Spy Shots: Volkswagen Passat Wagon Gets Refreshed, Too

News I By John Beltz Snyder I June 10, 2010

Our spy photographer has been catching updated Volkswagens out in the open lately, and the Passat Wagon was the latest to find itself in his crosshairs, here testing in Europe.

It will receive many of the same changes as the sedan version, including a facelift to go along with the rest of the lineup. The grille will look more like that of the Golf and the Touareg. We should see LED running lights in front and back of the car.

Comfort-wise, the Passat will take cues from the CC, with heated and cooled seats and voice-activated navigation. Better materials and chrome accents should round out the new interior. Suspension settings will be made more comfortable and sportier.
