MILTON KEYNES, UNITED KINGDOM – Jan 2, 2013: Volkswagen is adding even more luxury and style to the best-selling Passat range, with the introduction of two new trim levels: Executive and Executive Style.

The Executive sits above the entry level S and BlueMotion models in the Passat range, and comes with a comprehensive standard specification.

On the outside, new 17-inch ‘Michigan’ alloy wheels (a full-size alloy spare is also included) are complemented by exterior chrome trim, along with matt black roof rails on the Estate.

Inside, the S’s standard DAB radio, MDI multi-device interface with USB and iPhone cables and Bluetooth connectivity are added to with Volkswagen’s RNS 315 touchscreen satellite navigation system. The leather-trimmed multifunction wheel and gear lever are enhanced by Vienna leather upholstery, including heated front seats, and electric adjustment for the driver’s seat.

Standard 2Zone climate control helps to keep the cabin at the perfect temperature for both driver and front passenger, while automatic lights and wipers ensure vision is optimised at all times, as does the auto-dimming interior rear-view mirror. Cruise control is also fitted, along with front and rear parking sensors, with both audible output and optical display.

In total, the Passat Executive comes with over 1,700-worth of equipment versus the Highline model that it replaces, for a premium of just 200, meaning on the road prices start from 20,235.

The Executive Style builds on the Executive, but as the name suggests, it comes with a more distinctive look. Hunkered down on 15 mm lower sports suspension, the Executive Style comes with 18-inch ‘Kansas’ alloy wheels, bi-xenon headlights, front fog lights, and tinted rear glass together worth more than 2,000 for just 995 over the Executive.

The Executive and Executive Style trims are available to order from 2 January 2014, when they replace the Highline, Sport and R-Line trims in the line-up.
