Volkswagen’s Match Trim Makes a Comeback, Now Electrifying the Lineup!

Milton Keynes, February 6, 2024 – In a move that’s bound to electrify car enthusiasts with laughter, Volkswagen has announced the triumphant return of the “Match” trim to its lineup. Known for delivering improved specifications and value for money, Match trim is back in action, adorning not only internal combustion engine (ICE) models but also making its electric debut on Volkswagen’s EVs.

The iconic Match trim badge will grace ten Volkswagen models, proving that Volkswagen knows how to match humor with affordability. The Match trim now extends its quirky embrace to electric vehicles, showing that Volkswagen has a knack for electrifying humor as well.

For those sticking to good old-fashioned gasoline power, the Match trim sits above the Life trim for ICE models (SE Family on the Touran). While it may cost anywhere from £175 to £705 more than its lower counterpart (based on January 2024 prices), it offers an array of comical upgrades, including larger alloy wheels, metallic paint, tinted windows, a rear-view camera, and keyless entry. Who knew a Match could light up your car this way?

But the real laugh riot is happening in the electric vehicle (EV) segment. The Match trim for the ID.3, ID.4, ID.5, and the all-new ID.7 promises extra equipment that will have you chuckling all the way to the showroom. With metallic paint, an electric tailgate, exterior pack, and an assistance pack, these EVs are fully loaded with humor. And here’s the punchline: on-the-road prices have been reduced by up to around £4,300. That’s a discount even your funniest uncle would envy!

But wait, there’s more laughter to be had. Volkswagen introduces a brand new ID.3 Pro Essential trim, now available for just £35,700 on the road. The new ID.3 Match trims replace the previous Pro and Pro S versions, and there’s even an additional Pro S Essential trim available for £39,190 on the road. It’s like Volkswagen is throwing a comedy show, and the lineup is stacked!

For the ID.4, the Pro Match and Pro 4M Match step in to replace the previous Life and Style trims. And if you want a pure dose of laughter, the new entry-level Pure Match trim is ready to tickle your funny bone at a mere £42,640 on the road. Who says driving an EV can’t be a side-splitting experience?

Last but not least, the ID.7 Pro Match takes the spotlight, replacing the previously announced Launch Edition. It doesn’t just offer laughs; it adds metallic paint and an exterior pack to the mix, all for the price of £51,550 on the road. With Volkswagen’s Match trim, it’s clear that affordability and humor go hand in hand.

Rod McLeod, Director of Volkswagen UK, couldn’t contain his excitement, saying, “We have a rich heritage with Match trims, which have always represented great value for money for our customers. 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.”

So, whether you’re in it for the laughs or looking for a great deal, Volkswagen’s Match trim is here to make you smile while you drive. It’s the perfect match for your automotive comedy routine!
