Volkswagen says the new arrivals each bring their own unique list of specifications, with styling tweaks in line with the rest of the R-Line range.
The Golf Wagon R-Line is available as an option package on the 103kW/250Nm petrol-powered 103TSI and the 110kW/320Nm diesel-powered 110TDI models; both Highline spec.
R-Line Golf Wagons get 18-inch ‘Salvador’ alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, revised front and rear bumpers and R-Line badging.
The suspension gets a sports tune on the R-Line Wagon, which also brings “a noticeably more direct and agile” progressive steering system.
Inside, there’s a sports steering wheel with paddle shifters, R-Line interior trim, sports seats and stainless steel pedals.
Tiguan R-Line buyers can expect similar exterior styling tweaks, with the package available on 132kW/280Nm 132TSI and 130kW/380Nm 130TDI models.
The 132TSI and 130TDI R-Lines get 18-inch ‘Mallory’ alloy wheels, front door-sill plates, R-Line interior features including steering wheel with paddle shifters and sports suspension.
The Tiguan is also available as a petrol-powered ‘stand-alone’ 155TSI R-Line model, lifting power from the 2.0 litre engine to 155kW and adding Adaptive Chassis Control.
The 155TSI gets all interior R-Line options from the lower-spec models, but replaces the cloth-trimmed seats with leather.
Volkswagen’s Scirocco R model will continue alongside the new R-Line range, following strong feedback from buyers and dealers to maintain the model.
