Volkswagen of America announced today that it will offer a new, value-oriented edition of the Passat starting in mid-2013: the Passat Wolfsburg Edition. Sliding in between the new base S and the mid-level SE trims, the Volkswagen Passat Wolfsburg Edition offers a number of additional convenience features for a competitive price.

Building on the features of the S model with a six-speed automatic transmission— which already includes Bluetooth technology, multi-function steering wheel with audio and phone controls, automatic headlights, power exterior mirrors and driver’s seat lumbar support— the Passat Wolfsburg Edition adds distinctive 16-inch alloy wheels, perforated V-Tex leatherette seating surfaces, a power driver’s seat, heated front seats, satellite radio, and a Media Device-Interface (MDI) with an iPod cable.

The 2013 Passat Wolfsburg Edition is priced at $23,495, and will go on sale in late Spring.
