Volkswagen Qatar hosted ‘Show and Shine’ event this weekend for a second year running following overwhelming demand for a return performance.

General Sales & Marketing Manager, Antonio Leal, said:

The Beetle, with its modern, more masculine features, will be a big hit. The new model is a step-change from its predecessor with a powerful new engine, 210HP from a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine, a 6-speed dual-clutch gearbox (DSG) with a top speed of 227 km/h.’

The event held at the state-of-the-art new showroom on Salwa road, witnessed over 100 Volkswagen fans that attended the one day event. Guests enjoyed music and prizes before Volkswagen Qatar debuted the all-new Beetle and Golf R in showroom.


The Beetle and Golf R are two of the most exciting Volkswagen models to arrive in Qatar this year. The Beetle – arguably the world’s most recognisable car – is now available in Qatar in three exciting configurations: S, SE and SEL and is a reinterpretation of the original design, which made its debut over seven decades ago. The new model offers a distinctive bold, dynamic and masculine look with a powerful new engine.


Volkswagen Golf R

Leal said:

The new Golf R is more powerful than ever and has been one of the most eagerly anticipated new models for 2014 as a favourite amongst the Qatari and expatriate public. It’s arrival in showroom has created a huge buzz and we’re eager to hear back from our customers that test drive this powerful car on the roads of Doha.’


The Golf R, unveiled at the Qatar Motor Show earlier this year, transfers its turbocharged power to the road via a permanent all-wheel-drive system; in this case, the latest version of the 4MOTION® system with a fifth-generation Haldex® coupling. With a six-speed dual-clutch gearbox (DSG), the new Golf R completes the classic sprint in 5.0 seconds and can reach a top speed of 250 km/h.

The Beetle and Golf R are now available in showroom in a wide range of colours and trims.
