The New Passat

Design & Equipment

Designed to make your busy life easier.


A self-assured exterior showcases exciting colours across stylish contours, an updated front grille and LED headlights. Raising the bar when it comes to style, the R-Line accents include specially designed front and rear bumpers, chrome body trim highlights, side skirts and a ‘Gloss Black’ rear diffuser. The Passat GTE is recognisable by elegant light signatures inside and out and blue brake calipers; while the Alltrack is set apart by rugged underbody protection, wheel arch protection and increased ground clearance.


The interior is spacious with ambient lighting adjustable to your personal preference – a signature of the Passat. Available as a Saloon or an Estate, the latter offers a vast 650 litre luggage compartment volume and both are configurable to transport larger items. The R-Line interior features an intuitive multifunction steering wheel, finished in Titan Black ‘Nappa’ leather, plus pedals and door sill protectors in stainless steel effect.


​Featuring a seamless smartphone integration, Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Assist and parking sensors as standard. The Alltrack features 4MOTION all-wheel drive improves traction in wet and slippery conditions, handling the most challenging surfaces with ease, while intelligent driver assistance systems and a seven-speed automatic DSG gearbox deliver a dynamic driving experience with outstanding handling on most surfaces.


It’s the first Volkswagen to offer the new IQ.Drive system 'Travel Assist', providing partially assisted driving with control of steering, braking and acceleration up to 130mph (where the law permits) aided by a touch-sensitive steering wheel, another Volkswagen first. The Proactive Occupant Protection System detects a critical situation, such as an imminent collision and a high-resolution Active Info Display provides all the key information you need while you're driving.


With its powerful 1.4 litre TSI petrol engine, the new Passat GTE with plug-in hybrid technology puts you on the road to tomorrow. Powered by a turbocharged engine and electric motor, delivering a combined output of 218 PS, it is capable of traveling up to 34 miles on one battery charge. Charging time is around four hours, while new driving modes allow you to save battery use for zero-emission zones. For drivers commuting into London, the new GTE is exempt from the Congestion Charge.

The Passat is the confident, sophisticated, progressive driver's car. This new generation of Passat is packed with technologies, new levels of comfort, luxury and performance.
