Dubai, 16 September, 2015: Al Nabooda Automobiles has welcomed a new addition to the Volkswagen R family, with the arrival of the much anticipated sporty Beetle R-Line.

The new Beetle R-Line joins the dynamic Volkswagen R model 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 with bold detailing that are aggressive by design.

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. Tying together the powerful look of the R-Line model are the 20-inch “Monterey” alloy wheels, tucked under the muscular fenders. 

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.

Thierry Seys, General Manager at Volkswagen, Al Nabooda Automobiles, said, “Fans of our sporty models will enjoy the new Beetle R-Line, which boasts the comfortable dimensions of a luxury hatchback and the dynamic attributes of the Volkswagen R family.
