What is Volkswagen R-Line?

If you are a Volkswagen owner, enthusiast, or simply a follower, you may have heard something about R-Line. This is a term passed around but it may not be entirely clear what it means. So, what is Volkswagen R-Line, exactly? R-Line refers to a trim option or options for select Volkswagen models. The R-Line trim offers exclusive premium features and sport styling, and some models even offer better performance. Depending on the specific Volkswagen vehicle, the R-Line will sit at a specific point in the lineup, often providing extra value. Below we have broken down the four models that offer R-Line trims.
