2019 Volkswagen Passat R-line - Drive, Interior and Exterior. Subscribe.

The exclusive special series of the Passat Estate R-Line Edition is limited to 2,000 units. On board the special series are the top engines with 176 kW / 240 PS (TDI) or 200 kW / 272 PS (TSI) and thus also the 4MOTION four-wheel drive and a 7-gear dual clutch gearbox (DSG). The high-tech all-rounder is painted in the new colour Moonstone Grey. Numerous black features are matched to this as a contrast. The roof is painted by hand in a complex process and set off in high-gloss black. The roof-edge spoiler, roof rail, and wing mirror caps are also black. The side window frames, rear diffuser, headlight rims and all trim also come in high-gloss black. The dark LED tail lights and high-gloss black 19-inch alloy wheels (Pretoria) have also been consistently integrated into this colour scheme. Black also dominates the interior: driver and passengers sit on R-Line sports seats, with seat centre panels covered with fine-quality Nappa leather, and the side bolsters with carbon leather. Pedals are finished in stainless steel (brushed), and the side sills (with R-Line logo) also come in stainless steel. Ambient lighting brings a wide range of colours into play. The limited edition also features almost all the new technologies on board as standard, including the Digital Cockpit and the 9.2-inch Discover Pro navigation system with R-Line start screen. Another highlight is the standard Travel Assist, IQ.LIGHT LED Matrix headlight system and Rear View reversing camera system. The latest version of the DCC adaptive damper control system also forms part of the standard equipment. The sporty positioning of the model designed by Volkswagen R is underlined by the ESC off function, which is used to disable the electronic stabilisation programme when driving on closed roads.
