Having received the prestigious Car of the Year award for Europe in 2015, it’s no wonder that the Volkswagen Passat continuously strives to succeed with all upgrades and style tweaks purposefully designed to enhance the Passat experience further.
The Passat has a powerful presence and one that you simply can’t miss when out on the road. It’s like the CEO of the automotive world; strong-willed, reliable and determined to succeed. The newest version of this upper-class ride benefits from updated design features including a large chrome-barred grille which stretches out to the ultra-stylish and modern headlights which are either LED or halogen. The Passat’s physical appearance is domineering with alloy wheels completing the top-notch aesthetics.
Interior and technology
The Passat is an upmarket executive saloon and therefore has an interior that radiates class and sophistication. It’s nothing short of chic with high-end materials offering the final touches to a meticulously designed cabin that’s as spacious as it is practical. For optimum storage, the rear seats can be folded down to create an impressive 1,152 litres of boot space.
The cabin is perfectly complemented by standout technology which includes the advanced Discover Navigation Pro system. This combines satellite navigation functionality with DVD and radio to ensure all your infotainment is displayed in one place. The system is voice controlled allowing you to focus your attention on the road.
The Passat also has many tech-led safety features such as an Area View parking camera, park assist, adaptive cruise control, and side scan technology.
Engines and performance
The Volkswagen Passat is renowned for its powerful and high-performing diesel engines with the 1.6-litre 118bhp TDI available with six-speed manual transmissions – or a seven-speed automatic version. A manual edition of the 1.6-litre TDI is also available with BlueMotion technology for improved efficiency. Other options include the 2.0-litre 148bhp or 2.0-litre 187bhp with the latter offering slightly faster acceleration speeds than the former.
If you ultimately want a car that will reduce your carbon footprint but doesn’t compromise on style or performance, the GTE plug-in hybrid could be for you. Combining a conventional petrol engine with an electric motor, you can enjoy a more eco-friendly ride.
