2013 VW Beetle officially gets the R-Line treatment, which is available in two separate exterior and interior packages. It’s actually kinda weird, because you can order the exterior package separately, but you can’t order just the interior package. It’s an extension of the exterior package. What’s mpre, it can only be ordered for Sport models.
Engine-wise, the Beetle Sport is available with a 1.4 TSI (118 kW/160 PS), 2.0 TSI (147 kW/200 PS) or 2.0 TDI (103 kW/140 PS). So what do you exactly get with these packages?
The exterior pack includes some good stuff including front bumpers with independent black grained air inlets and chrome surrounds for the directional indicators, diffuser at the rear, special body side panels and door mirror housings in body colour, R-Line logos on the front body beneath the A-pillars, 18-inch “Twister” alloy wheels, and machine-polished 19-inch “Tornado” alloy wheels may be selected as an option in black or white with 235/40 tyres.
As for the interior, sport seat system with seats upholstered with an active-breathing fabric in “Kyalami” design, front head restraints with R-Line badge, leather-trimmed sport steering wheel, the gear shift lever boot and the handbrake grip with decorative seams in “Art Grey”, and decorative inlays in “Dark Vanadium” are offered by default. But as optional extras you can also order black leather (“Vienna”) with R-Line badges for the seats, door sills, and leather-wrapped steering wheel.
R-Line’s exterior package is priced at € 1,290, and when the interior package is included the price starts at € 1,675.
