Volkswagen Passat 2020-2019
IQ.DRIVE is the new umbrella brand for Volkswagen assistance systems. From now on, the technologies involved in autonomous driving will be bundled under the IQ.DRIVE label. An example is the new Travel Assist. The Volkswagen Passat will be the first Volkswagen that is capable of partially automated driving across practically the whole speed range (0 to 210 km/h). Along with its assistance system, the Passat represents the most advanced version of IQ.DRIVE yet seen.
Capacitive steering wheel
Volkswagen builds on intuitive operation and technologies that function largely automatically. The new Passat will be the first Volkswagen worldwide with a capacitive steering wheel. It detects touch by the driver, providing an interactive interface to systems such as Travel Assist.
Emergency Steering Assist also sees its début in the Volkswagen Passat. The system improves safety during sudden evasive manoeuvres via braking intervention. In addition, the lane guidance with Lane Assist has been optimised with a new multifunction camera. The new IQ.LIGHT - LED matrix headlights also enhance safety and comfort.
The third generation of the Modular Infotainment Matrix (MIB3) also has its début alongside the new Passat. App-Connect - the interface for integrating smartphone apps - offers wireless integration of iPhone apps via a wireless Apple CarPlay™ for the first time as a result. The Passat is now permanently online as the new Infotainment system also comes with an integrated online connectivity unit (OCU) complete with SIM card as standard. As well as improved navigation-related services with real-time information, this encompasses new technologies and offers, music streaming services, Internet radio, the use of updatable web app technology, natural voice control enriched with online content, the seamless use of online services provided by Volkswagen We, and future cloud-based portable vehicle settings. Smartphones (compatible Samsung models) also become a mobile key for opening and starting the Volkswagen Passat.
New Digital Cockpit
The hardware and software in the MIB3 form a digitally linked unit with the Passat's new Digital Cockpit. The digital instruments have been considerably enhanced compared to the previous system (Active Info Display). The enhanced high-contrast graphics display is clear and high-quality. The variety of functions has been lifted to a whole new level. Three various display configurations can now be customised via the new multifunction steering wheel at the touch of a button.
Zero emissions in the city
The new Volkswagen Passat GTE starts 2019 with a considerably extended electric range. It is now up capable of covering approximately 55 km in the new WLTP cycle, corresponding to around 70 km according to the NEDC. As before, the Passat GTE can be temporarily used as a zero emission vehicle and is not currently liable for road tolls in major cities such as London. Thanks to reconfigured operating modes, it is possible to use the necessary energy in a more targeted manner for emission-free driving in the city. At the same time, the combination of the electric motor and turbocharged engine (160 kW / 218 PS system power) means the Passat GTE provides the benefits of a comfortable, safe long-distance vehicle. The Volkswagen Passat GTE already achieves the limits set out in the Euro 6d emission standard, which applies to new vehicles from 2021.
Particulate filters as standard
An additional highlight is the newly developed 2.0 TDI Evo - a highly efficient turbo diesel engine with an output of 110 kW / 150 PS that produces 10 g/km less CO2 compared with the equivalent engine in the predecessor. The 2.0 TDI Evo is the forerunner of a new generation of diesel engines. The powerplant range also includes three petrol engines (TSI) with 110 kW / 150 PS, 140 kW / 190 PS, and 200 kW / 272 PS as well as three diesel engines (TDI); the latter deliver 88 kW / 120 PS, 140 kW / 190 PS, and 176 kW / 240 PS respectively. All TSI and TDI units fulfil the requirements of the Euro 6d-TEMP emission standard. In addition, every new Passat - whether a petrol or diesel engine - is equipped with a particulate filter.
