iF award

Acclaimed design

The Passat Variant is the recipient of one of the design world's most prodigious accolades - the iF award. Presented by iF International Forum Design GmbH, it is regarded worldwide as a quality seal for outstanding design.


Harmonious and dynamic

The Passat Variant exudes elegance and dynamism, lending it an unmistakable poise. The front air intakes are placed toward the outside for a broad and powerful look. Agility and a graceful assurance are evident in the large wheels, the striking side line and the pronounced shoulder.

R-Line bodykit

Distinctively sporty

The R-line exterior package features specially designed R-Line bumpers and sill extensions to give the Passat Variant a sportier look, further enhanced by the specific R-Line radiator grille. Stylish 19-inch 'Verona' alloy wheels complete the visual makeover.

LED illumination

Light up the road

LED headlights blend seamlessly into the front chrome radiator grille, providing an impressive light signature. The sporty look is enhanced by the innovative night-time design of the LED rear lights that change when braking, for a look unique to the Passat Variant.

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 Variant cool, even on the hottest days.


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

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 Variant, evident in the ultra-fine grain finish that adorns the interior surfaces.

ergoComfort seat

Sit more comfortably

The Passat Variant 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.


Impressive inside

The interior of the Passat Variant seamlessly blends luxury, comfort and functionality. The high-quality materials and the design clarity will excite you just as much as the generous legroom, which is especially striking in the rear. 

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.

Luggage space

Room for everything

The Passat Variant offers an impressively large luggage space with flexible load and securing options. The standard height-adjustable loading floor can be easily tailored to your needs with just a single hand, while the electrically operated boot lid works quietly and effortlessly.

See the Passat Variant for yourself


With the sophisticated infotainment systems on the Passat Variant, 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.


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 favorite music, use your phone or check the latest news and journey information. It's that simple to stay connected on every trip.

DYNAUDIO confidence

Surrounded by high-end sound

Experience a consummate listening experience with DYNAUDIO, the premier Danish manufacturer of high-end speakers. The DYNAUDIO Confidence sound system is precisely tuned to the interior, with 11 speakers including a centre speaker and subwoofer delivering an extraordinary listening experience. It produces its highly distinctive sound thanks to its 700W of power and the 16-channel digital amplifier.

Assistance systems

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

Area View

Keeps everything in view

Area View provides you with an outstanding overview around the Passat Variant. Cameras in the front, rear and two sides let you see everything around the car in one glance. Views can be selected individually or in combination for a 'bird's eye' perspective.

Proactive occupant protection system

Designed for enhanced protection

The system reacts just before an impending collision by priming the seat belts and brakes, as well as automatically closing the side windows and sunroof.

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.


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

Turbocharged TSI engine

Compelling performance

The Passat Variant has the same engine as the Passat, a highly efficient turbocharged TSI engine which delivers smooth, effortless performance. They deliver maximum torque even at low engine speeds, and an even transmission of power for a balanced, smoother ride.

Driving profile selection

Your 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

Dynamic Chassis Control

As sporty as you like

With five driving profiles to choose from, Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) adaptively varies the suspension firmness to suit your preferences. Taking input signals from wheel sensors and front and rear acceleration sensors, the system refines the damping force according to the road and driving conditions, allowing you to enjoy particularly direct handling.
