2013 Geneva Motor Show: Vw introduces the Golf Estate/Variant Concept R-Line

Article by Christian A., on March 5, 2013

After we saw the Golf 7 Variant and the Golf 7 Variant TDI BlueMotion, Volkswagen decided to show us at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show the Golf Estate/Variant Concept R-Line. As expected, the new Golf Estate Concept R-Line highlights the dynamic potential of the new body version of the Golf.

For those who don’t know, this is the first time an R-Line package is introduced on the Golf Estate/Variant. The concept features a customized front end which include a new front bumper, new side sills, a new rear bumper with integrated black diffuser and chromed tailpipes, but also a roof spoiler. The exterior design is completed by the 18-inch R-Line wheels.

The already wide track of the new Golf Estate (1,549 mm in the front, 1,520 mm in the back) and the 18-inch wheel with 225/40 tyres used for the concept car make for a sporty appearance of the rear end, which is in no way inferior to a new Golf GTI or GTD.

Inside, the Golf Estate Concept R-Line comes with high-tone nappa leather in “Space Blue” black carbon leather on the inner surfaces of th side supports, a sporty steering wheel,

The designers of the interior opted for “Crystal Grey” for the decorative stitching. The Golf Estate Concept R-Line offers the same cargo volume, 605 litres with the back seats up and a total of 1,620 litres with the rear seats folded.

The concept is powered by an efficient 110 kW / 150 PS 2.0-litre TDI of the latest construction type. The power of the engine (up to 320 Newton metres) is superbly translated to the road by a 4MOTION all-wheel drive (with new Haldex-5 clutch).
