Volkswagen R GmbH has recently announced that the Golf R and Passat R models have been launched in Malaysia.
After making their official debut last year, the new Volkswagen Golf R and Passat R models are finally here and the German based automaker has just launched the two in Malaysia. Volkswagen says that the Golf R’s engine has been downsized, from the 3.2 liter V6 to the 2.0 liter four-cylinder TSI turbo, but besides the switch, this is actually the most powerful Golf ever, coming with 255 PS and 330 Nm of torque available between 2,400 and 5,200 rpm. The engine is mated to a six-speed dual-clutch DSG transmission and power is being sent to the 4Motion all-wheel drive system, which is allowing the model to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.7 seconds, before reaching a limited top speed of 250 km/h.
With an average fuel consumption which has been improved by 13,4 percent, at 8.4 liters every 100 km/h, the new Volkswagen Golf R will definitely attract some new customers in Malaysia. The model is coming as a five-door hatchback and it’s packed with features like the ACC (Adaptive Chassis Control), ESP with delayed intervention, internally ventilated discs on all wheels with R brake calipers, 19-inch Talladega rims wrapped in 235/35 tires, central tailpipes, bi-xenon headlamps with dynamic cornering, bucket seats, climatronic, sat nav, 8-speaker DYNAUDIO Excite 300W stereo, electric sunroof and six-color choices, for RM268,888.
The Volkswagen Passat CC R-Line is powered by a 3.6 liter V6 engine, generating a total output of 300 PS and 350 Nm of torque available between 2,400 and 5,300. The model can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.6 seconds, and just like the hot-hatch, this is coming with a six-speed DSG transmission, which is sending power to the 4Motion all-wheel drive system.
The Passat CC R is also coming with bi-xenon and bending lights as standard, along with multifunction steering wheel, aluminum inserts, sports seats with Nappa leather, dual-zone climate control, 600w 10-speaker audio system, keyless entry and start, electronic parking brake, rear view camera, touch screen stereo with integrated sat nav and nine-color choices for RM373,88.
