The Volkswagen Golf R-Line is the accomplished hatchback we all know and love, but with added sports appeal.
The R-Line’s racy good looks owe much to its model-specific body kit that includes sports suspension, a lower ride height, and 17-inch alloy wheels. The front fascia, too, provides the car with a more assertive look, as does a stylishly creased bodyline and rear spoiler that delivers extra finesse to the roofline. There’s room inside for five travellers inside the vehicle’s well-built, smartly attired cabin, and front-row occupants are provided with rather natty sports seats.
A 1.6-litre 113bhp diesel engine propels the entry-level Volkswagen Golf R-Line, delivering 0-60mph in approximately ten seconds, as much as 67.3mpg and CO2 emissions from just 111g/km. For a little more pace and power, choose a model that is fitted with a 2.0-litre 148bhp diesel unit. This produces 340Nm of torque, produces 0-60mph in roughly 8.4 seconds, manages a noteworthy 65.7mpg, and also produces emissions as low as 111g/km.
Technology and safety
An eight-speaker sound system is included as standard, boasting DAB digital radio, among other things. USB and AUX ports are included too, as is Bluetooth connectivity, which facilitates both audio streaming and hands-free telephone communications.
This sporty hatchback happens to be a very safe one, as is indicated by the five-star crash-test rating it has been awarded by Euro NCAP. A whole array of passive protective features and driver aids are included. As well as numerous airbags, ISOFIX child-seat fixtures, tyre-pressure sensors and rear-parking sensors, the car possesses front fog lamps that provide optimal illumination when it’s needed most.
