In case you weren't aware, Volkswagen offers an independent trim level
dubbed 'R-Line,' which is not to be confused with the automaker's line of thoroughbred 'R' models. And it's the European version of the facelifted VW Passat
that is the latest model series to adopt the R-Line trim (the Polo was the previous recipient
), which on the sedan and Estate sits somewhere between the mid-level 'Comfortline' and the top-of-the-line 'Highline' versions.
