VW introduces entry-level Golf Twist

Volkswagen has introduced a new entry-level Golf model which offers added value and extra equipment as standard. The Golf Twist is available to order now with prices starting at £12,995 on the road.

Available in three or five-door bodystyles, the Golf Twist is fitted with a 1.4-litre petrol engine with 80bhp and a six-speed manual transmission. Acceleration from 0 to 62 mph takes 13.9 seconds and the new model has a top speed of 107mph. The Golf Twist has a claimed average economy figure of 44.1mpg and CO2 emissions of 149g/km.

The new entry-level model represents good value for money with more than £700 of additional equipment over the Golf S on which it is based. The Twist adds 16-inch ‘Atlanta' alloy wheels, an RCD 310 radio system with MDI multimedia connectivity and a front centre armrest. As with all models in the Golf range, the Twist is fitted with a host of safety features including ESP Electronic Stabilisation Programme and seven airbags.

The Golf Twist costs £12,995 on the road with a £585 premium for the five-door model. The previous entry-level Golf S with the same 1.4-litre engine, costs £14,880. Along with all models in the Volkswagen range, the Golf Twist is available with a fixed-price servicing package for retail customers. A one-off payment of just £250 covers servicing for three years or 30,000 miles (whichever comes first).

Alternatively, the Golf Twist is offered through Volkswagen Solutions and is eligible for the existing finance offer available on all Golf models, with 7.9 per cent APR typical. This includes free servicing for three years or 30,000 miles helping to reduce the cost of ownership.
