Volkswagen has added extra style, performance and exclusivity to its range with the new Golf Black Edition, which is now on sale in the UK.
The Golf Black Edition sits between the R-Line and GTE models and comes packed with exciting and exclusive features. In addition, it has all the style customers have come to expect from any Volkswagen Black Edition.
Additional items compared with the R-Line include 18-inch black Bergamo alloy wheels – which are not available with any other Golf in the UK – plus a Winter Pack, rear-view camera and a Black Style Package.
This comprises an illuminated strip between the headlights, recessed and illuminated door handles, black exterior mirror housings and LED Plus headlights. Sports seats in the front, rear tinted glass, R-Line body-coloured bumpers and interior ambient lighting with 30 colour options complete the Golf Black Edition’s head-turning looks.
The Golf Black Edition comes with a choice of three advanced powertrains, all providing sparkling performance, impressive refinement and high efficiency:
- 1.5 TSI 150 PS with six-speed manual
- 1.5 eTSI 150 PS mild hybrid with seven-speed automatic direct-shift gearbox (DSG)
- 2.0 TSI 190 PS with seven-speed DSG and 4MOTION all-wheel drive (exclusive to Golf Black Edition)
As expected from any Volkswagen Black Edition model, this new Golf model promises to offer notable value for money for buyers in the UK as its additional features, compared with the R-Line, would normally cost £2,900 (RM16,962) – but the new model costs just £1,500 (RM8,773) more.
That being said, the recommended retail price of the Volkswagen Golf Black Edition in the UK starts from £31,985 (RM187,084) on the road, including insurance.
As cool as it is, the Golf Black Edition will not be making its way here as it is a market-specific model that was destined only for the UK by Volkswagen UK.
