Volkswagen is boosting the appeal and value of the Golf line-up today, for customers ordering a GT, GTI, GTD or R model by gaining leather upholstery as standard. On top of this, Volkswagen is adding Bluetooth phone preparation to these cars, meaning customers benefit from over £2,000-worth of extra value.

Luxurious black ‘Vienna’ leather upholstery was previously a £1,890 option, and offers more than just a fine hide seat covering. The driver’s seat comes with electrical adjustment, while both passenger and driver get electrically operated lumbar support and heated seats, which should receive a warm welcome in the coming winter months.

The GT, GTI and GTD all feature sports seats with bolsters to hold occupants securely in place, while the sports seats in the Golf R have even deeper bolsters, as befits the R’s extra performance. Recaro sports seats remain an option for Golf R customers.

Bluetooth phone preparation (previously a £255 option) seamlessly integrates compatible mobile telephones with the Golf’s in-car entertainment system, allowing users to access many of their phone’s features using buttons on the radio or via the standard leather-trimmed multifunction steering wheel.

This upgrade is offered for just £140 on GT models, and for no extra cost on GTD, GTI and R, meaning GT prices now start at £21,310, GTD at £24,635, GTI at £25,305 and R at £31,420.
