Adding to its character is a redesigned lighting signature – an all-LED headlight system, front and rear sequential turn signals and a three-wing tail light design – completing the overall look of this global bestseller.
Inside, the new Passat comes with an assortment of new materials and decorative design elements that provide the cabin with a luxurious and stylish ambience.
Updates include newly-designed door trims, 30-colour ambient lighting, and a new leather multi-function steering wheel with new ergonomic multifunction button for convenience and connectivity at the touch of a button.
