Improved Styling Features
The VW Passat R-Line trim adds more style to the Passat range with a customised bodykit that gives a sleek and sporty image. At the front, the unique bumper includes fog lights with cornering function, and a 15mm lower ride height.
Standout features include bi-xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights and LED taillights, chrome bumper trim, and dark-tinted rear windows. At the rear, a bootlid spoiler (tailgate spoiler on the Estate) completes the look, while side skirts give a ground-hugging look that’s enhanced by the distinctive rear bumper and 18-inch ‘Kansas’ alloy wheels, wrapped in low-profile 235/40 tyres.
The interior is fitted with standard equipment based on the Passat S and includes Bluetooth, USB and iPod connectivity, DAB digital radio and a leather-trimmed multi-function steering wheel.
