Volkswagen has launched a promising new car dubbed as Golf Match. The fresh version of VW Golf is powered by a choice of state-of-the-art petrol or diesel engines. The 1.6-litre FSI petrol engine is capable of developing 115 PS, which can be mated to a choice of 6-speed manual or automatic gearboxes. On the other hand, the 1.9-litre TDI diesel unit that produces 105 PS is matched to a 5-speed manual or an optional 6-speed, DSG gearbox.
All-new Volkswagen Golf Match is given brand new VW wheels. The 15-inch ‘Canberra’ ten-spoke alloy wheels are joined by body bumpers, door handles and side rubbing strips. VW wheels are renowned for its durability, performance and style that suit various types of makes and models. VW attests that said wheels can even be customized to achieve different look of the car. Further, enthusiasts are saying that these wheels are comfortable and safe even during bumpy rides.

Volkswagen Golf, the world’s third best-selling compact car, is as historically significant as the Beetle. In fact, it has pioneered the first successful front-wheel drive hatchback. This time around, the German automaker trims said model to come up with Volkswagen Golf Match. The latter is made more promising than its ancestors. Aside from the traditional Golf features like ABS, ESP (Electronic Stabilization Programme), remote central locking with alarm and twin front, side and curtain airbags, it was packed with useful and aesthetic additions.
