Volkswagen is adding more luxury and style to the Passat range with new Executive and Executive Style trim levels.
Executive sits above entry-level S and BlueMotion and adds 17in Michigan alloy wheels with full-size alloy spare, exterior chrome trim, matt black roof rails on the estate, satellite navigation, leather upholstery, heated front seats, electric adjustment for the driver's seat, 2Zone climate control, automatic lights, wipers and dimming rear-view mirror, cruise control and front and rear parking sensors with audible and optical display.
Passat Executive comes with more £1,700 worth of equipment versus the Highline model that it replaces, for a premium of just £200 with on-the-road prices from £20,235.
Executive Style gets a more distinctive look with 15mm lower sports suspension, 18in Kansas alloys, bi-xenon headlights, front fog lights and tinted rear glass together worth more than £2,000 for just £995 over the Executive.
Executive and Executive Style replace Highline, Sport and R-Line trims.
