Colour is one of the most important decisions you have to make for your new car – the right one will always look clean and sell easily, the wrong one could mean endless weekends spent cleaning it. We’ve brought together every colour for the VW Golf to help you make your choice.
Urano Gray – £0
This no-cost gloss grey is pleasingly understated but – to some eyes – is a little dull. It’s a dark shade so shouldn’t be too hard to keep clean and should be an easy colour to sell to the used market. This colour isn’t available on performance models of the Golf.
Black Rubin – £280
This black shade features a hint of maroon and will be a popular choice with used cars buyers meaning you won’t struggle to sell it on. Keeping this colour clean could be tricky because black is a pain to keep clean and, if not washed properly, swirl marks can show up. This colour isn’t available on R-Line models or the Golf R.
Tornado Red – £280
This racy red colour is mostly chosen for GTI models but is available across the range. It’s one of the more vibrant shades on offer and will help you stand out from the crowd. That said, red can be a little harder to sell on and keep clean than some more subtle shades.
Pure White – £280
Pure White is a vibrant colour that suits sporty models such as the GT trim. It’ll be easy to sell to the used market but it will pick up many layers of grime without frequent cleaning.
Atlantic Blue – £570
This rich, dark blue looks great against the Golf’s silver trim pieces. Its darkness means it should be fairly easy to keep clean and its subtlty should make it easy to sell to the used market. This colour isn’t available on R-Line models or the Golf R.
Indium Grey – £570
The metallic finish gives this grey a little more depth compared to Urano Gray, especially under bright lights. It’ll be moderately easy to keep clean and will be easy to sell to second-hand buyers down the road.
Isaac Blue – £570
While this blue-grey shade may not be eye-catching, it is inoffesnsive meaning used buyers are likely to be tempted by this shade. It’ll do a good job of hiding road grime thanks to its darkness. This colour isn’t available on basic S or SE models, or R-Line and Golf R versions.
Peacock Green – £570
Why not spread your feathers and opt for this dark green colour. It’s not a common hue, meaning it could be a little harder to sell on than more conventional shades but it should do a good job of hiding dirt. This colour isn’t available on R-Line models or on the Golf R.
Tungsten Silver – £570
Silver is always a safe colour choice for a new car and this metallic shade will ensure an easy resale to the used car market. Its natural lightness means it’ll be hard to keep clean so budget for plenty of car washes. This colour isn’t available on R-Line models or on the Golf R.
Turmeric Yellow – £570
Turmeric Yellow will help your Golf standout. Being a pretty extroverted colour, it might be harder to sell on than more conventional shades. Being at the lighter end of the spectrum, it might require some effort to keep clean.
White Silver – £570
A light silver isn’t the most characteristic of colours nor will it be the easiest to keep clean. It should, however, be easy to sell to the used car market. This colour isn’t available on R-Line models or on the Golf R.
Deep Black – £570
Black is always a popular colour choice with new and used buyers meaning it’ll be very easy to sell on. The Golf looks smart in this rich black colour but you’ll may have trouble keeping it clean if it isn’t scrubbed regularly.
Oryx White Special – £990
This pearlescent white really ‘pops’ thanks to the reflective flecks in the paintwork. Keeping it clean will prove difficult but the colour should prove to be a hit in the second-hand market. This shade is not available on ‘S’ models.
Lapiz Blue – £630
This colour unique to the Golf R is a dark metallic blue and, with the Golf R’s contrasting silver mirror caps, really helps the car standout. This colour should be easy to sell on and won’t be too hard to keep clean.
