The most efficient Passat ever created was launched in the UK. The all new 2016 Volkswagen Passat Bluemotion promises impressive statistics: 76.3 mpg consumption and just 95 g/km of carbon dioxide.
 
All this was possible thanks to the installation of a modified version of the Passat’s entry-level 1.6-litre TDI 120 PS engine with SCR, as well as BlueMotion modifications.  The engine’s maximum power is produced at 3,600 rpm, with torque of 250 Nm developed at 1,750 rpm. Standstill to 62 mph takes 10.8 seconds, while top speed is 130 mph.
 
In Estate guise, the same is true with 0 to 62 mph in 11 seconds and a top speed of 129 mph exceeding those of the standard 1.6-litre car. The 1.6-litre TDI BlueMotion is available in combination with a six-speed manual gearbox only.
 
Based on the entry-level S model, all Bluemotion Passat models feature a Post-Collision Braking System, Driver Alert, as well as Volkswagen’s 6.5-inch infotainment system. Stop/Start and battery regeneration systems are also standard on board, while the BlueMotion adds 17-inch alloy wheels with optimised low rolling resistance tyres, sports suspension (lowered by 15 mm), unique BlueMotion front and rear bumpers and BlueMotion badging and chrome grille highlights.
 
Prices for the Bluemotion model start at £23,200 for the Passat saloon and rise to £24,750 for the Estate. Passat and Passat Estate BlueMotion models are available to order now, with first deliveries expected in August.
