Volkswagen Golf 2020 pricing and spec confirmed

This will be the Mark 7.5s last full year on sale.

Volkswagen has revealed pricing for its 2020 Golf range, with the Mark 7.5 vehicles set to be replaced by new Mark 8 models late next year.

Chief among the changes is a price drop across the range (and the brand has moved to a drive-away structure). The Highline grade also gets added standard safety gear, and the Golf R now has the option of premium paint at no extra cost.

Kicking off the range at $24,990 drive-away is the 110TSI Trendline with a six-speed manual. Included are 16-inch alloy wheels, a 8.0-inch multimedia touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a leather steering wheel, LED DRLs, front and rear parking sensors and a dimming rear vision mirror. On the safety front, the Trendlines get city-speed auto emergency braking (AEB) which works in reverse, Driver Attention Alert, a rear-view camera, and seven airbags.

The seven-speed dual-clutch automatic costs $2000 more, at $26,990 drive-away, while the auto-only wagon is $5000 more, at $29,990 drive-away.

Next up is the auto-only 110TSI Comfortline at $29,990.

The entire Golf range gets drive-away pricing. The entire Golf range gets drive-away pricing.

Added to the standard spec sheet are 17-inch alloy wheels, built-in navigation, dual-zone climate control, keyless entry with push-button start, power-folding door mirrors, an extra 12v outlet, and  better ‘comfort’ seats.

The Comfortline wagon costs $3000 more at $32,990 drive-away.

Topping out the regular Golf range is the 110TSI Highline at $34,990 drive-away.

Standard safety makes a jump, with the Highline adding adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring (BSM), lane departure warning (LDW), with lane keep assist (LKAS), park-assist auto-parking, traffic jam assist, and rear cross-traffic alert.

The Highline also gains extra trim items over the Comfortline, including Vienna leather seat trim, an electrically adjustable driver’s seat, heated front seats, auto high-beams, panoramic sunroof, LED headlights, LED interior lighting, and a colour multifunction display in the dash.

All 110TSI variants remain motivated by a 1.4-litre, 110kW/250Nm turbocharged engine.

The Trendline and Comfortline are available with the ‘Driver Assistance Package’ ($1500), which adds the Highline’s extra safety features to the lesser variants.

The Comfortline and Highline are available with the ‘Sound and Vision Package’ ($2300), which adds VW’s ‘Active Info Display’ digital dashboard, a larger 9.2-inch multimedia touchscreen and sat-nav system with gesture and voice control, as well as a 400W premium audio system.

The R-Line Package ($2500) is available only on the Highline and tweaks the interior and exterior styling and changes the 18-inch alloy wheel design. It also adds ‘progressive steering’, sports suspension and tinted rear windows.

The Golf Alltrack raised wagon is still available, boasting a larger 1.8-litre, 132TSI engine and all-wheel drive at a cost of $37,990 drive-away.

The Alltrack wagon is auto only. The Alltrack wagon is auto only.

The Alltrack comes with VW’s 4MOTION all-wheel-drive system and a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, and boasts a standard spec list on par with the Comfortline wagon.

The Alltrack Premium is available for $4000 more and matches the spec level of the Highline.

The Alltrack variants can also be optioned with the Sound and Vision package ($2300), while the base Alltrack can have the Premium’s safety features as part of the Driver Assistance Package ($1200), and the Premium can be fitted with a Sport Luxury Package ($2500) adding a bespoke wheel design, paddle-shifters, a panoramic glass sunroof and tinted rear windows.

On the sportier side, the now automatic-only Golf GTI comes in at $47,990 drive-away.

Included is a more potent 180kW/370Nm 2.0-litre turbo engine mated exclusively to a seven-speed dual-clutch auto, a front differential lock, ventilated brakes front and rear, 18-inch alloy wheels, ‘adaptive chassis control’, GTI body styling and GTI-specific ‘Clark’ cloth seat trim.

The GTI’s standard equipment and safety features otherwise match that of the Highline, sans the electrically adjustable leather seats and sunroof.

The GTI can be augmented with either the Sound and Style package ($2300) featuring 19-inch alloy wheels, the larger 9.2-inch multimedia screen and 400W premium audio system, and, the ‘Luxury Package’ ($3,900) featuring leather seats, electrically adjustable driver’s seat, heated front seats, panoramic sunroof, and electrically folding mirrors with memory function.

Finally, at the pinnacle of the Golf range, is the Golf R at a new price of $54,990 drive-away.

The Golf R has an even more aggressive 213kW/380Nm 2.0-litre turbocharged engine, 4MOTION all-wheel drive, 19-inch alloy wheels, bespoke R styling inside and out and dynamic cornering lights.

The Golf R has all the inclusions of the luxury and multimedia packages, and premium paints come at no extra cost.

The R can be had as a wagon at $57,990 which also adds a luggage partition and chrome roof rails as standard.

This leaves only the 400W sound system ($1000) and panoramic glass sunroof ($1900) on the R’s options list.

All Volkswagens are now offered with a five-year unlimited kilometre warranty, and capped price servicing is packaged into ‘Care Plans’ which can be added at the time of purchase.

Care Plans pre-pay the cost of servicing and are set at $1100 for three years or $1900 for five years on the regular Golf range, including the Alltrack. The cost of the packages for the GTI and R are set at $1350 for three years or $2350 for five years.
