The Volkswagen Passat Wolfsburg Edition has come and gone throughout the years, but it's always been a value-oriented package that adds popular features to a lower-trim model. For 2013 VW is bringing the model back to showrooms to sit between the base S and the mid-level SE trims.
The Wolfsburg Edition features all the standard equipment on the S model including a six-speed automatic transmission, Bluetooth, multi-function steering wheel, automatic headlights, power mirrors, and driver's seat lumbar support. It also adds unique 16-inch alloy wheels, Volkswagen's perforated synthetic V-Tex leatherette seats, a power driver's seat, heated front seats, satellite radio, and VW's Media Device-Interface (MDI) with an iPod cable.
Starting from $23,495, the Passat Wolfsburg Edition adds $500 to the price of the base S trim, but costs $500 less than the SE package.
Volkswagen dealers will begin taking orders for the 2013 Passat Wolfsburg Edition later this spring.
