Tiguan R Leather Seats

Post by Nick-St » Thu Jun 10, 2021 8:42 am

Following on from the leather seat question in the other thread, I've just found this picture of a Golf 8 R leather seat which matches the description of the Tiguan R Nappa seat:

Interestingly, the Golf R can't be ordered with leather in the UK configurator!

Still waiting for yours to arrive at the dealer Nick?
I've given up and removed the leather as i want the buckets seats

One of the mods on VWROC does have the leather in her Golf 8R, maybe VW have removed the option?

Hopefully not too long now!
German R brochure clearly shows the 2 seat options..

Wait a few years and I am sure some will turn up at the breakers 😁

Looks like the UK brochure has incorrect wording then - as the German version has the Nappa option as the standard R-Line type seat. (Although the brochure is dated December 2020 which pre-dates the UK brochure!). Maybe the integrated headrest seat was a very short lived Golf option!

Who knows!!
