Volkswagen has announced a new Passat Highline model, which gets extra kit and costs from £20,970

Volkswagen has added a new Highline trim level to the Passat line-up, replacing the current SE models.

Highline specification builds on the equipment list of the SE, with sat-nav, front and rear parking sensors, climate control and 17-inch alloys. It adds up to £1,680 of extras over the SE, but the Highline costs just £500 more.

This means Highline models cost from £20,970 for the 1.4 TSI saloon and rise to £26,045 for the 2.0-litre TDI Estate with the DSG gearbox.

The addition of front and rear parking sensors as standard means that buyers can now opt for Volkswagen’s auto-parking feature for just £195 - without parking sensors it’s a £625 option.

SE models will continue to be sold alongside the Highline but only until stock runs out. Highline cars can be ordered now, with a few cars ready for delivery straight away.
