    Let the sunshine in! The panoramic sunroof is a re-interpretation of the legendary folding soft top

    The days are growing shorter, the leaves are changing colour, and fall is making its appearance. Despite the season, a lot of Volkswagens are still bright as in summer. There is a tradition here. Ever since the company's early years, intelligent roof systems have been capturing the light of the sun even in wintertime. As early as in 1950, Volkswagen began to offer the Beetle with a folding sunroof. In the mid-1990s, this roof concept was refined in the Lupo and Polo with electrically actuated versions. Today, transparent panoramic sunroofs are experiencing a boom. They are available for all Volkswagen models – from the small up! and new Polo to the large Touareg and new Arteon.

    To the Point: New Polo, Golf and Passat BlueMotion: Volkswagen radically reduces fuel costs

    "BlueMotion" is the best known German automotive environmental label. It debuted in 2006 with the first generation of the Polo BlueMotion, and its combined fuel con sumption figure of just 3.9 litres per 100 kilometres was the best in the world for a five-seat car. At the same time, this Polo represented the beginning of a product offensive being conducted today under the "BlueMotion-Technologies" umbrella brand, which is as unique as it is successful. Volkswagen is now presenting the three key high-volume models in its range as newly designed BlueMotion versions: the Polo, Golf and Passat. All three Volkswagens are equipped with an exceedingly innovative high-tech package, yet they are affordable for all car drivers. This package includes new common rail TDI engines, recovery of braking energy by regenerative braking, a Stop-Start system and refined aerodynamic components.

    The Passat

    In March 2005, the new Passat saloon was introduced into the first European markets. Generation One of this bestseller made its first appearance in 1973. It is a fact that within the past three decades this Volkswagen has become the very image of automotive progress, representing what "Made in Germany" means. This image is characterized by vehicle size, drive technologies, safety features such as airbags, ABS and ESP in addition to quality details including galvanized bodies. The Passat is now more than just a middle-class saloon. It has matured into a car with a character, into a perfect companion through more than three decades. The rational qualities of the product line have been consistently perfected in the new Passat. At the same time, however, the development team has breathed new passion and pulsating liveliness into this Passat through an uncompromising combination of shape, functionality, design and ergonomics.
