The Volkswagen Passat has been awarded the top achievement of five stars scoring an overall rating of 96 percent. The new Volkswagen Passat offers new levels of safety with two pioneering assistance systems making a debut which are completely new to the segment. An automatic fatigue detection system monitors driver inputs and emits an audible and visual warning automatically to recommend a break if required, and the new city emergency braking function which is a development of the Automatic Distance Control (ADC) system. If an unavoidable collision is sensed by the Volkswagen Passat, the brakes are automatically engaged at speeds below 18 mph. The system is also able to accelerate the vehicle automatically should an imminent rear end collision be detected, providing the road ahead is clear.
The new Volkswagen Passat has a fresh appearance both inside and out and adopts the latest technologies and efficiency measures. Every Volkswagen Passat with a diesel engine is now badged as a BlueMotion Technology product and is equipped with battery regeneration and stop/start systems as standard. Prices start at £18,470 for the Volkswagen Passat Saloon and £19,745 for the Volkswagen Passat Estate.
