The launch of the locally-assembled Passat R-Line was held via live telecast on social media and has been priced at RM203,411.18 (on-the-road without insurance and sales tax).
The introduction of the Passat R-Line finally completes the current Volkswagen R-Line range for Malaysia.
With a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine, this executive sedan has been further decked out with special performance interior and exterior trims.
This includes new R-Line front and rear bumpers, side R-Line badge, chrome trims and 19-inch Verona alloy wheels.
Inside, the cabin features an R-Line trim consisting of Nappa carbon-style black leather seats, black roof headliner, steering wheel and aluminium sports pedals.
The Passat R-Line also comes with Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) and Driving Mode Selection with up to 15 driving style preferences.
For comfort and convenience, there is the personalised Digital Cockpit, wireless App-Connect Apple Car Play and 14-way powered front seats in Nappa carbon-style black leather with driver massage and memory functions.
“The New Passat R-Line will appeal to those who demand a certain level of aesthetics and driving satisfaction. If you appreciate the finer things in life and are a firm believer in expressing your own individuality, you’re going to want a ride that stands out from the sea of cars on the road. This is your car,” said VPCM managing director Erik Winter.
