Volkswagen presents the Beetle R-Line

Article by Christian A., on September 14, 2012

Volkswagen is currently offering the R-Line appearance package based on the top of the line Beetle Sport model that spices up the styling of the small cars’ exterior and interior. The R-Line is an appearance package exclusively. The car gets features that build on the sporty appearance of the model such as a new front bumper with bigger air intakes and chrome surrounds.

In addition, the R-Line Beetle equipped vehicles get a rear diffuser, new body side panels, and the option between 18-inch alloy wheels or 19-inch alloy wheels painted black or white. These would all carry R-Line badging. Consumers can get the exterior package by itself. However, the upgraded R-Line interior only comes with the exterior appearance package.

The interior enhancements include sport seats, front head restraints with R-Line stitching, leather trimmed steering wheel and gear shift leather with grey stitching. The sport look is improved with the decorative inlays that get a “Dark Vanadium” finish. The Beetle sport is offered with three engines: (1) a 1.4-liter TSI that produces 157 hp, 92) a 2.0-liter TSI that delivers 197 hp, or (3) a 2.0 TDI that makes 138 hp.
