2020 Volkswagen Golf gets drive-away pricing across the board

2019 Volkswagen Golf

2020 Volkswagen Golf range kicks off from $24,990 driveaway as Mk7.5 winds down

The 2020 Volkswagen Golf Mark 7.5 range has dropped in price across the board, with Volkswagen announcing that the entire range has moved to national driveaway pricing.

Representing a substantial saving over the previous year’s line-up, the Volkswagen Golf range starts at $24,990 driveaway for the entry-level manual 110 TSI Trendline, extending all the way to the hot Golf R wagon at $57,990 drive-away.

The rejigged pricing for the range marks Volkswagen’s final push for the current generation Mark 7.5 model, before the new Mk8 debuts towards the end of next year.

Diesels aren't making a return after being dropped last year.

That shouldn’t factor into sales too heavily, though, with Volkswagen saying 70 per cent of Golf sales are for cars over $30,000, with a quarter of buyers opting for the sporty Golf GTI and Golf R models.

The Golf Highline in hatchback and wagon forms are the most affordable they’ve ever been, priced at $34,990 and $36,990 driveaway, respectively.

The 2020 range is covered by Volkswagen’s five-year/unlimited kilometre warranty. The company's fixed price service scheme has also been overhauled, now costing $1100 for three or $1350 for five years for the non-GTI and R variants.

The Golf Mk8 is expected to arrive in Australia in the fourth quarter of 2020, with the sports-oriented Golf GTI and R to follow either later in the same year or in the early part of 2021.
