Beautifully conceived.

Great handling, dynamic performance qualities and a high-class ambience: the Passat.


Stately appearance.

On the outside, the new Passat is a picture of sporting elegance and radiates an extraordinary sense of dynamism and poise. Clean-cut lines, a longer wheelbase plus shorter overhangs: this sedan has a distinctly sporty yet highly refined air about it. This is helped by the new wheel designs in 17- and 18-inch sizes.

The new Passat has an unmistakable and highly attractive light signature thanks to its LED headlights and LED tail lights, which produce a higher light output while consuming little energy. They are also exceptionally long-lasting.


Graceful styling and a pleasant sense of spaciousness await you inside. Passengers in the rear also enjoy plenty of room.

The interior of the Passat pampers you with top-quality, carefully crafted materials as well as space in abundance. It doesn’t matter whether you’re sitting in the front or rear, there’ll be no shortage of head and legroom. This feeling of spaciousness helps to ensure a relaxed drive on long journeys in particular.

One of the first features to stand out is the innovative strip-style air vent extending in a continuous horizontal line across the entire width of the instrument panel. Not only does this form a bold visual highlight, it has benefits for noise levels and climate control too.

When darkness falls, illuminated door trim panels and inside door handles create a stylish lighting effect that also helps you to find your way around the interior.


Numerous factors contribute to the driver's sense of well-being. Experts from a wide spectrum of disciplines came up with some great comfort-enhancing ideas for the new Passat.

The new Passat is a masterful blend of elegance, straightforward controls, dynamism and comfort – which is particularly noticeable over long distances. The sense of well-being is enhanced by features such as the 'Climatronic' 3-zone air conditioning system. A separate control panel allows the passengers in the rear to adjust the climate settings in the back of the Passat to suit their individual preferences, while the driver and front passenger also have independent control over the temperature, airflow and air distribution for their respective sides.


Making rapid progress while enjoying smooth running and optimum damping: a host of innovative measures help to make the new Passat a real pleasure to drive.

Standard, comfortable or sporty: you can vary your Passat’s handling characteristics by adjusting the damper settings at the push of a button. Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) - standard on the Passat 2.0 TSI Exclusiveline and R-Line - allows you to fine-tune the chassis to suit your personal driving style. The electrically adjustable dampers are automatically adapted to the prevailing road surface conditions and driving situation with split-second speed.


Radio and navigation systems to suit all requirements: the infotainment range leaves absolutely nothing to be desired. You even have the option of enjoying near-concert-hall sound quality.

You will soon find the ideal companion for your travels amongst the radio and navigation systems that are available, no matter whether you need a port to connect your smartphone or MP3 player, want to listen to your CD collection or like to be kept up to date with all the latest news. The two units offer user-friendly operation thanks to their touchscreen design. The 'Discover Pro' radio/navigation system can even be operated by voice commands as standard. The Passat 2.0 TSI Exclusiveline comes with the 'DYNAUDIO Confidence' sound system, whose 10 speakers have been perfectly matched to the geometry of the vehicle’s interior.
