Passat Performance Concept varies from the regular Passat in a number of ways. Passat Performance possesses 19” alloy Luxor wheels, Bi-xenon headlights and Advanced Front Lighting System along with LED tail lights. Interiors are done up in carbon which are predominantly seen on the dashboard while matching carbon inserts are seen on the vehicle’s two toned leather seating and black headliners.
