The new features join an already generous standard feature list that includes six airbags, dual-zone climate control air conditioning, leather wrapped steering wheel, park brake lever and gear knob, plus 17-inch alloy wheels.
The Passat CC GT model adds leather upholstery, front and rear parking sensors, cruise control Adaptive Chassis Control (ACC), heat insulated glass on the rear windows and 18-inch alloys.
Engine and transmission options remain unchanged.
Unfortunately, Australia will miss out on the five-seat variant with Volkswagen Australia General Manager of Press and Public Relations, Karl Gehling telling CarAdvice "Volkswagen has no plans to offer it in Australia".
For now, we'll just have to be content with the stunning four-seat version.
