Beetle R-Line joins Volkswagen line-up in the Middle East
Volkswagen Middle East welcomes a new addition to the Volkswagen R family this September, with the arrival of the sporty Beetle R-Line. The new model joins the line-up, which currently includes the iconic Golf R, the Scirocco R, and the Touareg, Tiguan and CC R-Line models, developed by Volkswagen R GmbH, a division of Volkswagen responsible for developing sport-tuned models.
The Beetle R-Line exhibits the sporty Volkswagen R GmbH racing heritage, the bumper features added air intakes front and centre to feed more air to the turbocharged 210 HP 2.0-litre engine. The rear of the car presents a lower diffuser and a large spoiler in addition to R-Line door entry sills.
To match the sporty exterior, Volkswagen has fitted the R-Line with a bold interior, including two-tone cloth sport seats, a multi-function leather-wrapped steering wheel with R-Line badging and a set of sport gauges mounted on the top of the centre console adding racing flair to the statement R-Line model.
Thomas Milz, Managing Director of Volkswagen Middle East, said: “Volkswagen motorsport heritage has enabled us to harness racing technology and designs to develop models that are at home both on the track and the roads of the region.”
The Beetle R-Line will be available at Volkswagen retailers in Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Dubai, Kuwait and Qatar from September 2015.
