Wolfsburg edition skates the gap between the base and mid-range Passat

It seems more than a little odd to me to create a special edition of the vehicle with the goal of being cheap. That is exactly what Volkswagen has done with the announcement of a new trim level for the Passat that is coming in the middle of 2013. The car is the Volkswagen Passat Wolfsburg edition.

The base price for the car will be $23,495. Volkswagen says that it will slot in its line between the base S model and the mid-level SE trim. The Wolfsburg edition will get several convenience features added to the base model at competitive price. The car will use a six-speed automatic transmission.

It will also feature Bluetooth technology, a multifunction steering wheel with audio and phone controls, automatic headlights, power exterior mirrors, and driver seat lumbar support. The Wolfsburg edition will also get distinctive 16-inch wheels, perforated V-Tex leatherette seating, power heated driver seat, satellite radio, and more.

VW Passat TDI 40K Long-Term Test Wrap: VW’s Family Sedan Embraces the American Way

Nov 4 2014 10:19am CST | Source: Car and Driver

Family sedans from Chevrolet, Ford, Honda, and Toyota have all earned their places in our culture, but Volkswagen’s Passat has always struggled to assimilate. Between its arrival in 1974 as the Dasher and its sixth-generation redesign in 2012, the Passat was at times too small, too unreliable, and too expensive. Sales remained relatively microscopic. Just 12,497 Passats moved in 2010; Mitsubishi came close to unloading more Galants. Back then, the Passat di ...
