The Volkswagen Golf R-Line 1.4TSI Now Comes With Leather Seats

Only launched a couple of months ago, the new, fully imported Volkswagen Golf R-Line 1.4TSI now comes with 'R-Line' Vienna leather seats. Prior to this announcement, the Golf R-Line was specced with something Volkswagen called the 'Zoom' fabric. Now you can zoom around sitting on leather seats instead.

The Golf R-Line 1.4TSI  is basically a sportier entry level Golf hatchback. It comes with the 'R-Line' styling package, which includes 'R-Line' front and rear bumpers, rear spoiler, 'R-Line' badges on its radiator grille and side panels. Now, official Volkswagen distributors for Malaysia, Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia have upped the specification with the new 'R-Line' leather seats. A surprise since the car was only unveiled two months ago (as I mentioned above). 

So Volkswagen is making it tastier as leather seats are something which is somehow a much wanted option for car buyers over here. Now couple it with the temporary zero GST pricing for the Golf R-Line the carrot dangling at the end of the rod does make things a little more tempting.

The new Golf R-Line with seat upgrade is now RM159,888 (before insurance) or just RM1,669* per month when you finance the purchase through selected financial institutions . 

The Golf R-Line’s 1.4TSI is powered by a 150PS, 250Nm (between 1,500-3,500rpm)  turbocharged 1.4liter 4 cylinder engine coupled to a 7-speed dry clutch direct shift gearbox (DSG) which powers its front wheels. This current Golf is the facelifted mark 7 version which most refer to as the Mark 7.5.
