Herndon, VA –  Volkswagen of America, Inc. announced today it will offer the R-Line derivative on two additional models for the U.S. market. Joining the CC R-Line and recently introduced Beetle R-Line coupe, the Tiguan R-Line and Touareg R-Line will be added to the Volkswagen line-up for model year 2014. Both models will be introduced at the 2013 North American International Auto Show.

The Touareg R-Line and Tiguan R-Line models feature an aggressive appearance package and interior enhancements that provide an all-around dynamic and sporting appearance. Volkswagen R GmbH has developed the R-Line for drivers who want the sporty and aggressive styling of the Volkswagen R models, but without the additional engine performance.

Tiguan R-Line
Enhancing the Tiguan SEL’s impressive list of standard equipment, the Tiguan R-Line adds performance-inspired exterior and interior treatments. The R-Line is available in front-wheel-drive or 4Motion® all-wheel-drive configuration and features the award-winning 2.0-liter TSI® turbocharged four-cylinder engine from the iconic Volkswagen GTI.

On the outside, the R-Line features unique “Mallory” 19-inch aluminum alloy wheels on lower-profile all-season tires. Paired with a sport-tuned suspension, the combination allows for more dynamic driving characteristics. Additional enhancements include body-colored side-skirts featuring chrome trim; wheelarch extensions; R-Line rear spoiler; LED license plate illumination; and a front grille mounted R-Line badge. Bi-xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights are also standard.

Inside, the Tiguan R-Line features “metallic-finish” dash and door trim; a sporty flat-bottom R-Line multi-function steering wheel with paddle shifters; stainless-steel R-Line scuff plates; aluminum sport pedals; and a black headliner.

Along with the interior treatments, the Tiguan R-Line becomes the fourth Volkswagen model to offer the award-winning Fender Premium Audio System. The system features a 10-channel, 400 watt amplifier with eight speakers and a rear subwoofer.

Touareg R-Line
The Touareg R-Line adds a host of dynamic and sporty elements to the long list of standard equipment on the Touareg Lux trim. Naturally, all Touareg models come standard with 4Motion all-wheel drive mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and the R-Line adds a sport-tuned suspension to either the 3.6-liter VR6 gasoline or 3.0-liter TDI Clean Diesel engine.

The Touareg R-Line also adds an aggressive exterior appearance distinguished by 20-inch aluminum-alloy wheels; a unique front bumper fascia; side skirts; R-Line badges; LED taillights; and oval-shaped dual exhaust tips at the rear.

Inside, the R-Line theme continues with unique high-gloss black and brushed aluminum trim on the dashboard, center console and doors. Stainless-steel R-Line scuff plates, aluminum sport pedals, and an R-Line steering wheel round out the model’s interior enhancements.

Both models are slated to go on sale in the third quarter of 2013. Pricing will be announced closer to launch.
