Besides the upcoming Arteon, Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) is also introducing the R-Line edition of the facelifted Volkswagen Passat launched earlier this year.
Expect the R-Line trim to come with more dark bits surrounding the exterior, 19-inch alloys, R-Line sports seats and possible digital gizmo add ons. The R-Line will be based on the sole Elegance trim with 2.0-litre turbocharged TSI engine producing 190 PS and 320 Nm of torque, mated to a 7-speed wet clutch DSG dual-clutch transmission.
The Passat R-Line will be launched online or physically, depending on the CMCO situation. Prices and launch date have yet to be confirmed, but VPCM is looking to launch the model in the later part of 2020.
