The balance of aesthetics and functional innovation is impressive and so too is its ambition to stay always one step ahead. The Passat philosophy. First impressions are 3 there 9s a lot to love about the new Passat, starting with the innovative key and key ignition.
Starting and parking has never been easier than with this simple, push-button electronic ignition switch. This key Full of unexpected pleasures. 4 5 also accesses an automatic boot release on the sedan 3 great when you 9re loaded up and don 9t have a spare hand.
The smart thinking continues with creative utilisation of space, such as the practical umbrella holder with drainage inside the driver 9s ... more. less.
door; a large glove box that is chillable and numerous storage compartments. Interior lighting includes reading lights front and rear together with soft ambient illumination and distinctive blue instruments. 6 7 Also stunning is the generous use of polished chrome trim throughout.<br><br> Intelligent solutions like the 8set and forget 9 automatic function that turns headlights and wipers on and off as needed, and the clever 8coming home/ leaving home 9 illumination are truly pleasant surprises. Other little touches 3 such as the high quality paint finish that extends to the engine bay and the tail lights with LED technology 3 emphasise the fact that Passat is an incredibly well thought-out vehicle. Full of unexpected pleasures.<br><br> 8 The Passat range. Both sedan and wagon offer a choice of the very latest petrol and diesel engines that deliver excellent fuel efficiency without compromising power. The Passat 2.0T FSI is impressive value with an outstanding list of standard inclusions, comfort and amazing space.<br><br> The 2.0 TDI with the choice of 2 engine outputs 3 103kW and 125kW like the rest of the Passat range is full of striking details, safety and convenience features and is bound to excite drivers and passengers alike, while the flagship of the range, the 3.2 V6 FSI measures up with extensive examples of luxurious thinking. 9 The Passat range. The Passat sedan and wagon are both crafted to exacting standards of quality, performance, safety and style.<br><br> They 9re much more spacious with distinctively elegant lines, dynamic form and a unique blend of function, innovative technology and luxurious little details. Take a look at the luggage space in the sedan. It 9s impressively large and equipped with hooks for hanging bags and securing luggage.<br><br> There 9s an ingenious 8load-through 9 feature that works simply by folding down the centre rear armrest to allow you to easily carry long items such as skis or golf bags. 10 With additional space in the cabin, driver and passengers can stretch out, relax and enjoy the elegant finish and driving pleasure. Thanks to the transversely positioned engine, all Passat models are blessed with additional space, which is something the designers have utilised brilliantly.<br><br> The wagon with the flexibility of a 60/40 split-fold rear seat and backrest adds a vast dimension to the carrying capacity of up to 1,731 litres. Additional touches in the wagon include retractable luggage cover, net partition and elegant chrome roof rails. 11 01 12 Interior.<br><br> 03 02 05 04 The promise of the elegant exterior matches the innovative interior concept. This is where functionality and intelligent solutions continue with many pleasant surprises. For instance, the user-friendly parking brake is operated by the touch of a button on the dashboard 3 and holds the vehicle safely.<br><br> It releases automatically once you 9re driving again. As soon as you sit inside you 9re aware of the reassuringly solid ambience. Superb materials and ergonomic design embody the detailed planning and luxurious touches.<br><br> Cast your eyes over the chrome finishes around doors, windows and the fine instrument surrounds on the dashboard. It 9s all class 3 as is the leather-clad gearshift. Breathe easy in the comfort of the dual zone climate control air-conditioning with two rear outlets for back seat passengers.<br><br> Appreciate the subtle convenience of the auto dimming interior rear view mirror. There 9s a low light sensor that activates the headlights while an additional 8set and forget 9 automatic function operates the windscreen wipers. 01 The Passat 3.2 V6 FSI is equipped with leather upholstery and individually heated front seats.<br><br> 02 The Passat Wagon offers asymmetrical split- folding rear seats and backrest with a load- through provision for a cavernous boot volume. 03 The centre console with armrest offers a convenient storage box. 04 The Passat 2.0T FSI and 2.0 TDI are standard with black cloth comfort seats.<br><br> 05 Starting the engine has never been easier with the innovative electronic ignition switch. 13 01 14 Interior. 