But there's still a long distance to go to reach VW's aim of making
it an E-class rival. At ads, Wolfsburg is emphasising comfort and
luxury features. This shows the direction, from average to luxury. Nonethe-
also the new one doesn't excel in sportiness. That the opposite can also apply for
it is now being proved by two German firms, KW Automotive
and Abt Sportsline.
VW specialist Abt [ Abt-Sportsline.de ]
already reveals a front spoiler that is going to be gettable soon.
A further item to make the Passat appearing like a 3-series competitor will be a wing for
the trunk lid. Also in preparation, a suspension kit to lower the ride height and to add more
visual sportiness. Abt's classic SP wheel will be obtainable for Wolfsburg's middle-class
car too - which doesn't come as a surprise, admittedly.
