Volkswagen has revealed the new Golf R-Line, which is a sporty version of the standard Golf for people that don’t want to make the jump to either the GTI or Golf R. Like other R-Line models in the VW lineup, the Golf R-Line gets some styling upgrades and a few performance modifications.

On the styling front, the Golf R-Line gets a rear spoiler, side skirts and radiator grille, bespoke air intakes, R-Line front bumpers and fog lights, R-Line rear bumper and diffuser, and 17-inch Singapore alloy wheels. The suspension has also been modified, which lowers the ride height by 10 millimeters.

Inside you’ll find stainless steel pedals and front door sills, black lead grey inlays and door trims, Sports Race design front seats with R-Line logo, a black headliner, leather gear knob and an R-Line leather multifunction sports steering wheel.

VW hasn’t announced if the Golf R-Line will be available in the U.S., but it makes sense, since VW currently offers the R-Line trim on the Beetle, CC, Tiguan and Touareg.