02 04 03 Both Passat sedan and wagon boast luxuriously large luggage compartments with many carefully considered surprises designed to add even more impact to an already astounding space.<br><br> And for convenience the front centre armrest is height adjustable whilst the glove compartment provides chillable storage space. Passat 9s clearly arranged cockpit is more than elegant; it focuses on optimum driving comfort and ease. From the fully adjustable, lumbar supporting comfort seats to ergonomically designed controls, every driver 9s need has been pre-empted.<br><br> The electronic ignition switch and illuminated instrument panel is directly in sight allowing quick access to all major driving data and intuitive operation. The stylish three-spoke, leather-rimmed steering wheel offers touch-button audio and trip computer functions as well as height and reach adjustment. A standard premium CD in-car entertainment system is MP3 compatible and features a six disc changer in the dash and eight speakers front and rear for quality sound all around.<br><br> 01 The Passat features a three-spoke leather- covered multi-function steering wheel with audio and trip computer functions. 02 Superb in-car entertainment is ensured by a standard six disc CD changer sound system with eight speakers. 03 The driver 9s door incorporates a practical umbrella compartment.<br><br> 04 The Passat range is equipped with standard cruise control. 15 16 Safety. It 9s reassuring when you feel safe in all conditions and at all times; and that 9s the promise of Passat.<br><br> A galvanised steel body, intelligent technology and protective measures (such as laser welding, rigid body construction and impact-resisting passenger safety cell) promise the Passat driver and all occupants additional peace of mind. With the Passat being covered by a 12-year anti-corrosion perforation warranty, there 9s even more evidence of how seriously Volkswagen regards safety. Volkswagen 9s active safety concept features Electronic Stabilisation Program (ESP) that detects critical situations and acts quickly by braking individual wheels, reducing the engine 9s power output and giving more control back to the driver.<br><br> ESP is supported by an Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) and Brake Assist to recognise an emergency braking situation and increase the braking effect automatically. Electronic Brake-Pressure Distribution (EBD) regulates the ratio of front/rear brake pressure to ensure the Passat is braked optimally while Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR) offers terrific traction control. The Auto Hold function makes driving and stopping on steep inclines easy by automatically activating the electronic parking brake.<br><br> The combination of all these features assures the driver of greater control and/or maximised braking efficiency when needed. 17 01 The passenger safety cell is formed from steel panels with optimised strengths utilising the most advanced manufacturing techniques and materials. 02 With the innovative auto-hold function, the brakes are activated automatically when the vehicle comes to a standstill.<br><br> *Award source: 2005 Volkswagen Passat awarded c5 stars d by independent European motor vehicle safety assessment organisation Euro NCAP (European New Car Assessment Programme) during Euro NCAP Spring testing, May 2005. 01 02 18 Safety. The Passat also excels in passive safety measures.<br><br> It 9s fitted with standard three-point, inertia reel seat belts with front and outer rear seat belt pretensioners and front belt force limiters. There is a total of eight airbags: Driver and passenger front and side airbags, rear seat passenger side airbags and full length curtain airbags to help protect both front and rear passengers in a side impact. Additionally, the Passat offers front and rear parking sensors to help with parking and dashboard warning symbols that will advise any deviation in tyre pressure in plenty of time to adjust.<br><br> A very thoughtful feature is the 8coming home/leaving home 9 function 19 01 The Passat is equipped with a total of eight airbags, providing optimum protection for all passengers. 02 Front and rear parking distance sensors with acoustic warning help you when parking. 01 02 that illuminates the area around your Passat making it easier for you to get out of the car.<br><br> And in the interests of cyclist and pedestrian safety, there are special protective zones at the front and bumpers. No wonder Volkswagen Passat was awarded the impressive 5 star safety rating from Euro NCAP. 2.0T FSI.<br><br> 20 The new Passat 2.0 litre turbo-charged FSI is an awesome performer with 147kW and 280Nm of torque. This outstanding engine with direct petrol injection is exceptionally economical with a dynamic development of thrust resulting in terrific acceleration (0 to 100km/h in 7.8 seconds for both sedan and wagon). Its dramatic pulling power and smooth running is further enhanced by the 6-speed Tiptronic transmission.