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.
