THE Golf GTE stands as a trim level in its own right, with the stan­dard and Ad­vance mod­els of­fer­ing dif­fer­ent lev­els of kit within this.

Start­ing with the reg­u­lar GTE, a £3,000 de­posit on a three-year PCP deal lim­ited to 10,000 miles will cost you £333 per month, helped by a £1,500 man­u­fac­turer’s de­posit con­tri­bu­tion across the range.

Given you get lots of stan­dard kit, in­clud­ing VW’S up­dated in­fo­tain­ment for 2017 and the dig­i­tal dial pack, it’s fairly good value.

How­ever, if you want satel­lite nav­i­ga­tion you’ll have to up­grade to the GTE Ad­vance model, which costs £447 per month.

This is a fairly steep step up, and given the GTE gets Ap­ple Carplay and An­droid Auto ca­pa­bil­ity as stan­dard, which adds sat-nav through your smart­phone, we’d rec­om­mend stick­ing with the stan­dard GTE be­cause it will save you £4,104 dur­ing a 36-month PCP finance con­tract. Our choice: Golf GTE
