The new 2.0 TDI Evo is the forerunner of a new generation of diesel engines – a highly efficient turbo diesel engine with an output of 110 kW / 150 PS that produces 10 g/km less CO2 than the equivalent engine in its predecessor. The spectrum of drives also includes three petrol engines TSI with 110 kW / 150 PS, 140 kW / 190 PS, and 200 kW / 272 PS as well as three diesel engines TDI. The latter deliver 88 kW / 120 PS, 140 kW / 190 PS, and 176 kW / 240 PS respectively. All TSI and TDI units fulfil the requirements of the Euro 6d-TEMP emission standard. Whether a petrol or diesel engine, all new Passat are equipped with a particulate filter.
Low operating costs
With high-production-volume engines, the Passat is one of the most economical mid-range models in terms of Cost of Ownership (CoO). Take the Passat 2.0 TDI SCR with 110 kW / 150 PS as an example: its COO amounts to 17.3 ct/km – the best among its direct competitors.
New equipment structure
The basic equipment has the designation “Passat”, followed by “Business”, with the highest level in future being referred to as “Elegance”. Business and Elegance can be ordered with optional R-Line personalisation. The launch will also see the release of a sporty special-edition model limited to 2,000 units: the Passat R-Line Edition in an exclusive colour. The special-edition model will be available with one of the two most powerful engines (176-kW-TDI or 200-kW-TSI) and 4MOTION all-wheel drive as standard.