<br><br> Outstanding comfort and style features are standard in the new Passat models, such as the individual comfort provided by dual zone climate control air conditioning for driver and front passenger. In addition, there are electrically heated and adjustable mirrors with integrated indicators and tail lights with LED technology. The three- spoke leather steering wheel with trip computer and audio functions emphasises the sporty character of the Passat while another smart feature is the automatically dimming rear view mirror.<br><br> The many automatic features include an integral rain sensor that activates the windscreen wipers, a low tyre pressure indicator, low light sensor that turns the headlights on and the very convenient 8coming home-leaving home 9 function that illuminates the ground around the Passat. Of course, the Passat also offers cruise control, power windows, front and rear parking sensors and the premium sound system with a MP3 compatible six disc CD changer in the dash and eight speakers. Stylish 17" Le Mans alloy wheels are also standard.<br><br> 21 01 The distinctive tail and curved trailing edge, together with the chrome body side and rear bumper mouldings, emphasise the sporty character of the new Passat. 02 The Passat range offers dual zone climate control with a dust and pollen filter for maximum comfort. (Illustration shows optional brushed aluminium trim).<br><br> 03 The stylish 17" Le Mans alloy wheels are standard on the Passat 2.0T FSI and 2.0 TDI with 125kW. 03 02 01 The Passat range now offers the choice of 2 powerful and efficient turbo diesel TDI engines. Volkswagen 9s cutting-edge Pumpe-Düse technology injects fuel with great speed and precision under incredibly high pressure.<br><br> This produces an even more powerful, efficient and clean burning engine with the entry level TDI producing 103kW of power and 320Nm of torque from only 1,750 rpm and the more powerful TDI Passat producing 125kW of power and 350 of torque. The flexibility is remarkable while fuel consumption (6.6 litres per 100 km 3 combined cycle 103kW Sedan) adds even more appeal to the Passat. With its 6-speed Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) transmission you 9ll find your love of driving is fast becoming a passion.<br><br> As with all Passat models the 2.0 TDI has responsive electro-mechanical power assisted steering. This, together 2.0 TDI 22 Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) 23 with running gear that features a compact MacPherson strut front axle and a 4-link independant rear axle means there 9s plenty of compensation for any unevenness in the road. And that 9s another reassuring safety feature.<br><br> DSG is an advanced 6-speed gearbox in which the clutch and gearshift are controlled electronically. What makes DSG unique is that the next gear is already pre-selected and awaiting power to be transferred, resulting in a gear change that takes only 3-4 hundredths of a second. The benefit is virtually no interruption to power, traction or acceleration and because it ensures optimum transmission of engine power, DSG provides excellent fuel consumption and driving satisfaction.<br><br> 01 02 01 Distinctive chrome roof rails are an exterior highlight of the Passat Wagon. 02 The stylish 16" Milwaukee alloy wheels are standard in the Passat 2.0 TDI 103kW. 3.2 V6 FSI.<br><br> 24 The outstanding Passat 3.2 V6 FSI takes its place as the flagship of the range and the epitome of advanced German engineering. From its sporty rear end to its distinctive downward sloping nose, gleaming radiator grille and stylish headlights, the new Passat 3.2 V6 FSI is a dynamic work of art. It produces 184 kW of power and an impressive 330Nm of torque, whisking you from 0 to 100 km/h in only 6.9 seconds for the sedan (7.2 seconds for the wagon), and thanks to DSG, there 9s no interruption to pulling power.<br><br> In addition to the standard features shared with 2.0T FSI and 2.0 TDI, this top of the range model offers 4MOTION all wheel drive. Choose from standard beige or black leather upholstery, with individually heated front seats. Also heated are the windscreen wiper washers.<br><br> The Passat 3.2 V6 FSI is super safety conscious with low tyre pressure safety sensors, plus an anti-theft alarm system with interior monitoring and tilt sensor. Also standard are front fog lights mounted in the lower bumper and stylish 17" Monte Carlo alloy wheels. 4MOTION.<br><br> The Passat 3.2 V6 FSI features this advanced all wheel drive system. With variable torque distribution to all four wheels, 4MOTION provides the ultimate in enhanced road safety and superior handling. This innovative Volkswagen technology provides the best possible traction at all road speeds and conditions, regardless of the weather.