Volkswagen Australia has announced details of the 2020 Golf line-up, which now sees the entire range advertised with drive-away pricing.

Prices start at $24,990 drive-away for the entry-level 110TSI Trendline manual, and climb to $57,990 drive-away for the flagship Golf R wagon.

In between there’s Comfortline, Highline, Alltrack and GTI models, too, though the diesel Highline and Alltrack Premium models have been dropped.

Standard equipment from the base level includes autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection, seven airbags, driver fatigue monitoring, 16-inch alloys, an 8.0-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a leather multifunction steering wheel, cruise control, LED daytime-running lights and tail-lights, front and rear parking sensors, automatic headlights and wipers, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, front seat lumbar adjustment, a fold-down rear centre armrest, and a rear-view camera.

Moving up to the 110TSI Comfortline (from $29,990 drive-away) brings the seven-speed DSG automatic as standard, along with dual-zone climate control, satellite navigation, keyless entry with push-button start, power folding side mirrors, 17-inch alloys, ‘Comfort’ front seats, chrome accents inside and out, carpet mats, and an additional 12V outlet in the luggage compartment.

The “compact luxury” 110TSI Highline models (from $34,990 drive-away) pick up adaptive cruise control with Traffic Jam Assist, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, Lane Assist with adaptive lane guidance, a semi-autonomous park assist, ‘Vienna’ leather upholstery, electric adjustment for the driver’s seat with memory function, memory function for the exterior mirrors, automatic high-beam, a panoramic electric glass sunroof, LED ambient cabin lighting, front fog-lights, ‘Comfort Sport’ front seats with heating, different 17-inch alloys, LED headlights for low- and high-beam, along with a colour multifunction driver’s display in place of the monochrome one in lower models.

The 110TSI range gets a 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine making (you guessed it) 110kW of power and 250Nm of torque, driving the front wheels via a six-speed manual (Trendline only) or a seven-speed DSG.

Beyond the standard hatchback and wagon range, there’s also the crossover-styled Golf Alltrack wagons, which also get drive-away pricing for MY20.

The standard Alltrack 132TSI (from $37,990 drive-away) comes equipped with a more powerful 132kW/280Nm 1.8-litre turbo petrol motor with six-speed DSG, 4Motion all-wheel drive, and essentially the same level of specification as the Comfortline hatch and wagon.

Stepping up to the Alltrack Premium ($41,990 drive-away) brings the driver-assistance suite and premium features that are mostly in line with the Highline. That means adaptive cruise control with Traffic Jam Assist, Lane Assist with adaptive lane guidance, Park Assist, Light Assist, LED headlights, Vienna leather trim, and heated front seats with electric driver’s seat adjustment all feature, though the Alltrack continues to miss out on blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.

Kicking off the performance range is the Golf GTI (from $47,990 drive-away), which gets a 180kW/370Nm 2.0-litre turbo driving the front wheels via a seven-speed DSG and front diff lock. Other features include ventilated disc brakes front and rear, the full suite of active safety systems, 18-inch wheels, the 12.3-inch Active Info display, adaptive chassis control, GTI body styling, ‘Clark’ tartan cloth upholstery, and a leather sports multifunction steering wheel with paddles.

Finally, the Golf R flagship (from $54,990 drive-away) gets a beefy 213kW/380Nm 2.0-litre turbo with 4Motion all-wheel drive, Vienna leather trim, heated front seats, upgraded LED headlights with dynamic cornering lights and Dynamic Light Assist, 19-inch alloys, R body styling, privacy glass, premium paint, Discover Pro 9.2-inch infotainment system with Gesture Control, and premium LED tail-lights with scrolling indicators.

The Golf range is covered by Volkswagen Australia’s five year, unlimited kilometre warranty, with the option of the new Volkswagen Care Plan that offers three of five years servicing with free roadside assistance for that period.

For reference, a three-year plan costs $1100 for core models, or $1350 for the GTI and R. Five-year plans, meanwhile, equate to $1900 for wider ranged and $2350 for performance models.

As before, there’s a range of options and option packages depending on variant. See bottom of article for full details.
