2012 Volkswagen New Passat BlueMotion Technology

The Volkswagen Passat impresses at first glance with a sophisticated design that exudes dynamism and self-assurance. From the striking front to the elegant rear: perfectly coordinated details produce a design full of esprit. Stylish, sleek and modern, the VW Passat Estate boasts an unmistakable Volkswagen design. The horizontal lines of the radiator grille are accentuated by elegant chrome louvres and lend the striking front an air of self-assured elegance. The powerful contour of the C pillar creates a dynamic transition to the rear. The first four-door luxury coupé from Volkswagen sets new trends in the area of design. Pure sports car dynamics and uncompromising saloon-style comfort are the characteristic features of the new Passat CC. And the sporty styling is continued at the same high level inside the car: the spacious interior is impressive for its sophisticated materials and the optional panoramic tilting sunroof with its view of the heavens.

Fresh styling means the VW New Passat Saloon now sports the distinctive Volkswagen 'family face' with a pair of swept-back headlights framing a distinctive radiator grille with chrome louvres. Black air intakes with chrome surrounds are added to body-coloured bumpers and door mirrors to create a smart finish to your Passat Saloon. At the rear you'll notice the revised LED tail-lights and bumper, while a new set of alloy wheels and heat insulating green tinted glass complete the Passat Saloon's dynamic good looks.

Volkswagen's BlueMotion Technology badge identifies the most economical models in the Passat Saloon range, with a host of refinements that are kinder to the environment and also save you money at the pumps. The Passat Saloon with BlueMotion Technology is the most efficient Passat we've ever produced with the 1.6-litre TDI 105PS diesel model achieving an impressive 65.7 mpg (combined figure) and emitting just 114g/km of CO2.

The BlueMotion Technology models are a result of their work, designed with a range of energy-saving, emission-cutting technologies to work in synergy with our advanced engines and gearboxes. The measures include visual gear change recommendations for optimum fuel consumption, brake energy recuperation and improved aerodynamics, as well as low rolling resistance tyres and a Stop/Start function. This cleverly switches off the engine when your Passat Saloon is stationary and in neutral and start it again as you depress the clutch.

Whether you prefer it as a saloon or as an estate, one thing is for sure: the Passat R36 with its 220 kW (300 hp) is the most powerful Passat ever. And superlatives are also entirely appropriate to describe its looks. The "Biscay Blue, pearl effect" paint finish, the motorsport-style bumpers typical of the R series and the body-colour wheel arch and sill extensions are genuine highlights. (Fuel consumption: 10.5 l/100 km; CO2 emissions: 249 g/km)

If someone tries to break into your locked Passat Saloon the alarm will sound and the hazard lights flash continuously. The alarm's interior protection system detects movement inside the car, but can be turned off if you have to leave pets inside for a short time. The Passat Saloon is fitted with our latest Electronic Stabilisation Programme (ESP), which detects critical situations at an early stage, and takes action to help bring your car safely back under control. ESP links to the Passat Saloon's electronic systems such as the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Engine Braking Control (EBC). It has sensors on the wheels and steering wheel, plus a yaw movement sensor. The ESP plays a further role, utilising electronic differential lock and traction control to help correct oversteer, understeer and loss of stability of the vehicle. The result is optimum traction when rounding bends.
