist.  This option also adds parking sensors, and using a series of these located at the front, rear and side of the car, plots the ideal manoeuvring path into a parallel space either to the right or left of the vehicle.  Unlike the Park Assist system which has been available for a while now, this version requires a parking space 20 per cent smaller than previously: this means it requires a space the size of the car plus 1.1 metres rather than the car plus 1.4 metres.  During the parking process the driver has no steering input, but is in control of the throttle and brake.  Buyers of the Golf Plus SE will also benefit from cruise control, a front centre armrest, leather steering wheel and 16-inch ‘Atlanta’ alloy wheels. 

The new Golf Plus is available to order now at Volkswagen Retailers across the UK, with the first cars arriving at the end of April.
