Not really 0% if they add £2k to price.
Diesel gate people! Never forget!
I haven't looked at prices in a while but the golf R was available slightly cheaper than that last month. If my memory is correct.
Maybe it's gone up since then though. That was through drive the deal

Normal Golf GTI (Not the "R") discounted and still just shy of £30k? Can't believe how much a hot hatch costs these days.

Diesel gate people! Never forget!


Everyone was doing it - VW got caught first and everyone reverted the tech that run the car in an alternative way when a test scenario was detected (Ford, Fiat Group, GM etc.). The Yanks would never go after one of their own.

This isn't a diesel.

The inflation on new cars is criminal in this time of low inflation. The last production run of the MK5 Golf GTI in early 2009 had an RRP of £21k. Less than 11 years later the equivalent car is 60% costlier. My wages have gone up about 20% in the same time period (half of that is down to promotion).

There's more tech now (but tech is cheap these days), and it's a bit more powerful. The golf GTI is fast becoming a car not for the people. Add some options and you could easily bust the £40k barrier to be hammered on VED.

Still the benchmark hot hatch - there are faster ones out there but it's pretty much the best jack of all trades, performance and sharp handling when you need it and comfort you can live with all day every day when you don't.

Buy a cupra 290, save your self 7k.
^ It might be a £7k saving for purchase price, but consider higher depreciation on the Cupra and PCP or outright ownership over 3 years (accounting for the price you'll get in selling it on) is probably near identical.
^ Outright ownership over 3 years you say ? My advice would be to lease then Total Rentals are often far cheaper than the actual depreciation cost and your pants wont have to come down when you trade in or attempt to sell (which could also be a complete nightmare with a car like this!) .

Just done a quick calc on LeasingOptions and the Golf 300 R 4 motion DSG works out at £14611.68 over 3 years (total cost) or £18317 over 4 years (based on 8k /yr miles) , I know which deal I'd rather go with

Excellent car for a decent price. Should have better resale values than some other hot hatches too. As has been said, it really is a brilliant all rounder.
Edited the post, the price is £27412 on 4.9% and £29412 on 0%
My Golf R did well on depreciation. Bought it cash for £28k with 5 yr warranty, Lapiz paint and Pretoria Wheels. Sold it 46 months later for £17.3k. £233 a month depreciation. Of course I was missing out on a bit of interest in the bank.
I was very underwhelmed when I test drove this recently. Was toying with the idea of buying brand new on a PCP type plan, but for the same money I ended up in an ex demo BMW X3 m40d. Perfect for me, very pleased.

My memory may not be serving me correctly, but I'm sure I read that the MK7 Golf was the first Golf to be based on the new MQB platform which would result in lower production costs and, hence, a lower ticket price.

However, I think it was also stated that this cost effectiveness, and hence lower prices, would take some time to filter through to consumers.

We are now, what, 7 years into the life of the MK7 with the MK8 just around the corner and no sign of consumers benefiting price wise from the move to the MQB platform.

More VW bull which ends up hitting brand/model loyalists like myself.

Fully agree, VW save costs and put their prices up. Does the extra kit.counteract the savings made?

The.MK7 Golf is very generously equipped, but even during the lifecycle of the MK7, VW has been chipping away at little things they hope you won't notice - under front seat drawers are gone, the lock on the glovebox, certain moulded covers for equipment under the bonnet.

The incoming MK8 looks to have a few other cost savings in the interior.

Everyone's at it though with crazy RRPs that rarely resemble actual buying prices, budget marques get established in the market and then hike prices up - Kia is no longer trading as a budget marque, Dacia prices have shot up (although still cheaper than most).

It's only high residuals that make new VWs and Audi still seem reasonable value for money, not the sticker price itself.

I am currently running a 66 plate GTi - lease runs out early next year - I've done low mileage in that time (c12k) - have the option of buying the vehicle for £18k which I have declined - as such, it will go to auction and likely sell for less but will probably end up being bought by a VW dealer so will stay in the VW network and re-sold at an inflated price to a member of the public thus bolstering residual prices for the model and, as you say, also giving the impression buying a factory built car is better value - win/win for VW though.
