The Volkswagen Passat Bluemotion 2 has a new 2.0 litre TDI engine which is quieter and more refined than previous Bluemotion models. A six speed gearbox would have been a better option but the five speed gearbox has been revised with longer ratios for third fourth and fifth gears to reduce loading on the engine and improve efficiency. The Volkswagen Passat offers CO2 emissions of below 130g/km and near 60mpg combined cycle fuel consumption.
This second generation Volkswagen Passat BlueMotion 2 model costs over £500 more than the first model and around £18,000. If you are a high mileage driver you could save £135 over ten thousand miles which proves this car is extremely fuel efficient. This Volkswagen Passat has many highlights such as Bluetooth connectivity for the telephone unit, a superior quality stereo, an electronic handbrake and a 2Zone Climatronic air conditioning system. Inside the Volkswagen Passat it is smart and functional; the boot isn’t as big as some rival but enough to cope with the demands of most families. The seats fold flat easily to give plenty of extended loadbay.
The Volkswagen Passat scored a maximum five stars for occupant safety in Euro NCAP crash tests. A key that fits into the dashboard offers a degree of theft protection, and keyless entry and starting is optional.
