VW replaces SE trim on Passat range

Volkswagen is replacing its Passat SE model with a new variant called the Passat Highline.

The SE was VW’s best selling Passat variant last year, accounting for over half of the range’s UK sales.

The new permanent addition Highline features a higher level of standard specification than the SE it replaces. The cloth trim is now full Vienna leather upholstery complete with heated front seats, a multifunction steering wheel and a set of four carpet mats.

The Highline also adds 17-inch alloys to the Passat’s standard equipment which includes air conditioning, an eight-speaker stereo system and cruise control.

VW says the combined value of the new equipment totals £2,125, yet the Highline will cost £250 more than the SE.

Highline customers can choose from a .8-litre TSI 158bhp engine or a new 2.0-litre TDI common rail diesel.

The new Passat Highline is on sale now in either saloon or estate bodystyles.
