Moving up, the Passat V6 FSI Highline gets 18x8-inch alloy wheels and sport suspension. Inside, 12-way electric front seats with three-position memory for the driver's seat figures among the V6 FSI Highline's standard features, along with automatic kerb function for the passenger's side mirror and a Media Device Interface.

The range-topping Passat R36 gets a dark tinted rear window and rear side windows and the Media Device Interface.

Safety features available across the 2010 Passat range include Adaptive Cruise Control with Front Assist for braking distance reduction. Other safety systems include Park Assist, Adaptive Chassis Control and Lane Assist.
