Leasing a Volkswagen Golf
The original Volkswagen Golf came out in 1974. It was a replacement for the famous VW Beetle and soon cemented its own iconic status, going on to become one of the few vehicles to win the European Car of the Year award twice. Later variants included the roomier Golf Estate and Golf SV, while the rugged 4motion all-wheel-drive Alltrack became a popular choice for city slickers who enjoy weekend hiking adventures. The first electric Golf appeared in 2014, with later spin-offs including the Golf GTE plug-in hybrid.
The VW Golf hatchback has a 1.0-litre TSI petrol engine with 148hp, and a six-speed manual gearbox. For extra performance, the TDI 150 R Line comes with a powerful 2.0-litre engine and 4Motion - VW’s all-wheel-drive system. The e-Golf uses an electric motor producing 136hp. It has a one-speed automatic gearbox and an official WLTP range of 144 miles. The Golf eTSI 150 Life mild-hybrid model features a 48V lithium-ion battery for increased fuel economy. The Golf Alltrack has two engine options: the 1.8-litre petrol TSi, or the 2.0-litre diesel engine with either 150hp or 184hp and the DSG automatic gearbox.
VW Golf safety features include smart cruise control, emergency braking and blind-spot monitoring. These intelligent systems work in tandem to be an extra pair of eyes on the road, taking pre-emptive action when necessary. This reduces the chances of collision and bumps to an absolute minimum. VW's Car-Net links smartphone apps to the infotainment touchscreen, while sat-nav provides regular traffic updates and other handy tips, including weather warnings and nearby petrol stations.
Volkswagen recommends servicing your Golf yearly or every 12,000 miles. This will minimise the risk of breakdown and keeps your vehicle running at full efficiency. Every new car comes with Volkswagen's manufacturer warranty. It's a three-year or 60,000-miles warranty on repairs in the UK and abroad.

Frequently Asked Questions
Leasing can be a cost-effective alternative to buying a new car, such as a Golf R-Line. Lease customers never own the vehicle. Instead, they cover depreciation costs with an initial deposit and monthly payments. This means leasing can be cheaper than other types of car finance and you've got easy access to a brand new car that you might otherwise be unable to afford.
Your estimated mileage will affect the cost of your lease hire. Engine specs, trim and excess mileage charges will also impact the overall cost. Road tax is included.
