2019 Volkswagen Passat Trim Level Comparison Glendale, CA

Sometimes a car brand will give you five or more trim level options to choose from, which can be overwhelming. Indeed, the last Volkswagen Passat offered seven trim level options, so that everyone could find something. This year, Volkswagen decided to try something different, by only creating two trim levels for the 2019 Volkswagen Passat. Their reasoning was that customers can still choose between a cheaper, basic trim level or a more expensive, sportier trim level, without getting confused by all of the options.

The two trim level options that are available on the 2019 Volkswagen Passat are the Wolfsburg and the SE R-line. The Wolfsburg is the lowest trim level offered and the SE R-line has a sportier exterior and a few more technology features to give it more value. Keep reading below for the 2019 Volkswagen Passat trim level comparison.
