The concept of Volkswagen R-Line descends from Volkswagen R, a performance-oriented subsidiary of Volkswagen that was founded in 2010 to be a sports label of the carmaker. R models represent the top performance vehicles of the Volkswagen brand.

R-Line features are available in the form of special trims, and more recently packages, on select Volkswagen models. R-Line trims and packages bring the looks and feel of Volkswagen R vehicles to other Volkswagen models, but do not provide upgraded engine power.

R-Line trims and packages make the car they’re applied to look and feel racing-inspired. It’s a great way to express one’s individuality and make a sporty statement.

Reversing camera

With parking sensors you’ll feel like you have eyes in the back of your head. Front and rear sensors, rear view camera, audio signals and a visual display guide your every move so you never need to worry about getting into - or out of – a tight spot again. Or if you’re feeling more hands off, Park Assist can actually steer the car into a space too.1

Scheduled service

Scheduled Services are the first five standard scheduled service intervals as set out in the Service Schedule, which are scheduled to occur:

(a) for Model Year 2018 to current Crafter vehicles and Model Year 2021 onwards Amarok vehicles, each interval of 20,000 km or 12 months (whichever occurs first); and
(b) for all other models, each interval of 15,000 km or 12 months (whichever occurs first) within the Eligibility Period.

Scheduled Services include parts, labour and fluids for the service items recommended at each Service Interval by the vehicle manufacturer. Volkswagen recommends vehicle owners maintain their vehicle at the recommended servicing intervals.

Service initiated roadside assist (SIRA)

If you service your Volkswagen at an Authorised Volkswagen Dealer, you can receive 12 months Service Initiated Roadside Assistance (SIRA).

To be eligible for SIRA your vehicle must be in a roadworthy condition and have the Volkswagen standard scheduled service carried out by a participating Authorised Volkswagen Dealer.

Following the service schedule ensures your vehicle receives the love and care it deserves. As such, vehicles presented to an Authorised Volkswagen Dealer will be eligible for a SIRA Policy up to 42 days after, or 2,500 kilometres above the service schedule milestone. If previous services were missed or completed outside our network, you will also be eligible when you return to an authorised Volkswagen Dealer for a standard scheduled service.

Vehicles that are more than 9 years old from the original new car warranty start date, are not eligible for SIRA. The SIRA policy will expire on or after 10 years from the original new car warranty start date, and no further SIRA policy will not be activated. No more than 9 SIRA Policies can be applied to a vehicle in its lifetime.

Start Stop System

The Start/Stop system is designed to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. It achieves this by automatically switching off the engine while the vehicle is stationary and then starting it again automatically when the driver wants to drive off. There are certain operating conditions where the Start/Stop system is deactivated (e.g. during engine warm-up), please refer to the Owner’s Manual for full operating information.


Volkswagen’s family of TDI turbocharged diesel engines commands every superlative. Using direct injection, Volkswagen diesels offer supreme engine performance and outstanding fuel economy. All this, in turn, should lead to cost savings on maintenance, servicing and running costs. The TDI engines are as smooth as they are capable — none more so than the powerful V6 unit that is available in the Golf 2.0 TDIOpens an external link, TouaregOpens an external link and AmarokOpens an external link. Volkswagen engines feature cutting-edge diesel particulate filters for reduced potentially harmful particulate emissions into the environment.


Torque is a measure of the force that turns your wheels, and kilowatts (kW) is the rate at which a car engine can produce that force. You feel torque when you accelerate from a stop; you feel horsepower when you’re building speed on a highway.

Traffic Jam Assist

Volkswagen developed Traffic Jam Assist on the basis of Lane Assist and ACC. Traffic Jam Assist is available on models with automatic transmission. The system makes driving in traffic jams or stop and go conditions considerably more convenient. Thanks to the assistance systems installed, the vehicle can drive in a partly automated mode up to 60 km/h.1

TSI Engine

Volkswagen TSI technology brings more efficiency from smaller units — resulting in the ability to travel longer distances from less fuel. Built to be strong and light, TSI engines all deliver high specific torque from much lower revs to make Volkswagen cars more lively, economical and clean-running. Volkswagen TSI engines combine direct injection with turbocharging and also feature an intercooler to deliver more efficient motoring. What this translates to for the driver is effortless performance, immediate response and reduced engine noise. It’s no wonder that the TSI is one of the most highly regarded family of engines in the automotive world.
