Pricing announced for refreshed 2018 Volkswagen Golf 7.5 range

The refreshed Volkswagen Golf 7.5 sees the return of the Golf R wagon to the range, with prices for the entry-level Golf from $23,990+ORC.

PRICING FOR THE REFRESHED 2018 Volkswagen Golf 7.5 range has been revealed with prices starting from just $23,990+ORC for the entry-level Golf 110TSI.

Initially there will be eight grades of Golf 7.5 hatchback (including the Golf GTI Performance Edition 1) and six grades of wagon (including the now three-strong Golf Alltrack range), when the range is officially launched here in July.

According to Volkswagen, there are 300 examples each of the Golf R Wolfsburg Edition hatch and Wagon available from late August. Pricing is being finalised. The Golf R Wagon returns permanently to the line-up in January.

In a statement, Volkswagen Group Australia Managing Director Michael Bartsch said: “The Golf is the compact car that all other manufacturers – affordable and prestige alike – seek to emulate”. And he’s right, but the refreshed Golf will have to overcome best-sellers in the small car segment, including Toyota Corolla, Mazda3 and the launched-this-week Hyundai i30.

“The Golf Mark 7 won World Car of the Year and multiple national titles. The 7.5 range is enhanced in every respect. No doubt other importers will attempt to realign their offerings to compete, as ever they do.

“None of them can match the inherent value of owning a Volkswagen Golf – the world’s most sophisticated affordable car. The Golf brings to its price point technologies and innovations that were until recently the preserve of high-end luxury cars.”
