Volkswagen has recently announced the arrival of the Golf 7 in Australia, where the popular hatchback is now available to its future customers from 21,490 AUD.

According to the German based automaker, the cheapest version of the new Golf generation is now powered by a more powerful 1.4 liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which is replacing the old 1.2 liter turbo with 77 kW. The unit is producing 90 kW and it’s one of the three new engines powering the model, along with the 103 kW petrol turbo and the 110 kW turbo diesel. The 21,490 AUD price of the entry-level is before on-road costs and it represents 500 AUD less than the previous entry-level model.

The new VW Golf 7 90 TSI entry-level version is burning an average of 5.7 L / 100 km with a six-speed manual transmission and 5.4 liters of fuel / 100 km with the six-speed DSG dual clutch automatic. This variant is pushing the price up to 23,990 AUD. The more expensive Golf 7 103 TSI will set you back for 31,990 AUD and it’s only available with a DSG transmission. Fuel consumption in this model stands at 5.2 L / 100 km.

The 2013 VW Golf 7 is available in three trim levels and it can also be bought with the Comfortline, for an extra 3,500 AUD, which is adding the dual-zone climate control, parking sensors, rain sensing wipers, rearview camera and 16-inch alloy wheels. Standard features include the seven airbags, electric handbrake, cruise control, Bluetooth, 5-8-inch color touch screen, trip computer and more. The most expensive Golf 7 is the 110 TDI DSG, which can be yours from 34,490 AUD.
