Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) has announced the availability of the Volkswagen Golf 1.4 TSI R-Line with Vienna leather seats, which will carry a nett price of RM159,888 (OTR price without insurance is RM160,608).

Prior to this, an early batch of Golf R-Line cars came with Zoom fabric upholstery like on the 1.4 TSI Sportline, which was sold at a lower price point (RM157,488 nett without GST). However, from now onwards, only the leather-equipped version of the Golf R-Line will be offered.

The Vienna leather seats (with integrated R-Line logos on the front backrests) aren’t exactly new additions as they were part of the Golf R-Line’s initial specifications when it was first launched back in March this year. This announcement is merely to confirm that customers can now order the Golf R-Line in said specification.

Along with the leather seats, the Golf R-Line also comes with an exterior package featuring dedicated front and rear bumpers, and a sports rear diffuser with trapezoidal chrome exhaust trim. The Golf R-Line rides on 17-inch Singapore alloy wheels wrapped with 225/45 series tyres.

The equipment list also includes adaptive LED projector headlamps, LED taillights with sequential turn signals, 12.3-inch Active Info Display, seven airbags, dual-zone climate control, 8.0-inch Composition Media infotainment system with eight speakers and a rear view camera.

Like the Sportline, a 1.4 litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine powers the R-Line, providing 150 PS at 5,000 to 6,000 rpm and 250 Nm of torque from 1,500 to 3,500 rpm. Drive is sent to the front wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch DSG transmission along with an XDS extended differential lock. Zero to 100 km/h is reached in 8.2 seconds and the top speed is 216 km/h.
