The exterior features a bespoke bodykit with a front bumper which includes fog lights with cornering function whilst at the rear a bootlid spoiler (tailgate spoiler on the Estate). There are standard bi-xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights and LED taillights.
There is lowered sports suspension (by 15 mm) and rides on 18-inch ‘Kansas' alloy wheels shod with low-profile 235/40 tyres.
On the inside the Volkswagen Passat R-line is based on the ‘S’ version’s trim and includes Bluetooth, USB and iPod connectivity, DAB digital radio and a leather-trimmed multifunction steering wheel (with gearshift paddles on DSG models).
There is the choice of two diesel units, a 1.6-litre 105 PS TDI diesel engine with six-speed manual gearbox, or a 2.0-litre 140 PS TDI diesel engine with six-speed manual or DSG gearbox. There is a petrol turbocharged and supercharged 1.4-litre 160 PS TSI engine with either six-speed manual or seven-speed DSG gearboxes. All Passat R-Line models feature BlueMotion Technology modifications with Stop/Start and battery regeneration systems.
