Volkswagen Qatar hosted “Show and Shine” event this weekend for a second year running following overwhelming demand for a return performance. 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. “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” said Antonio Leal, General Sales & Marketing Manager.

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 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” concluded Mr. Leal.

The Beetle and Golf R are now available in showroom in a wide range of colours and trims. For more information, visit or visit the new showroom on Salwa road.
