Volkswagen celebrates the launch with the world premiere of an equally exclusive sporty limited edition: the Passat Variant R-Line Edition. Limited to 2,000 units. All-wheel drive (4MOTION) with
The new Passat Variant 4MOTION R-Line Edition configuration comes in a unique design, with the high-tech all-rounder painted in the new “Moonstone Grey” finish. A number of black feature elements have been added to provide contrast, most prominent among them the high-gloss black roof. The roof-edge spoiler, roof rail, and wing mirror caps are also black. The side window frames, rear diffuser, headlight rims and all trim also come in high-gloss black. The dark LED tail lights and high-gloss black 19-inch alloy wheels (“Pretoria” type) have also been consistently integrated into this colour scheme.
Black also dominates the interior. Driver and passengers sit on R-Line sports seats, with seat centre panels covered with fine-quality Nappa leather, and the side bolsters with carbon leather. Pedals are finished in stainless steel (brushed), and the side sills (with R-Line logo) also come in stainless steel. New ambient lighting brings a wide range of colours into play.
Another new feature is Travel Assist. This assistance system means that the Passat is one of the first cars worldwide to have partially assisted driving at up to 210 km/h. It allows the Volkswagen to take over steering, braking and acceleration. All the driver needs to do is keep their hands on the steering wheel – the Passat checks that is happening using the brand’s first capacitive multifunction leather steering wheel, which reacts to a gentle touch. Travel Assist is a fusion of the front camera, Front Assist pedestrian monitoring system, Park Assist parking manoeuvre system, Side Assist lane changing system, and the ACC automatic distance control system, into a new, intelligent assistance system.
