New Volkswagen Golf R-Line launches for RM169,990

Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) has just launched the all-new Volkswagen Golf R-Line in Malaysia. Bookings for the Golf R-Line were opened earlier this year, alongside the launch of the Golf GTI Mk8. Like other new Volkswagen models, the Golf R-Line is also locally assembled at the Pekan plant.

The appearance of the Volkswagen Golf R-Line mostly stays original to the timeless Golf design. Being an R-Line model, the C-signature front bumper has been lowered to slightly increase aerodynamics and performance. 17” Valencia alloy wheels and a pair of chrome-effect trapezoid faux exhaust tailpipe also give the car a sportier look.

Under the bonnet, the Volkswagen Golf R-Line is powered by a 1.4TSI turbocharged engine paired to an 8-speed transmission. It produces a maximum output of 150PS and 250Nm of torque.
