The fifth and sixth Volkswagen generations had already left class boundaries behind and a path to the next higher with their high-end The seventh generation VW Passat continues this trend. A new styling configuration was created; its styling follows that of the which was restyled mid-year. It guides the Volkswagen Passat’s design into the future. leaving the mid-class in terms of the Passat approaches the top segments more powerfully with its comfort, convenience, quality and properties as well as in its assistance In fact, the Volkswagen Passat available in Trendline, Comfortline and equipment levels — now more value thanks to its features. For example, standard on all turbodiesel models of the base version now includes the energy-saving system and battery regeneration.

Up to 18 percent improved economy: As is usual for a Volkswagen, the new also sets standards in All ten engines (77 kW / 105 PS through 220 kW / 300 PS) are more efficient — up to 18 percent The smallest and yet torque-strong turbodiesel TDI with 105 PS and 250 Nm) now consumes just 4.2 km; that is equivalent to 109 g/km Meanwhile, downsizing and technologies as the Stop/Start system contribute to fuel efficiency in the petrol-powered Pioneering here is the 1.4 TSI (90 kW / 122 PS); in the Technology version, it only 5.8 l/100 km. The equivalent CO2 value is 138

New safety features: Volkswagen is genuine progress in the area of The previous model already an impressive five stars in crash testing. The new model safety to a new level with such as an automatic City braking function and, on models and above, a standard detection function. As a component of the automatic ACC adaptive cruise system, in worst case the emergency braking function independently at speeds below 30 So, it can help prevent frontal The fatigue detection system, Volkswagen is introducing for the first in this class, is continually it detects reduced driver and warns the driver with an signal; a visual message appears in the instrument cluster that the driver should a break from driving.

Another new feature on the Volkswagen the continually active masked beam headlights known as Light Assist; this is the system as the one first introduced on the new . Dynamic Light Assist an option offered in conjunction bi-xenon headlights — continual use of the main beam while driving. Via a camera, the detects oncoming traffic and driving ahead and automatically only those lighting relevant to glare. The results: illumination of the carriageway in nearly all The VW Passat is the first car in its class to this system. For vehicles conventional halogen headlights, a version of automatic main control is available: Light A camera is also used e.g. to detect oncoming But the system switches over between main beam and beam. As soon as there is no oncoming traffic, the main is reactivated.

The XDS electronic transverse lock — first on the Golf GTI — improves in bends. Along with Assist (lane keeping which was also available in the model, there will now be a Side Assist function, uses flashing LEDs in the mirrors to call the driver’s to vehicles located laterally to the or next to the Volkswagen Passat or a approaching quickly from the A new, direct measuring pressure monitoring system signals potential loss of pressure — individually for wheel. The pressures of all tyres may be displayed in the instrument cluster.

convenience systems: Other new systems are essentially convenience and they significantly simplify driving. They include Open: If the new VW Passat saloon is with Keyless Access locking and engine starting a specific foot motion the vehicle is sufficient to cause the lid to open.

end: After the Phaeton, in the summer of 2010, Volkswagen is the second model, the new Volkswagen whose front section is by a grille with four the height of the grille is approximately in with the headlights. While a narrow radiator grille two crossmembers marks the styling of beneath the Passat and Phaeton, as as the vans, Head of Design for the Group Walter de Silva and of Design for the Volkswagen Brand Bischoff deliberately chose distinguishing feature on the radiator to highlight the status of higher vehicles.

The entirely new front-end gives the Volkswagen Passat now 1,820 mm wide and 4,769 mm 4,771 mm) long — an more dominant look. the car has not grown in width, it has a greater and more visual dynamism. The of the two body versions also constant (saloon: 1,474 mm; 1,519 mm).

The dominant expression of the VW Passat is by its new dual-reflector headlights with bi-xenon light source and its LED running lights. Each running light consists of 15 Beneath the lines formed by the and grille is the body-coloured bumper The next level down another air intake framed by fins — as stylised similar to the wing tips of aircraft. The very low profile fog are integrated here. On the Highline line, another chrome strip at the centre of the air intake the fins. At the lowest level, is the front spoiler. As on motorsport it is designed as a so-called splitter. the Comfortline equipment level, a trim strip is also here.

