The all new Volkswagen Passat
The Volkswagen Passat is set to arrive at Pulman Volkswagen in January 2015 and we can’t wait. It’s the eighth of its generation and is available to order now.
The New Passat is built of the revolutionary MQB platform meaning a range of new technologies will be available. New technologies include; Car net guide and inform – an in car connection to the internet via a smartphone Wi-Fi spot which provides the driver with online traffic data, news and weather which can be accessed through the colour touchscreen infotainment system. Another new feature the Passat boosts is traffic jam assist which brakes, accelerates and steers automatically easing the strain for the driver in stop and go traffic. Other new features include predictive pedestrian protection, emergency assist and trailer assist.
In addition the new Passat benefits from a range of new efficient engines meaning a reduction of up to 14 percent in C02 emissions. The Passat comes in a range of diesel only engines with the entry engine being 1.6 litre unit producing 120ps and is available in a 6-speed manual gearbox and 7 speed DSG transmissions. A brand new Bi-Turbo engine coupled with a 7-speed DSG gearbox and 4MOTION is also available, producing 240PS and with a 0-62mph acceleration speed of 6.1 seconds.
Despite exterior dimensions marginally smaller than those of the previous Passat, interior space is improved, with more leg and head room, as well as increased luggage space. The interior has been developed to match the sophisticated exterior through the use of high quality materials and a design that creates an air of spaciousness. The new Passat comes with high specification as standard with a dramatically styled R-Line topping the range.
