Golf Style

RRP £25,495

carwow prices from

£23,524

Over the kit you get in Life models, Style adds 17-inch alloy wheels, chrome trims on the exterior, door puddle lights and LED headlights that move as you turn corners. The front seats have lumbar adjustment and you also get three-zone climate control. It doesn't look quite as good as R Line, which is our favourite.
