New VW Golf arrives this week, drive away from only $23,990

THE improved Mk 7.5 Volkswagen Golf goes on sale next week with eight versions of the hatch and six wagons.  

And highlighting the competitiveness of the quality-packed small car market, VW is launching the updated model with sharp drive-away pricing from the outset.  

The entry-level Golf 7.5 110TSI hatch manual has an RRP of $23,990, but Volkswagen is offering it for the same price drive away, effectively eliminating your on-road charges.

The equipment list has grown in this base model, including a more powerful 1.4-litre turbo engine (110kW/250Nm), city speed autonomous emergency braking, cruise control, eight-inch infotainment screen with Android/Apple smartphone mirroring and seven airbags. A six-speed manual is standard; the seven-speed dual-clutch auto adds $2500.  

The Trendline adds auto lights and wipers, front and rear parking sensors and a fold-out rear armrest with cupholders for $24,990 (or $25,490 drive away).  

The higher-specification Golf Comfortline and Highline models come exclusively with a seven-speed DSG automatic and have drive-away prices of $29,990 and $35,990 respectively.   

A diesel-engined 110TDI Highline is also offered at $38,490 drive away, while those seeking all-wheel-drive can opt for a Golf Alltrack from $35,990 drive away.
