2018 Volkswagen Golf
Volkswagen Malaysia has re-organized its model portfolio for the Golf VII by splitting its sole 1.4 TSI variant to two trim levels, both being offered at improved levels of equipment and features. They are:
1.4 TSI Sportline – RM155,990
1.4 TSI R-Line – RM166,990
The Sportline comes with 16-inch wheels, halogen headlamps, LED DRL, LED tail lamps, dual-zone automatic air conditioning with rear vents, 8-inch touch screen infotainment system with 8 speakers and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, 7 airbags, fabric upholstery, and electronic parking brake with hold function.
For RM11,000 more, the R-line adds features like R-line kit which consists of bumpers, side skirts, front grille, rear spoiler and fender emblems, 17-inch wheels, dynamic cornering lamps, LED head lamps with dynamic range control, sequential-lighting indicators, and rear view camera.
The interior meanwhile adds niceties such as keyless entry and start, cruise control, 12.3-inch active info display, driving mode selection, door sill plates, and foot pedals in aluminium.
As with the current model, the facelift Golf VII for Malaysia is powered by Volkswagen’s latest EA211 1.4-litre TSI petrol direct injection engine. Outputs are 150 PS, which is accompanied by 250 Nm of torque available from 1,500 to 3,500rpm. Paired to the brand's now famous DSG dual-clutch transmission (dry-type) with seven ratios, the Golf 1.4TSI accelerates from rest to 100 km/h in 8.2 seconds and returns 5.2-litre/100 km of fuel consumption. Engine start-stop system with regenerative braking is also standard.
Meanwhile the sports car-teasing, segment-creator Golf GTI now has 230 PS / 350 Nm 2.0-litre turbocharged engine mated to a 6-speed DSG transmission (wet-type) providing propulsion to the front wheels. 0-100 km/h arrives in 6.4 seconds. The GTI is known for its handling superiority thanks to a host of features, such as a more advanced electronic differential lock, 18-inch tires and wheels, quick ratio steering, and Dynamic Chassis Control with drive mode selector. The GTI is priced from RM239,990.
For those who still need more track-day items in their Golf and continue to aim for supercar-level laptimes at Sepang circuit, there is the Golf R. 290 PS / 380 Nm outputs are transferred to a 7-speed DSG transmission and then to 4Motion all-wheel drive. This combination propels the Golf R from zero to 100 km/h in 5.1 seconds. The exhaust gases in the Golf R exit out through 4 tail pipes, compared to two in the GTI.
Higher cornering speed and stability is further attained through larger 19-inch x 8-inch wide wheels and 235/35R19 tyres. The Golf R also received a larger infotainment screen, increased to 9.2 inches and also fitted with a 10GB jukebox for audio file storage. The Golf R is priced from RM 295,990.
All new Volkswagen Golf models comes with a free 3-year maintenance package, coupled with a 5-year, unlimited mileage warranty coverage and 5-year roadside assistance.
