Discover Nav Pro
The Discover Navigation Pro is a touch-screen navigation/DVD radio system with integrated voice control, Car-Net 'Guide and Inform Plus' 2 and Car-Net 'App-Connect'. It has eight amazing speakers that turn your car into a concert hall.
Car-Net 'Guide and Inform Plus'
Your Passat becomes a mobile network using your smartphone's wifi hotspot. So you can connect to the internet and access information such as traffic, fuel pricing, parking space availability, weather, news feeds and Google Earth.
Combines the functionality of Apple 'CarPlay', Google 'Android Auto' and 'MirrorLink' TM allowing mirroring of a smartphone display on the infotainment touch-screen via USB connection. So what you can see on your smartphone you now can see and access on the car touch screen.
Active Info Display
Rev counter, speedometer, odometer - the cutting edge Active Info Display provides all the info you need at a glance and can be customised to show only the things you like to see when travelling.
The Park Assist System works by using additional sensors mounted in the bumpers, together with parking sensors to help you park your car quickly and easily in the tightest of spots!
The Area View technology enables Passat drivers to see the entire area surrounding their vehicle. It offers a number of views, which you can select according to the specific traffic situation and the action you intend to take. So you can use it to have a look behind your car to make sure the dog has gone in or look round a blind corner in a dangerous driveway.Compare models & features
Pro-active driving assistance.
When you want to change lanes, Side Scan tells you about other vehicles that are too close or in your blind spot.Compare safety features
Adaptive Cruise control
ACC will adjust your speed to that of the vehicle in front, keep your specified distance and warn you if you are approaching too fast.
Post collision braking
The Automatic Post-Collision-Braking System starts a brake operation after an initial impact has happened, and brakes for as long as necessary to reduce the speed of the vehicle to help prevent or minimise further collisions.
Emergency city braking
Takes intelligent control of your driving speed by automatically braking if speed reduction is sensed ahead of you.
Warns you if it detects, in addition to vehicles, any pedestrians at the edge of the road via acoustic and optical signals as well as a gentle jolt of the brakes. It even performs an emergency stop should the distance become critical.
Traffic jam assist
Help take some of the stress out of driving in congested traffic by maintaining a constant distance from the vehicle in front, preventing you from having to continually stop and start in slow moving traffic.
More space, more comfort, more versatility.
Space & comfort
The ergonomically designed interior complements the sophisticated exterior, with a host of equipment and advanced features providing sublime levels of comfort and convenience. The spacious interior provides more head and legroom than ever before in a Passat model. There's plenty of room for family, friends and equipment, especially in the Passat Estate. So if it's the school run, weekend away or driving to work, driving is so easy and relaxed.
Storage & boot space
The Passat boot is versatile, flexible and more spacious than ever before. The variable boot floor allows you to drop the height of the floor to gain space. With the back seats folded down, the load volume increases to 1,152 litres. The optional keyless entry includes hands-free boot opening, which opens the boot remotely, ideal if your hands are full.
Volkswagen looks. Elegant detail.
The shape of success.
Engineering and design are raised to a new level in the latest generation Passat. Sharp styling includes a longer wheelbase, shorter body overhangs and a dynamic silhouette, accented by headlights and rear lights, creating an imposing road presence.View Passat models
Lightweight, stylish yet durable, they improve your car's handling and looks. Available in a wide range of sizes and designs to suit your individual taste.
Headlights are halogen or LED. In conjunction with Dynamic Light Assist, one of the two LED headlight options automatically adjusts the beam for maximum illumination of the road without dazzling other traffic.
All models of Passat have LED rear lights, while the higher-specification versions feature a distinctive tail light signature that switches over to a vertically oriented brake like signature under braking.
The new Passat's radiator grille features four chrome bars which bend inward towards the headlights giving it a distinctive look.
Efficient and sporty fun.
The Passat comes with the brand new 2.0 TDI Bi-Turbo engine with 240PS. TDI diesel engines feature our latest common rail technology. These are incredibly quiet, responsive and fun to drive!Compare tech specs
