The Volkswagen Golf Wagon could soon be a little bit sexier, thanks to the brand adding a new R-Line option for the small load-lugger.

The Golf Wagon‘s R-Line styling package includes revised front and rear bumpers, new side skirts, 18-inch alloys and a new R-Line grille, not to mention fog-lights, a roof-top rear spoiler and rear diffuser.

Inside, the R-Line treatment continues with sports seats, a sportier steering wheel with leather trim, and stainless steel pedals and door sill protectors. The trim has been changed to include grey highlights and piano black elements, while the head-lining has been switched from grey to black.

It’s not only cosmetic changes. The Golf Wagon R-Line model can also be had with sports suspension that is lowered by 15mm compared to the regular car, as well as a progressive steering system and tinted rear glass.

Volkswagen Australia recently added similar R-Line package options to its Beetle and Golf hatch models, and the company’s public relations manager Kurt McGuiness told CarAdvice that the Golf wagon may follow suit.

“We’re looking at it,” McGuiness said.

If it were to be given the tick of approval, we’d expect the R-Line package to be available for buyers to option before the end of 2014.
