Over the past four decades, properly over 15 million Passat automobiles have been constructed. In addition to its favourable all-round qualities, the good results of the bestseller – which can be sold on all of the world’s continents – could be attributed to the Passat’s wide and diverse range of versions. Now, Volkswagen is extending the model series with another specialist: the Volkswagen Passat Alltrack.
This new version is provided in an estate auto configuration, and it closes the gap between the conventional Passat Estate and SUVs including the Tiguan. The rationale right here: several auto drivers who use their car as a towing car, or in light off-road scenarios, want a versatile, sporty and incredibly roomy passenger car which has rugged qualities. Volkswagen developed the VW Passat Alltrack for this clientele. In comparison with the familiar Passat Estate, the new model is defined by new bumpers in SUV style – with wheel nicely and side sill flares. Its greater off-road ramp angle, strategy angle, departure angle and higher ground clearance all make the Volkswagen Passat Alltrack a superb SUV alternative for driving on unpaved track.
Two turbocharged direct injection petrol engines (TSI) with 118 kW / 160 PS and 155 kW / 210 PS and two turbodiesels (TDI) – also with direct injection – with 103 kW / 140 PS and 125 kW / 170 PS are readily available in the Volkswagen Passat Alltrack. The two most potent Alltrack versions, the 170 PS TDI and the 210 PS TSI, have regular 4MOTION all-wheel drive and a dual clutch transmission (DSG). For the VW Passat Alltrack having a 140 PS TDI, Volkswagen will offer you all-wheel drive as an solution. Just how effectively the engines of the VW Passat Alltrack operate together with the intelligently controlled 4MOTION all-wheel drive system is illustrated by the two TDI engines: the 140 PS version has a low combined fuel consumption of five.7 l/100 km (equivalent to 150 g/km CO2), though fuel consumption for the 170 PS version is five.eight l/100 km (152 g/km CO2).