Side profile: The end blends into the side over the side contour of the bonnet, in the style of the Phaeton, and the distinctive wing panel Noticeable here are the significantly lower and (new) upper lines. These two lines now the height of the Passat and give it a profile and a more powerful In one clean stroke, the upper line joins the highest of the headlights with the window up to the C-pillar.

The top engine has six all of the other petrol engines are four-cylinder engines. Also is the 110 kW / 150 PS engine (1.4 EcoFuel) is configured for natural gas. derivative of the 1.4 TSI is the MultiFuel engine 118 kW / 160 PS designed for use with up to 85 percent fuel.

Four turbodiesel engines are offered with three outputs; the four-cylinder engines 77 kW / 105 PS (1.6 TDI), 103 kW / 140 PS (2.0 TDI and 2.0 as well as 125 kW / 170 PS (2.0 TDI). the exception of the 105 PS TDI, any of the engines of the new VW may be combined with a dual-clutch (DSG); with the 3.6 V6, this gearbox is standard.

Petrol three four-cylinder TSIs and one V6: consumption values are impressive. the pace among the petrol is the Volkswagen Passat 1.4 TSI with BlueMotion Technology. It outputs 90 kW / 122 PS and 5.8 l/100 km (equivalent to 138 g/km

While the groundbreaking previous exhibited a nearly identical low consumption figure, fuel improvements in the more powerful are even more dramatic. the Passat 1.8 TSI with 118 PS: Here the team reduced the engine’s fuel consumption from 7.4 to 6.9 km; this resulted in a CO2 value of 160 No less significant is the reduced consumption of the powerful TSI, now 211 PS of 200 PS; it has a combined fuel consumption of 7.2 which is 0.6 litre less on the previous model. Accordingly, CO2 were reduced from 183 to 169 The combined fuel consumption of the top — the Volkswagen Passat V6 300 PS and all-wheel drive — fell to 9.2 l/100 km (previously 9.8 The new CO2 emissions value is 215 g/km.

gas — the EcoFuel engine: One of the emitting models of the medium is the VW Passat EcoFuel; in the new version, a fuel consumption value of 6.6 m3 gas per 100 km was measured; this has equivalent CO2 of just 117 g/km, and fuel was reduced by 0.4 m3. Thanks to twincharging by and supercharger (twincharger), the Passat is one of the top-performing natural gas vehicles in the

Ethanol — the MultiFuel Specially developed for use in Sweden and and based on the twincharged 1.4 TSI, is the 118 kW / 160 PS Twincharger. This engine in the can be powered by petrol fuel up to 85 percent ethanol content.

Diesel — four TDI The most fuel-efficient version of the new Passat is the 1.6 TDI BlueMotion with 105 PS. In the version, this engine delivered impressively low fuel values. Measures introduced to aerodynamics, further internal refinements and technologies such as the system and battery regeneration reduced fuel consumption to 4.2 km in the new Passat BlueMotion (saloon); is equivalent to a CO2 value of 109 g/km. By on the previous model, the figures 4.4 litres and 114 g/km. Fuel was also reduced in the 140 PS VW Passat 2.0 TDI Technology; 4.5 litres (119 CO2) nearly matches the of the 105 PS BlueMotion model of the previous VW generation.

Extreme progress was on the Volkswagen Passat 2.0 BlueTDI and the 2.0 TDI with 170 PS. For the particularly low-emitting 2.0 BlueTDI (Euro 6 emissions with SCR catalytic converter and 140 PS 143 PS), fuel consumption was by 0.6 l/100 km to just 4.6 litres g/km CO2). The combined consumption of the 170 PS Passat 2.0 TDI is 4.7 l/100 km g/km) — 0.9 litre than on the previous model. for the Volkswagen Passat Estate and this applies to all engine — are at about the same — and superior to the competition with just minimal of +/- 0.1 litre.
