Volkswagen has introduced two new trim levels to its Passat range, Executive and Executive Style, to replace Highline, Sport and R-Line models.
The Executive sits above the entry level S and BlueMotion models in the Passat range and increases the amount of standard specification, while reducing complexity for customers and dealers.
The new trim comes with 17-inch alloy wheels (a full-size alloy spare is also included) exterior chrome trim, leather upholstery and matt black roof rails on the estate model.
Technology features include Volkswagen’s RNS 315 touchscreen satellite navigation system, as well as heated front seats, multifunction steering wheel, electric adjustment for the driver’s seat, climate control, automatic lights and wipers, auto-dimming interior rear-view mirror, as well as cruise control and front and rear parking sensors.
The Passat Executive comes with over £1,700-worth of equipment versus the Highline model that it replaces and prices start from £20,235.
The Executive Style features 15mm lower sports suspension, 18-inch alloy wheels, bi-xenon headlights, front fog lights, and tinted rear glass for £995 more than the Executive.
