17 November 2003

The Volkswagen Passat range is receiving a modest facelift and an all-new Highline model for 2004.

Sitting between the SE and Sport trims, the Highline comes equipped with full leather, unique 15in ‘Michigan’ alloys, rear parking sensor, and heated front seats and windscreen washer jets. The new range of Passat Highlines starts at £16562 for a 2.0-litre saloon and ends at £20182 for 1.9-litre TDI estate, a £150 increase over SE models.

All ’04 Passats will feature side indicators repositioned to the wing mirrors Phaeton style, as well as new colours and upholstery changes.
