Volkswagen Golf R-Line Makes Malaysian Debut
Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) today unveiled the new Golf R-Line at the Malaysia Autoshow 2018, completing the new Golf family line-up in Malaysia.
Priced at RM166,990, the car is decked in the R-Line styling package which includes the ‘R-Line’ front and rear bumper, rear spoiler, ‘R-Line’ badges on radiator grille and side panels, and 17-inch ‘Singapore’ alloy wheels.
Under the hood, the Golf R-Line’s 1.4-litre TSI turbocharged engine is mated with a 7-speed dry clutch direct shift gearbox (DSG), resulting in an output of 150 PS and a torque of 250 Nm between 1,500 to 3,500 rpm.
The Golf R-Line offers the best of both worlds when it comes to connectivity and convenience, thanks to its 12.3-inch Active Info Display and 8-inch screen Composition Media with App-Connect (which runs systems such as MirrorLink, Android Auto and Apple Carplay).
Other convenient key features include LED headlights (with Dynamic Cornering Lights), 2-Zone Climatronic air conditioning system, rear-view camera, ‘KESSY’, electronic parking brake and Driving Mode Selections with four different modes namely Eco, Normal, Sport and Individual.
Equipped with seven airbags, the Golf R-Line comes with an array of advanced safety features such as Maneuver Braking which automatically brakes the car when it senses objects up 10 km/h during parking. Also available is the Automatic Post Collision Brake System where the brakes are automatically applied to prevent subsequent impact when the vehicle is involved in a collision.
The Golf R-Line also comes with Rest Assist and Proactive Occupant Protection System, which looks out for the driver and occupants in the vehicle while the Advanced Electronic Differential Lock (XDS) provides added grip during fast cornering.
It is available in Tumeric Yellow, Atlantic Blue, Pure White, Deep Black, White Silver and Indium Grey.
