New Passat Overview

Design and technology refresh for the business user’s favourite

Business users still favour conventional saloons like the Passat and it’s not hard to see why. Fuel efficiency, a generous specification and restrained, premium design count for a lot in this market. Now Volkswagen has updated the latest Passat with new technology and even more efficient drivetrains. 


This isn’t an all-new model, more a mid-life refresh of the eighth generation Passat.For the exterior, design changes include new front and rear bumpers, a mild redesign of the radiator grille and the relocation of the Passat logo to the centre rear. New LED headlights, LED daytime running lights, LED fog lights, and LED taillight clusters complete the refresh. Inside, you’ll find new trim finishes and fabrics, redesigned door trims, a new trim colour, new instruments and a new multifunction steering wheel as standard.



Two petrol engines and three diesels will be available from launch. The petrol drivetrains are based on a 2.0 TSI four-cylinder engine with power outputs of 190PS and 272PS, both mated to seven-speed DSG transmissions. The 272PS model is only available with four-wheel drive. Shortly after launch these will be joined by a new, highly efficient 150PS engine based on a 1.5-litre four-cylinder engine. This will be offered with either six-speed manual or a seven-speed DSG and will come as standard with Active Cylinder Shutdown to save fuel when cruising or decelerating.

Diesel models include the 120PS 118bhp turbocharged 1.6-litre four-cylinder and a turbocharged 2.0 TDI which again is available in a choice of 190 or 240PS. All drivetrains pass the stringent Euro 6d-TEMP emission standard and include particulate filters.

For the ultimate in fuel efficiency in town, the GTE models are Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV) with an increased electric-only zero-emissions range of 35 miles on the latest WLTP standards. This produces a combined 220PS.




Big news for the new model is the upgrade in interior technology; these include a new multi-function steering wheel with capacitive touch sensors on the button areas digital instruments and a wider high-definition infotainment system replacing analogue dials. Other features include seamless smartphone integration, Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Assist and parking sensors as standard. 

Passat Estate R-Line Edition


The new Passat features I.Q. Drive, a Level 2 assistance system that combines adaptive cruise control, lane assist and other safety features to allow the Passat to control acceleration, braking and steering functions at speeds between zero and 130mph. The system can also recognise roundabouts, junctions and speed-limit changes, and adjust itself accordingly. Another standard feature, the Front Assist with Pedestrian Monitoring System will alert you to pedestrians in the road and brake automatically if the driver fails to react.

Verdict: around 85% of all Passat sales are business vehicles, but the new Passat also makes a brilliant family car for private customers. It’s refined, spacious, fuel-efficient, well-equipped and looks smart enough to grace the forecourt of a five-star hotel.
