2012 LA Auto Show: Volkswagen Beetle R-Line will go on sale in the United States

Article by Christian A., on November 28, 2012

At the 2012 LA Auto Show, Volkswagen announced that the new Beetle R-Line will also be available in the United States. Set to hit the dealerships in early 2013, the new Vw Beelte R-Line will only be offered on the Turbo model and will feature a number of exterior and interior enhancements in order to be differentiated from the standard models.

This includes a more aggressive front bimper with black surfaces and chrome-framed turn signals, a new rear bumper with an integrated air diffuser, new R-Line logos, 19-inch “Tornado” aluminium-alloy wheels as standard and new Bi-Xenon headlights with LED DRLs. The interior will also be updated and customers will get custom stainless-steel kickplates, a steering wheel badge, a unique color dashboard panel, and contrasting-color stitching on the seats, shifter knob, and handbrake lever.

No words about the price yet! For those who don’t know, the R-Line is developed by Volkswagen R GmbH especially for drivers who want the sporty and aggressive styling of the Volkswagen R models but without the additional performance.
