Volkswagen announced today that it will replace the Wolfsburg and SE Passat trim levels with the Passat Limited Edition.
The new trim level will cost $24,815 including delivery and includes keyless entry, a push-button ignition system, leatherette-upolstered seats that are heated in the front, a touch screen with a rear-view camera and 17-inch alloy wheels. Volkswagen said the trim level adds $2,755 in standard content over the S model, but only comes with a $1,555 price increase over that trim level when it is equipped with an automatic transmission.
Of course, that means the car comes with a six-speed automatic mated to Volkswagen’s recently-introduced 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 170 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque.
