The Golf Estate Concept R-Line was designed by the German automaker to show off what the potential is for the new body Golf. This is also the first time the Golf Estate has been given an R-Line trim. Setting it apart from its standard production counterpart, the Golf Estate Concept R-Line features a custom front end, modified rear, new side skirts, and 18-inch R-Line wheels. On the inside, the leather interior is contrasted by carbon fiber overlay elements.

As for powerplant, the R-Line Concept is powered by a 2.0-liter TDI with 148 hp and 236 lb-ft of torque. All the power is transferred to the road through the 4MOTION all-wheel drive which now features a new Haldex-5 clutch.
Details on the front end includes dominant air intakes in the middle that has been bordered by front spoilers match painted Lapis Blue Metallic. As for the side, the high-gloss black sill trims are just one of the many eye-catching features of the concept. The rear of the Golf Estate Concept R-Line is dominated by a sporty and unique black diffuser while the roof spoiler is a nice, subtle enhancement.
With the new seventh-generation Golf set to go on sale in America later this year, it’s not yet clear if Volkswagen intends to offer an R-Line trim of the Jetta SportWagon on our shores. And who knows, perhaps a high-powered Golf Estate R is coming down the pipes too?
