Stylish practicality

The new Passat combines functionality with a sporty silhouette. Graceful and dynamic, its striking radiator grille and signature headlights create a confident and athletic look. And when you drive it, you'll experience first-hand the marvelous harmony of engineering and design.

LED lights

Charismatic highlights

The face of the Passat takes an evolutionary step forward, with striking trapezoidal LED headlights that offer improved visibility and consume minimal energy. Dynamic cornering lights help illuminate winding roads, lighting up corners to make your journeys safer.

Panoramic sunroof

Enjoy the views

Slide open the panoramic sunroof to get some fresh air in the cabin, or leave it closed and enjoy the extra light that streams in. A sliding sunshade keeps the interior of the Passat cool, even on the hottest days.

Hands-free boot

Makes life even more convenient

At 586L of boot capacity, the Passat has ample space to fit some pretty large items. With the Easy Open feature, you no longer need to set down heavy objects when approaching the boot and search for the keys at the bottom of your bag. Simply make a slight kicking action beneath the rear of the boot and the lid automatically opens. The keyless access sensor will always recognise you if you have the keys in your possession.

Interior

The new Passat's comfortable, high quality interior creates a pleasant feeling of space, and can be easily adapted to transport large items.

Design

Experience true comfort

Seamlessly blending luxury, comfort and functionality, the new Passat's interior is sure to impress both you and your passengers. The remarkable design creates a spacious, luxurious feel, highlighting its premium quality at first glance.

Ventilated seat

Keeps you cool

Ride comfortably in the ventilated front seats of the Passat Elegance, which provides airflow through the leather seats to ensure that you stay fresh and dry even on the warmest days.

ergoComfort seat

Sit more comfortably

The Passat Business comes with comfortable, back-friendly seats - thanks to the ergoComfort design. A vast array of adjustment options allow you to adopt an ergonomically supported seating position and take the strain off your back. A memory and massage function for the driver ensures you get the perfect comfort, every time.

Nappa leather upholstery & trim

Refined for the senses

The luxurious stylish 'Nappa' leather upholstery and trim attests to refined taste. High-quality materials are prevalent in the Passat, evident in the ultra-fine grain finish that adorns the interior surfaces.

Air Care Climatronic

Intelligent climate control

Keep the temperature just right with three independently controlled temperature zones for the driver, front passenger and rear passengers. An active biogenic filter keeps allergens away, and an automatic air recirculation mode improves air quality in the car.

Interior ambient lighting

From cool to cosy

See every journey in a new light, with interior ambient lighting to create your own lighting mood - giving the cabin a unique feel at night. From dimmed to brightly lit, it's easy to adjust the illuminated decorative trims to suit your personal preference.

Keyless entry

No more searching for the key

Simply carry your car key in your pocket and the KESSY keyless system will detect the key from approximately 1.5 metres away. Unlock the doors and rear lid as soon as you slide your hand into the handle of one of the front doors. Once you're inside, simply press the start button and drive away.

Automatic sunshade

Keeps the heat out

At the touch of a button, the rear window sunshade on the Passat Elegance automatically activates to keep things cool. The sunshade helps reduce the sun's glare and heat transfer inside the vehicle, helping to create a more comfortable interior environment.

Infotainment

With the Passat's sophisticated infotainment systems, every drive is filled with enjoyable experiences.

Active Info Display

Everything at your fingertips

The new high-resolution digital display provides all the key information you need while you're driving, with configurable instrument styles.

Discover Pro with gesture control

Put control in your hands

The Discover Pro navigation system offers innovative gesture control across a 9.2-inch touch screen. This allows you to change from one radio station to another or change the system settings in your car, such as the intensity of the interior lighting, with a single hand swipe.

App-Connect

Connect seamlessly

Simply connect your Apple or Android smartphone to the Composition Media system via USB to put selected apps at your fingertips, allowing you to listen to your favourite music, check the latest news and see journey information. And with wireless connectivity, you can do all that without needing to plug your phone in!

Voice control

Just say the word

The voice control system lets you choose your favourite music and plan your route while keeping your eyes on the road. Entering data using the 'one-shot destination' function is child's play - simply state the address of your destination or the name from a connected telephone.

Assistance systems

The Passat features intelligent safety systems to help you deal with critical situations well or even avoid them. 

Side Assist

Always on the lookout

When changing lanes the Passat has your back, literally. Radar sensors in the rear of the car detect other vehicles behind you, including in your blind spot, and will warn you via a warning light in the side mirror housing. The additional Rear Traffic Alert system also gives you an audible warning if it detects another vehicle as you reverse out of a parking space. In an emergency, the system will even brake the vehicle to help you avoid an accident.

6 airbags

All-around Protection

An advanced airbag system ensures that all occupants are well-protected during an impact. The Passat has 6 airbags, including side impact airbags for the front seats and curtain airbags that protect both front and rear passengers. The front passenger's airbag deactivation switch is also included should it be required.

Parking sensors & camera

Keeps an eye on your safety

The Parking Distance Warning System makes parking a lot safer with sensors in the front and rear that sound audible signals to warn you of an imminent collision. With the Rear View Camera, you can see what's behind you on the dashboard Infotainment screen, with overlay guidelines to help you easily judge your distance from obstacles.

Rest Assist Fatigue Detection System

Senses when you need a break

The system monitors driver behaviour closely - noting any erratic steering wheel movements and lane deviations, signs of fatigue or sleepiness - so it can judge the moment that you are starting to feel sleepy and need to stop. It will alert you with a visual display on the dashboard and a warning sound.

Multi-collision brake

Prevent follow-on collisions intelligently

The standard multi-collision brake can limit the damage with a rear-end collision. In many cases there is actually a second collision following the initial accident. The system can detect an accident and respond faster than the driver could, initiating braking to prevent further collisions. The driver can intervene and regain control of the car at any time.

Technology

With modern engine technology and advanced features, the Passat is made for sophisticated drivers who delight in the latest innovations.

Turbocharged TSI engine

Efficient and powerful

The TSI petrol engines are designed for high levels of power, with low fuel consumption, and are bound to excite you. They deliver maximum torque even at low engine speeds, and an even transmission of power for a balanced, smoother ride.

Driving profile selection

Drive your way

With the driving profile selection, you can decide how you want your Passat to drive at the touch of a button. Choose from:

ECO: Save fuel whilst driving

SPORT: Take on the challenges of a winding road

INDIVIDUAL: Combine individual adjustments and save preferred settings such as air-con and headlights

Start-stop System and Regenerative Braking

Put the brakes on costs

The start/stop system automatically switches off the engine when the vehicle is stationary, with the engine running only when it is really needed. Regenerative braking helps to recover energy that would otherwise be lost in driving in as efficient a way as possible. This reduces engine load and improves fuel economy, a great choice for cities.
