Volkswagen has announced pricing and specs for revised 2019 Golf range, now featuring fewer variants and a $24,990 starting price.
The new range kicks off with the 110TSI Trendline, priced from $24,990 before on-road costs in manual guise. Speccing the seven-speed DSG adds $2500, while the DSG-only wagon is priced from $28,990 plus ORCs.
Power comes from a 1.4-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol making 110kW and 250Nm, put exclusively to the front wheels. It rides on 16-inch alloy wheels, and gets an 8.0-inch infotainment with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard.
Parking sensors at both ends, cruise control, automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers, auto-dimming interior mirrors, and a rear-view camera are standard, along with autonomous emergency braking. Metallic paint is a $500 option across the entire range.
Jumping to the 110TSI Comfortline gives you the same engine, but makes the DSG standard, and brings a starting price of $29,750 for the hatch and $31,250 for the wagon (plus on-roads).
Standard equipment atop the Trendline includes dual-zone climate control, satellite navigation, keyless entry and start, power-folding mirrors, 17-inch alloy wheels, chrome exterior highlights, interior floor mats and a 12V outlet in the luggage compartment.
Also available on the Trendline and Comfortline is a $1500 Driver Assistance Package which brings adaptive cruise control with traffic-jam assist, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, along with multiple driver profiles.
Topping the regular range is the 110TSI Highline, priced from $35,990 before on-road costs as a hatch or $37,490 in wagon guise. The trimmings from the Driver Assistance Package are standard, along with leather-appointed seats, electric driver's seat adjustment, LED headlights, auto high-beam, a panoramic sunroof, fog-lights, 17-inch alloy wheels, and a colour display in the instrument binnacle.
The $2300 Sound and Vision Package, available on Comfortline and Highline, adds the fully-digital Active Info display in place of conventional instruments, a 9.2-inch infotainment system with gesture control and a 400W Dynaudio stereo.
Only the Highline is offered with the $2500 R-Line Package bringing a sportier exterior styling package, 18-inch alloy wheels, sports suspension and a unique steering tune. Privacy glass is also included.
On the high-riding Alltrack (above) side of the things, the range kicks off with the 132TSI, priced from $35,250 before on-road costs. Power comes from a 132kW/280Nm 1.8-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol, hooked up to a six-speed DSG and 4Motion all-wheel drive.
Autonomous emergency braking is standard, along with auto headlights, rain-sensing wipers, a rear-view camera and parking sensors at both ends, while keyless entry, electric-folding mirrors and push-button start are also standard. Rounding out the spec sheet are dual-zone climate control, an 8.0-inch infotainment system, a leather steering wheel and floor mats.
It costs $1200 to add the aforementioned Driver Assistance Package (as there is no blind-spot monitoring or rear cross-traffic alert available), while the Sound and Vision package costs the same $2300you'll pay in the hatchback.
Sitting above the 132TSI is the Premium, which gets the Driver Assistance Package as standard, along with leather seats, front-seat heating, an electrically-adjustable driver's seat and LED headlights.
Speccing the $2500 Sport Luxury Package adds 18-inch alloy wheels, gearshift paddles, a panoramic sunroof and window tinting.
