Volkswagen has further widened the appeal of its most successful model with the introduction of this new variant. From the 1.2 TSI to the Golf R, there's now a Golf model to suit most needs and budgets.

At just over a hundred grand at today's sky high COE prices, the 1.2 TSI isn't exactly affordable for most car buyers though, especially when considering that the 1.4 TSI set one back just over $80k when it was first launched early last year. But then again, compared to other cars its size and with the same specifications, the Golf 1.2 TSI will save its buyer over the long run in road tax and fuel costs.
