New Volkswagen Passat Launched For ₹ 30 Lakhs

It is available with a single 175-bhp diesel engine option.

 

Volkswagen India has finally launched the all-new Passat in the country. It is available in two variants and is powered by a single diesel engine mated to an automatic transmission.

 

Volkswagen Passat (ex-showroom, pan-India)

2.0 TDI AT Comfortline – ₹ 30 lakhs

2.0 TDI AT Highline – ₹ 33 lakhs

 

The Passat is the first VW sedan in India based on the company’s modular MQB platform (the Tiguan SUV is the first VW model to be based on MQB in India). The new platform has allowed VW to shed nearly 70kg compared to the previous gen car. At the front, the radiator grille features three chrome bars and the lowermost one continues into the headlamps. The standard headlamps and tail-lamps on the car are LED units. The side features a sharp belt-line and the lower part of the doors features a groove. The car sits on 16- or 17-inch wheels. The Passat is available in six colour options – Oryx White Pearleffect, Deep Black Pearleffect, Black Oak Brown Mettalic, Pyrit Silver Metallic, Atlantic Blue Metallic and Mangan Grey Metallic.

 

On the inside the Passat comes equipped with fully electrically adjustable front seats, leather upholstery, 3-zone automatic climate control, flat-bottom steering wheel, sunroof, 60:40 rear seat backrest flip, etc. Features available include easy boot opening (operated by waving foot below boot), hill start assist, auto hold, reverse camera with 360-degree view, park assist, dynamic chassis control, 9-airbags, etc.

 

Powering the new Passat is a single diesel engine option – a 2.0-litre diesel engine producing 175-bhp and 350-Nm of torque (same as found in the Skoda Superb). It is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission which powers the front wheels. VW says the ARAI rated mileage figure is 17.42 km/l.

 

The Volkswagen Passat will compete directly with the Skoda Superb and also the Toyota Camry. As a special introductory offer, VW is offering a 2+2 year warranty and 4 years road side assistance on the Passat.
