With more than 30 million units sold, the Passat is an international bestseller. The latest update – now the eighth generation – is based on the innovative “Modular Transverse Toolkit” (MQB). The new Passat features technologies such as “IQ.LIGHT – LED matrix headlamps” and next-generation infotainment systems (MIB3). The MIB3 systems are permanently online as required, adding a whole new range of in-car services and functions. New assistance systems that pave the way to assisted driving – grouped under the “IQ.DRIVE” umbrella brand – make the Passat safer and more convenient than ever before. For example, it is the first ever Volkswagen to reach speeds of up to 210 km/h semi-automatically using the “Travel-Assist” function. The Passat is available in eight powertrain versions, with output ranging from 88 kW / 120 PS to 200 kW / 276 PS. Also included: a plug-in hybrid (GTE) with a range of up to 56 km (WLTP) in E-mode.
