Volkswagen Ireland has also announced that it is retaining the pre-Budget pricing that was announced earlier in the year, so there will be no price increase on Golf heading into 2013.

Not only is the new car lighter, safer, more advanced, more spacious, more efficient and better equipped than previous generations of Europe’s bestseller - of which over 29 million have been sold - but with a starting price of just €19,995 for the three-door, 1.2-litre 85bhp Trendline model, it is still below €20,000.

The diesel line-up starts at just €22,695 for the 105bhp, 1.6-litre TDI model. This new, 1.6-litre TDI, 105bhp engine will have CO2 emissions of just 99g/km.

From launch, the Golf will be available in Ireland in three trim levels: Trendline, Comfortline and Highline (the GTD, GTI and BlueMotion models will join the line-up in 2013).

Three petrol engines and two diesel engines will be available to order.

The petrol engine range starts with a four-cylinder, 1.2-litre TSI unit producing 85bhp, rising via a 1.2-litre TSI with 105bhp up to the all-new, 1.4-litre TSI 140 bhp engine with Active Cylinder Technology.

This helps to create an extremely efficient engine capable of 4.7l/100km (combined cycle) and 109g/km thanks to the ability to deactivate the central two cylinders under light loads.

This makes it 23% more efficient than the equivalent engine in the previous version of the Golf.
