Match trim returns to the Volkswagen range

Milton Keynes – Volkswagen, the UK’s best-selling new-car brand for the past three years, is bringing back the Match trim line to multiple models across its range as the brand continues to offer affordable vehicles with generous levels of equipment.

Match trims have long appeared in the Volkswagen range, the badge being synonymous with improved specification and great value for money. They are returning now across 10 Volkswagen models including, for the first time, electric vehicles (EVs).

The Polo, T-Cross, Taigo, T-Roc, Tiguan and Touran are all now available in Match trim, adding significant levels of equipment compared with Life (SE Family for Touran)

The news is even better for anyone looking for an electric car: Match trims for the ID.3, ID.4 and ID.5 come with added equipment, but benefit from reduced on-the-road prices. The Match trim now also encompasses the all-new ID.7 offering, to coincide with the arrival of this flagship Volkswagen EV in UK showrooms.

“We have a rich heritage with Match trims, which have always represented great value for money for our customers,” said Rod McLeod, Director of Volkswagen UK. “Launching them now across 10 models in a variety of segments – including electric – gives people lots of choice and will hopefully help us to build on our success as the UK’s best-selling new-car brand.”
