Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) today announced that a special batch of 3-door Golf R units is now open for booking.
Limited to only 10 units in Malaysia, the 3-door Golf R, which comes only in Lapiz Blue, is priced at RM 268,888, which is RM10,000 cheaper than the 5-door Golf R which asks for RM278,888.
Similar to its 5-door sibling, the 3-door Golf R comes with a new 2.0 TSI turbocharged engine and a 7-speed wet clutch direct shift gearbox (DSG), producing 290 PS and 380 Nm of torque which is sent to all four wheels via the 4Motion all-wheel drive system.
Key features include:
- R ‘Vienna’ perforated leather seats
- 19” Pretoria alloy wheels
- 12.3” Active Info Display
- 9.2” Discover Pro with App-Connect with Gesture Control
- LED headlights with Dynamic Cornering Lights
- LED taillights with Dynamic Indicators
- Progressive steering
However, there are a few features in the 5-door Golf R, which the 3-door doesn’t get, such as the KESSY keyless locking and engine starting system, exterior mirror memory function, and a power-adjustable driver seat.
“This truly is an opportunity for enthusiasts to be part of something special, as the 3-door Golf R is a rare car 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.
