3-door Volkswagen Golf R available in Malaysia – but only 10 units

The Volkswagen Golf R is already something special in the Golf range and if you want something still more exclusive, Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) is offering 10 units of the 3-door variant which are priced at RM268,888 each. All of them are available only in Lapiz Blue, a signature colour of the Golf R.

Similar to the 5-door variant, the 3-door Golf R comes with a new 2.0 TSI turbocharged engine and a 7-speed wet clutch direct shift gearbox (DSG). The output of 290 ps/380Nm goes to all four wheels via the 4MOTION all-wheel drive system.

The ultimate performance hatch, the Golf R has set and broken numerous track records around the world. On the road and track, its appeal lies in the fact that it is one of the most well-rounded cars available in the market.

The Golf R comes with the R ‘Vienna’ perforated leather seats, 19-inch Pretoria alloy wheels, a 12.3-inch Active Info Display, Discover Pro with App-Connect with Gesture Control, LED headlights with Dynamic Cornering Lights, LED taillights with Dynamic Indicators, and progressive steering.

“This truly is an opportunity for enthusiasts to be part of something special, as the 3-door Golf R is a rare beast here in Malaysia. With such a cult following, we are confident that all 10 units will be sold very quickly,“ said Erik Winter, Managing Director of VPCM.
