Dig the look of the Volkswagen Golf R, but can’t quite justify the price of admission? VW has you covered with its R-Line packages.
Now released for the recently updated Golf hatch and Golf Variant (a.k.a. SportWagen) estate, the R-Line appearance packs get you most of the performance model’s style without the substance.
The basic option is the R-Line exterior package, which includes new bumpers, side sills, rear spoiler, and special badges – all of which give the new Golf a sportier look.
Those looking for a bit more, however, can spring for the full R-Line package, which includes the aforementioned aero kit, plus fresh wheels and interior upgrades. It comes with sport seats (upholstered either in a sporty fabric or perforated leather), a chunkier steering wheel, stainless-steel pedals, black headliner, and enhanced trim.
It’ll even display an R-Line logo on the infotainment screen on startup. Plus there are four wheel options to choose from in 17- and 18-inch diameters. European pricing starts at €1,105 for the exterior package and €1,800 for the full monte, and perhaps best of all, you can get it with whatever engine option you want.
