2016 VW Passat R-Line Features and Specs
Again, details on the full range of specs and features for the 2016 Passat are still limited. We will likely know more once we get closer to the 2016 Volkswagen Passat’s release date. We do know, however, that the R-Line will contain some exciting enhancements, including:
- unique rocker panels
- modified rear diffuser
- 19-inch anthracite Salvador aluminum-alloy wheels wrapped up in 235/40 ZR rated tires

Though the engine to be paired with the R-Line model has not been officially revealed, we would expect the Passat R-Line to come equipped with the 1.8-liter turbocharged TSI gasoline engine, which delivers 170 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque in the 2015 model.
