Volkswagen Passat Highline Plus Available in the UK

German carmaker Volkswagen announced today it will release a special edition of its Passat and Passat Estate, dubbed Highline Plus. The edition will add to the existing offer on the Highline trim (which replaced the SE in February 2008).The model will be priced starting from 20,515 pounds, £750 above the price of the regular Highline.

The Plus comes equipped with chrome grille surround and louvres, Bluetooth telephone connectivity with touchscreen adapter, as well as Volkswagen’s RNS 310 satellite navigation unit.

RNS 310 is a CD-based satellite navigation system with integrated radio and MP3-compatible CD player. It uses a five-inch color screen, an SD card reader, plus AUX-in slot for connection to external multimedia devices. It will soon be made available on other Passat models, with the price set at £795.

The Highline Plus takes all the equipment found in the regular trim: ABS and ESP, six airbags, 17-inch alloy wheels, semi-automatic climate control, cruise control and leather upholstery.

The Plus will also be available on all engine versions of the Passat Highline: 1.8l TSI (160 PS) petrol, 2.0l TDI (110 PS), 2.0l TDI (140 PS), 2.0l TDI with (170 PS), with or without BlueMotion.

According to Volkswagen, the new trim can already be ordered from local VW dealerships. Those interested will however have to wait until January next year to get their hands on the car.
