Volkswagen has cut prices of the facelifted new Mk7.5 Golf by an average of £650 across the range. But it isn’t stopping there. To lure private PCP buyers, it’s also offering a £1000 finance deposit contribution to everyone buying on the 4.9 percent APR Solutions scheme. Even GTI and GTE hot hatch versions are included.

This is an impressive deal for a brand new model, although it isn’t as good as the deal available on the Polo. You can get an £1800 deposit contribution on that, provided you’re happy to sign up for a 6.2 percent APR Solutions PCP. Just be aware, the hefty cash wodge is being offered because the Polo is being replaced later this year.

The still-new Tiguan isn’t going to be replaced any time soon. Volkswagen is having enough trouble meeting demand for it: 20,000 have been sold in the UK over the past year. To ensure this demand doesn’t tail off, the firm’s offering a £1500 deposit contribution on a 5.1 percent PCP offer, on S, SE and SE Navigation variants. Presumably those with cash to splash on SEL and R-Line trims don’t need financial help, so the contribution is cut to £1000.

All orders need to be placed by 30 June – although buyers eager to get a deposit contribution on an ill-defined in-between Golf variant lacking the appeal of the regular hatch are out of luck. The PCP finance offers excludes the Golf SV.
