If you’re looking to head to a mall for a lunch break, or for dinner after work, try making the 1 Utama Shopping Centre the destination. Aside from the obvious abundance there, there’s also an array of new Volkswagen Golfs on display there.
Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia has kicked off the Volkswagen Tour 2022 – with the first roadshow at 1 Utama Shopping Centre – between 23rd to the 27th of February 2022, between 10 am to 10 pm at the Centre Court, Ground Floor (Old Wing). Test drives are available for selected models.
Other vehicles on display include the Arteon R-Line 4MOTION, the recently updated Passat R-Line and Passat Elegance. The Arteon has recently seen an increase in price, up RM9k to RM258k, but with no changes to its specifications.
As for the Passat range, the Elegance now comes with a different wheel design, and fresh new “button-less” air-con control panel just like the Golf Mk 8 and Arteon. The Passat R-Line on the other hand, received a performance upgrade; bumping it to 220 hp and 250 Nm, a 30 hp and 30 Nm increase.
As for the main event of the roadshow, there will be two variants of the all-new Golf Mk8 on display – the R-Line and GTI. The R-Line is expected to be priced between RM155k to RM165k, while the Golf GTI starts from RM211k.
The Golf R-Line gets a 1.4-litre TSI engine, paired to an 8-speed automatic gearbox, while the more powerful GTI is powered by the 4th generation EA888 2.0-litre turbocharged engine, paired to a 7-speed dual-clutch. The GTI is armed with 245 hp and 370 Nm, while the R-Line still pushes out a respectable 150 hp and 250 Nm.
