Having choices when picking out a new car is great. You get to add some of your own personality to the car and make it one of a kind, just for you. Enthusiasts especially aren’t afraid to shell out a little extra for the sake of making something their own – and that includes what color the car is.
Manufacturers tend to offer a limited range of colors, with choices being things that appeal to the masses – but not Volkswagen. How does 40 color options sound? Well if you’re in the market for a 2019 Golf R, that’s how many options await you.
In theory, this sounds like a fantastic idea on Volkswagen’s part. They are bringing back some well-loved color options from Audi and VW’s past, including Nogaro Blue Pearl, Viper Green, and Ginster Yellow to name a few.
Volkswagen states that “these options make the Golf R stand out, from the highway to the driveway, while also highlighting the owners’ personality. VWoA’s Product Marketing team worked in tandem with Volkswagen Canada to select a diverse range of colors for the 2019 model year Golf R that will appeal to owners, while still paying homage to the rich heritage of the Volkswagen color spectrum.”
All of this freedom comes with a cost, naturally. For an extra $2,500, you can have access to any of the 40 colors on Volkswagen’s list, but that likely won’t be an issue for most enthusiasts. Classic VW colors resonate deeply with lovers of the brand, and the opportunity to have that on a brand new Golf R is not something to be passed up.
Don’t worry about making the wrong choice, though. Volkswagen is adding an interactive tool to their website that allows you to apply each color hue on-screen before your car is built. Not a fan of computers? High-quality paint color cars are being shipped to VW dealers across the country.
