The Passat must be doing something right for Volkswagen to have sold 22 million models since 1973. In fact, the latest version won European Car of the Year 2015 thanks to its advanced technologies, sophisticated assistance systems, the very best safety kit, and the kind of build quality you come to expect from Volkswagen. The design and engineering of the new Passat has been stepped up a notch, with a longer wheelbase complimented by sharper lines and a redesigned interior. Stylish ergonomic seats deliver equal amounts of support and comfort, while a bigger boot space and versatile cabin boost the Passat’s practicality. Regardless of whether you will be using the Passat for business or pleasure, there are 6 models and 5 engines to choose from.
With the VW Passat, every driver aid imaginable is at your fingertips, such as Lane Assist, Park Assist, Emergency Assist, Traffic Jam Assist, Trailer Assist, and Auto Hold on steep hills.
VW’s BlueMotion Technology gives the Passat an economical edge thanks to automatic stop/start in queues or at traffic lights and brake energy recuperation, which raises the alternator voltage when slowing down and braking.
While the Passat can come with the brand new 2.0 TDI Bi-Turbo engine featuring 240PS, it also has a range of diesel drivetrains to choose from, which are incredibly quiet and responsive yet fun to drive.
In addition to ABS, ESC (Electronic Stabilisation Control) and abundant airbags, the Passat also has a Driver Alert System that monitors behind-the-wheel behaviour and gives advice on when to take a break.
