Volkswagen’s 2017 Passat range is now complete in Australia, with the local arrival of the Passat R-Line grand tourer.

As previewed last month, the R-Line sits at the top of the Passat range locally, available with a single engine and transmission combination priced from $57,990 for the sedan and $59,990 for the wagon - plus on-road costs.

Powering the R-Line is the same 206kW/350Nm 2.0 litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine found in other Volkswagen Group models, such as the Skoda Superb.

The R-Line is only available in Australia with a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, matched with Volkswagen’s 4MOTION all-wheel-drive system.

Features include a flat-bottomed sports steering wheel with paddle shifters, leather R-Line seats, alloy pedals and a new Active Info Display.

Buyers can order a Passat R-Line in dealers from this month, and its arrival coincides with a wider-reaching update for the rest of the Volkswagen Passat range - including the Passat sedan, wagon and Passat Alltrack (pictured, above).

Other Passat models in the range also score the Active Info Display, along with dual-zone climate control with Air Care air-cleaning function, a luggage floor net, Front Assist with City Emergency Brake, electric front seats with massage function for the driver, power folding door mirrors and revised 18-inch alloy wheels (where fitted).

The smaller 17-inch alloys are also new, and changes have been made to the Passat’s Luxury and R-Line option packs.

The 2017 Volkswagen Passat is on sale now, with prices starting from $35,490 plus on-roads.
