The Passat Estate. Elegance. Poise. Performance
The Passat Estate is the embodiment of superior design and engineering. This is the perfect car for drivers who accept no compromises.
The streamlined design of the Passat Estate gives the car an elegant profile. The front has been given a strong, broad look with a striking chrome radiator grille. The large wheels and lowered bonnet meanwhile hint towards the car’s superior driving performance. The Passat Estate’s exquisite design has already been recognised by International Forum Design, who in 2015 awarded the car a prestigious iF award in the ‘Product’ category.
The lighting design has undergone a total overhaul in the Passat Estate. Apart from the attractively contoured look, the energy-saving LED headlights also use reflector technology to provide light-levels similar to daylight while lasting longer than ordinary headlights. Standard from the SE Business upwards. As an additional extra, you can add dynamic cornering lights. This advanced system turns the direction of the headlights as you turn the steering wheel to light up the direction you are travelling.
There is a wide selection of attractive wheels to go with your Passat Estate. Accentuate the elegant lines of your Passat Estate with attractive optional 16” Sepang alloy wheels. Or alternatively go for a sportier style with the 17” London wheels. But whether you prefer a sophisticated, sporty, or classic looks for your wheels, you’ll find one to suit your needs.
The Passat Estate’s cutting-edge exterior gives way to a luxurious interior. Your Passat Estate grants your passengers generous leg-space, premium materials woven into the seats, and thoughtful extra flourishes such as the ventilation strips which run the length of the dash panel.
Space is always at a premium. That’s why the Passat Estate’s luggage compartment comes with an impressive 650 litres of space, which can be extended even further to 1,780 litres by folding down the rear seats. With the optional extra equipment you get rail-mounted straps and a sliding luggage compartment floor for extra space and security for all your gear.
Somebody running out in front of your car as you drive through town is a worry for many drivers. The risk of this unexpected eventuality can be greatly reduced by your Passat Estate’s ingenious pedestrian detection system. As part of the optional drivers assistance pack, sensors at the front can detect when a pedestrian is stepping onto the road and give you a audio and visual warning. At the same time, the emergency brake is prepared to allow you to apply maximum pressure immediately. In cases where you can’t brake in time, your Passat Estate will try to stop in order to minimise the collision (at speeds of 18mph and under).
We hope you never need it, but the optional Emergency Assist can be vitally important in the event of a medical emergency. Using the Lane Assist function, your Passat Estate will recognise if the driver is not staying in their lane properly which indicates to the system that you are not in full control of the vehicle. The car will then make audible warnings other drivers and help bring the car to a gentle stop if the driver does not take back control on of the vehicle quickly enough to help prevent serious accidents.
When you opt for Car-Net with your Passat Estate you’ll receive six months of Apple Music, on us. Gain access to more than 45 million songs streamed directly from your iPhone, Android, or PC via the CarPlay media system. You’ll also be able to take advantage of Beats 1 Radio, a wealth of up-to-date music and culture news and a host of exclusive content, all without commercial interruption.
The optional Dynaudio Confidence sound system takes the audio in you Passat Estate to new levels of quality. Adapted to perfectly fit the car’s interior, the twelve loudspeakers include a central loudspeaker and have a total output of 700 watts for an unparalleled sound experience on your journeys. The 16-channel amplifier meanwhile means that the sound around each seat is customisable, so you and your passengers can find their ideal levels. Four different sound systems can be configured for quieter listening or for listening to purely spoken word recordings, perfect for podcasts.
Car-Net Security & Service
"Security & Service" features functions that will make your journey even safer. The Car-Net Service package offers you mobile access to important vehicle functions and combines security with transparency for even more comfort. Whether for Service Scheduling, Automatic Accident Notification, Breakdown Call or the Online Anti-Theft Alarm, you can call up support in every situation and they will provide you with all the key information you need regarding your mobility.
The optional head-up display places all key information within easy eyeshot. Data including speed, driver assistance messages, navigation information, and more is projected onto a high-quality optical surface right in front of the windscreen. Now all you need to do is take a quick glance and you’ll see all the information you need, no need to take your eyes off the road to check the dashboard. Plus, even in strong sunlight the information remains easily readable.
The Passat Alltrack
Off Road mode
The dynamic Passat Alltrack comes with an additional profile – Off-Road Mode. This allows you own country roads with ease. One of the main advantages of this mode lies in the Hill Ascent and Descent Assist feature. This regulates your speed when the gradient exceeds 10%.
Intuitive 4MOTION technology makes off-road driving far less daunting. This four-wheel drive feature greatly increases stability and safety when driving in icy or wet conditions. It works by making the wheels interact with each other, making your Passat Alltrack adept at dealing with sudden loss of traction. Plus, because 4MOTION distributes power to all wheels when required, driving on uneven terrain is far less hairy.
Dynamic Chassis Control
The Dynamic Chassis Control on the Passat Alltrack allows you to change the running gear to suit the terrain and you preferences. Choose from three distance profiles, sporty, comfortable, or normal, all at the push of a button. DCC reacts instinctively to your driving by taking account of you braking, steering and acceleration to provide a sharp and responsive driving experience.