<br><br> The system uses an electronic Haldex clutch that responds to traction losses at the front and rear axles, and directs torque to the axle with the best traction. 25 01 The Passat 3.2 V6 FSI offers front fog lights, mounted in the lower bumper, adding a sporty element and safety feature to the Passat. 02 The stylish 17" Monty Carlo alloy wheels are standard on the 3.2 V6 FSI.<br><br> 03 The Passat 3.2 V6 FSI is equipped with 4MOTION all wheel drive. 01 02 03 03 01 26 02 Optional Equipment. 05 04 07 06 The new Passat is available with a great list of extras that can make your choice even more individual.<br><br> The Bi-xenon headlights are stunning; the dynamic cornering light system swivels horizontally to allow better illumination of the cornering path. It 9s a brilliant piece of inspired thinking. While satellite navigation could keep you heading in the right direction.<br><br> A-touch of real luxury comes in the combination of walnut wood and brushed aluminium inserts in the dashboard and centre console. Or an electric glass sunroof that 9s slide and tilt adjustable with sunblind. The option of an automatic tailgate for Passat Wagon models offers fully automatic opening and closing of the tailgate.<br><br> Perfect for the family are child booster seats which are fully integrated into the rear seat of the Passat Sedan or Wagon. The booster seat cushions are bolstered to provide excellent lateral support in conjunction with the removable lateral head restraint. For greater individuality and flexibility of your vehicle, Volkswagen Individual offers you attractively styled 18 " Chicago alloy wheels with a 15mm lowered sports suspension package.<br><br> Special

Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) When braking, wheel speed sensors measure the road wheel speed and should one or more wheels start to lock the ABS system reduces brake pressure to that wheel. This prevents the wheels from locking during heavy or emergency braking, enabling the vehicle to remain steerable.<br><br> Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR) ASR improves driving and steering characteristics by preventing the front wheels from spinning under acceleration. When a difference in driving wheel speed is detected (i.e. when one wheel starts to spin due to differences in road surfaces, e.g.<br><br> due to water or dirt) the system automatically reduces engine torque. ASR is a switchable traction control system. Auto Hold function As soon as the vehicle comes to a standstill on a slope, the electronics activate the electronic parking brake automatically so that you can take your foot off the brake pedal.<br><br> This function is released automatically when you drive off again. Brake Assist During emergency braking, Brake Assist aids the driver by increasing the brake pressure automatically to a level exceeding the locking limit. The ABS is thus quickly brought into the operating range, which enables maximum vehicle deceleration to be achieved.<br><br> Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) DSG is a manual gearbox in which the gearshifts are controlled electronically. What makes the DSG unique is that it has 2 separate gear sets operated by 2 wet multi-plate clutches. The benefit of 2 gear sets and 2 multi-plate wet clutches is that one gear set and clutch is engaged driving the vehicle with the second clutch having already pre-selected the next gear awaiting for power to be transferred.<br><br> As the next gear has already been pre-selected prior to power being applied, the gear change only takes 3-4 100ths of a second. There is virtually no interruption to power, traction or acceleration. The DSG also offers Tiptronic gear selection and sports mode.<br><br> Electronic Brake-pressure Distribution (EBD) Electronic, more sophisticated means of regulating the ratio of front/rear brake pressure. Settings are varied according to driving and load conditions to ensure each wheel is braked to the optimum extent. Electronic Stabilisation Program (ESP) ABS and ASR traction control systems are integrated into the Electronic Stabilisation Program (ESP).<br><br> In short, ESP helps ensure that the vehicle goes where you steer it even in extreme driving conditions. The ESP system constantly compares the actual movement of the vehicle with pre-determined values and should a situation arise where the vehicle starts to skid, ESP will apply the brakes to individual wheels and automatically adjust the engine 9s power output to correct the problem. ESP prevents the vehicle from losing control when trying to avoid an accident, for example.<br><br> It also prevents spinning off on a curve due to either understeer or oversteer.
