VOLKSWAGEN Australia has secured a further allocation of 250 Passat Alltrack Wolfsburg Edition wagons after selling out the initial batch of 250 early this year.

This time around, VW has included a number of new additions as part of a model-year 2018 update, but it has retained the same $54,990 plus on-road costs pricetag.

New features for the special-edition high-rider include a new-gen 9.2-inch Discover Pro infotainment touchscreen with gesture control, two USB ports, front and rear low-speed (1.5-10km/h) autonomous emergency braking and electric front seats with memory and easy entry/exit functions.

This is on top of already standard fare from the Passat Alltrack 140TDI on which the Wolfsburg is based, that retails for $50,790, plus on-roads.

Features include black Nappa leather, LED headlights, daytime running lights and tail-lights, automatic tailgate, adaptive chassis control, ambient interior lighting, active info display, gear shift paddles, tinted rear windows, brushed aluminium dash inserts, piano black centre console, Wolfsburg badging and 19-inch Albertville alloy wheels.

Other features include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, satellite navigation, tri-zone climate control, adaptive cruise control, autonomous emergency braking, rear-cross traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, lane keep assist, nine airbags, a reversing camera, an auto dimming rear-view mirror and heated front seats.

Options for the Wolfsburg include a $2000 panoramic sunroof and Atlantic Blue or Manganese Grey metallic paint that adds $700 to the price. The other paint choice, Pure White, is a no-cost hue.

Powering the Wolfsburg Edition is the 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine delivering 140kW/400Nm matched with a six-speed wet-clutch dual-clutch DSG transmission that drives all four wheels via VW’s 4Motion all-wheel-drive system.

VW has previously released Wolfsburg Editions of the now defunct Scirocco R performance hatch and the Golf R hatch and wagon.

Even though it is based on the Passat mid-sizer, the Alltrack sits in the sub-$70,000 large-SUV segment for the purpose of Australia’s official VFACTS sales data.

It sits towards the back of the segment with 465 sales to the end of July this year – an 18.6 per cent increase over the same period last year. The Alltrack was launched in February last year.

Sales of the Passat donor car in sedan and wagon guise have dropped by 20 per cent year to date, but its 1541-unit haul is ahead of other players in the sub-$60,000 mid-size segment such as the Subaru Liberty (1344), the related Skoda Octavia (1002) and the Hyundai Sonata (641).
