Meet the gold standard for performance and style in family cars. Smart, intelligent and capable, the Passat is made for sophisticated drivers who delight in innovative technology. Every Passat in the range offers outstanding levels of refinement, sophistication and innovation, which means there’s a Passat to suit you and your driving needs.
The Passat comes in four different options. Choose between petrol or diesel, as well as the level of safety and infotainment that’s right for you.
The Passat is luxurious, while still offering exceptional value for money. It’s more than simply a means to an end – more than just an A to B machine. The Passat is a car that’s an absolute pleasure to drive and a pride to park in your driveway.
The Passat is a testament to design. A longer wheelbase, shorter overhangs and sharp styling creates an imposing road presence. Its smooth silhouette gives the Passat a nimble and dynamic character, while its prominent shoulder line stretches the vehicle to give the impression of speed and athleticism.
The interior features a host of equipment and premium details that takes comfort, convenience and functionality to new heights. The multi-function steering wheel provides intuitive control of both drive settings and multimedia, while the highly considered ergonomics puts everything in comfortable reach.
The Passat has earned itself a reputation for understated and effortless luxury. Deluxe touches throughout are reminders to driver and passengers alike that this is truly a delightful and comfortable vehicle.
Keyholes are a now a thing of the past. You can start the engine of your Passat at the press of the starter button*. Selected models have proximity sensors which detect your key within 1.5 metres and the car automatically unlocks as you pull the door handle. (*Only keyless start is available on the 132TSI model, keyless entry and start is on all other models).
This clever feature reads the outside temperature and adapts the inside, to keep everybody comfortable. It also gives passengers, including in the back seat, the ability to control their own space. Plus, Air Care and the automatic air recirculation function with an allergen filter creates a pleasant interior climate while filtering out dust and pollen.
With an impressive 586L of boot space, the Passat packs space enough for all your family needs. The 40/60 split folding rear seats even offer remote release for ease of use.
Enjoy premium Black cloth upholstery on the 132TSI, Black Vienna leather appointed upholstery1 on the 132TSI Comfortline, Nappa leather appointed upholstery1 in St Tropez or Black on the 140TDI Highline, or Carbon Nappa leather appointed upholstery1 with the R-Line package and 206TSI R-Line.
The Passat is unapologetically a class-leading family sedan. With this in mind, only the very best safety measures will do. That’s why all the safety features and clever driver aids one would expect are featured as standard across the Passat range.
This potentially life-saving system continually evaluates steering movements and other independent signals, and if fatigue is detected, warns the driver with an alarm, and on the Multi Function display recommends the driver takes a break.
Whether reversing out of a busy parking lot or trying to squeeze into a tricky spot, an extra set of eyes is always handy. The Rear View Camera displays a live picture on your screen that shows not only what’s behind you, but also multi-angle views and dynamic guidance lines, which all come together to make reversing safer and easier.
When the airbag sensors detect a collision, this state-of-the-art system applies the brakes to slow down the vehicle so that a secondary impact will be lessened or avoided. During braking, the hazard and brake lights are illuminated and remain activated. The driver can take over at any time.
The Passat comes with nine airbags, including front driver and passenger, side front and rear, curtain front and rear and driver’s knee airbag. So if something does go wrong, you’ll be pleased you’re in a Passat.
Helps you stay in control of your vehicle by preventing under or over steering. If your vehicle starts to skid, the Electronic Stabilisation Program will apply the brakes to individual wheels and adjust the engine’s power output to correct the problem.
The Passat’s exceptional entertainment system will help put the quality into the quality family time you’ll spend in it.
Access your smartphone’s screen, selected apps, maps, and music through App-Connect on your car’s touchscreen and Voice Control. You can do this thanks to three innovative technologies: Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™ and MirrorLink® interfaces.
With two SD card slots for navigation and media, 2D and 3D (bird's eye) map views, CD player with auxiliary input and a 6.5" colour display with touchscreen, navigation has never been easier thanks to the Discover Media package on the 132TSI.
Discover Pro takes the infotainment experience to another level. Featuring an 8" display, DVD drive, Voice Control and 10GB of storage, Discover Pro brings all the features of Discover Media and more.
Using sensors on either side of the front bumper, together with parking distance sensors front and rear, Park Assist actively helps you 90 degree park, back into a park and get in and out of a parallel park.
Using a radar sensor, Front Assist detects when the vehicle in front is too close. It will warn you and prepare the car for braking. If nothing changes, it partially applies the brakes giving you a better chance of avoiding or minimising a collision. When you’re travelling below 30km/h, City Emergency Brake will prepare the brakes if a collision is likely. If the driver doesn’t brake, the system will do it automatically.
An upgrade on the conventional cruise control system, Adaptive Cruise Control employs the use of a radar sensor which, once you select your speed range, monitors the road ahead for other vehicles and adapts your speed accordingly – allowing you to maintain a safe distance when driving.
When cornering, this valuable safety system responds to the load relief at the front wheel on the inside of a corner, which improves traction and reduces the tendency to understeer.
BlueMotion Technology consists of a range of innovations and intelligent technologies designed to achieve greater fuel efficiency.
Part of BlueMotion Technology, this money-saving feature automatically stops the engine when you come to a standstill, and starts again on take-off, helping you cut back on fuel consumption.
Every trip in your Passat, whether short or long, is a pleasure courtesy of the powerful and refined 1.8 litre TSI and the 2.0 litre TSI and TDI turbocharged engines, with BlueMotion Technology and responsive direct-shift gearbox to ensure smooth delivery of power to the road surface.
The 132kW, 4 cylinder TSI turbocharged direct injection petrol engine delivers 250Nm of torque from just 1250rpm. This impressive performance also comes with low fuel consumption of 6.0L/100kmcombined.
Volkswagen’s cutting-edge TDI engine with diesel particulate filter features common rail technology that injects precise amounts of fuel at extremely high pressure. This results in years of hard-wearing durability, impressive torque and performance.
#Fuel consumption figures according to Australia Design Rule (ADR) 81/02 derived from laboratory testing. Factors including but not limited to driving style, road and traffic conditions, environmental influences, vehicle condition and accessories fitted, will in practice in the real world lead to figures which generally differ from those advertised. Advertised figures are meant for comparison amongst vehicles only.
Adding a bit more power to Volkswagen's award-winning TSI technology and adding 4MOTION, results in excellent drivability and instant acceleration in every gear. Plus, overtaking is safer and you can power up hills with no delay.
Whatever your driving style, and however you put your Passat to work, there’s one made just for you.
