At the world premiere, Volkswagen presents the first photos and facts of the completely newly developed Passat. The focus is on powerful aerodynamic design, new high-efficiency drives, high quality and a host of new technologies. In just a few days, the vehicle will be shown to the public for the first time at the IAA Mobility in Munich (5 to 9 September 2023). The new Passat will be launched as a versatile Estate in the first quarter of 2024.
Clean and powerful – the design is clearly Passat, clearly Volkswagen, yet new from every perspective. Drive options available in the UK for the new model include a mild hybrid eTSI petrol engine that is new for the Passat, two new plug-in eHybrids and a TSI turbo petrol version. Power outputs range from 150 to 272 PS, and all drives are combined with a direct shift gearbox (DSG) as standard. The quiet and spacious Passat Estate offers a high level of travel comfort and will be available with new adaptive chassis control (DCC Pro3), which is optional on the Life and Elegance trims and standard on R-Line, and new ergoActive seats3 (with pneumatic pressure point massage). The intuitive features of the digitalised cockpit landscape are a completely new development. The new Passat can also optionally park4 independently and cover long distances in assisted driving mode4.
