New VW Passat: prices, specifications and CO2 emissions

8 VW Passat facelift

Volkswagen has announced pricing and CO2 emissions for the new Passat.

It’s a facelift of the existing car, with a focus on new technology and the re-introduction of a plug-in hybrid engine.

Prices start at £25,370 for the entry-level 1.5 TSI SE.

Saloon and estate bodystyles are offered with a range of petrol and diesel engines.

There's a heavily revised 150PS 2.0-litre TDI diesel unit, a 1.5-litre TSI petrol with 150PS and a plug-in hybrid.

A new “semi-autonomous” driver assistance technology is offered, called Travel Assist. It combines adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, blind spot monitor and traffic sign recognition to provide a higher level of assistance than is available in the current model.

Another new feature in the Passat is Emergency Steering Assist, which increases safety when performing evasive manoeuvres by means of braking interventions.

The LED Matrix lights that made their debut on the new Touareg will also be available.

While the Passat retains similar styling to the existing version, the most noticeable change inside is the fitment of an all-new infotainment system.

Volkswagen calls it MIB3 and it promised greater interaction with smartphones and a permanent online connection.

The new system provides online music streaming, live traffic updates and a voice control system.

It is closely integrated with the new Digital Cockpit. The digital instruments have been enhanced with improved graphics and greater customisation.
