As the Volkswagen Passat reaches the end of its lifecycle, the firm has released two new models, one of which comes with £1,700 worth of extra equipment.
According to yahoo.com, VW Passat fans can opt for the Executive or Executive Style trim levels, which replace the previous Highline models. The Executive model, which starts at £22,900, is £200 more than the Highline equivalent. However, for that extra cost, owners get £1,700 worth of extra features.
Standard equipment includes: climate control, automatic headlights and wipers, 17in alloy wheels, front and rear parking sensors, exterior chrome trim, Bluetooth connectivity and a satellite navigation system. Interior wise, upgrades include leather upholstery, heated front seats and electric driver's seat adjustment.
Executive Style models bring even more luxury into the mix, as for an extra £995 (compared to the Executive model), drivers get larger alloy wheels, suspension lowered by 15mm, bi-xenon headlights, front fog lights and tinted rear glass. According to VW, that's £2,000 worth of extra stuff, reports telegraph.co.uk.
The firm hopes that these new models will boost sales of the Passat before it disappears off the market, so it's unsurprising its trying to offer great value for money. Those wishing to purchase the new models can do so with either the saloon or estate body style.
VW is expected to reveal an all new Passat sometime in September later this year.
