Available as a saloon or estate, the new Volkswagen Passat has to be experienced to be truly appreciated. This model's combination of practical interior space, fuel efficiency and technologically-enhanced ride comfort means that it is most definitely a car designed for the modern era.
The Passat's rounded front end and angular headlamps make an immediate visual impression. Fog lights provide excellent visibility in poor conditions, while alloy wheels are fitted as standard, enhancing both the car's looks and handling.
Occupying the 'family' section of the Volkswagen range, the Passat provides numerous interior features not offered by many of its competitors. The level of technological innovation is impressive, with cruise control, a voice-activated RNS 510 sat nav system, rain-sensitive windscreen wipers and Bluetooth® connectivity, to name just a few. Driver assists include Auto Hold for easy hill starts, Lane Assist to alert you if you stray from your lane, and an optional rear-view parking camera to help you squeeze into tight spaces.
True to its Volkswagen legacy, the new Passat offers a diverse petrol and diesel engine range with an exceptional amount of both power and economy. The 1.6-litre TDi unit with BlueMotion Technology offers up to 68.9mpg combined while still managing to output 104bhp, whereas the 2.0-litre TSi offers pure power at 207bhp.
Whichever engine you choose, however, you are guaranteed a high level of safety. With Electronic Stability Control (ESC), six airbags and ABS as standard, you and your passengers will be well protected in the event of a crash.And thanks to the built-in interior protection system – which sets off the alarm if interior movement is detected – thieves will think twice before attempting to gain entry to the vehicle.
