Style and per­for­mance

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Motoring -

a com­bined fuel con­sump­tion read­ing of ap­prox­i­mately 5.7 litres per 100km.

In ad­di­tion to hav­ing low-rolling re­sis­tance tyres, part of this im­pres­sive fuel econ­omy is due to the Pas­sat’s start/stop func­tion that de­ac­ti­vates the en­gine when the car is at a stand­still and re­gen­er­a­tive brak­ing that re­cy­cles the lost en­ergy by stor­ing it for ac­cel­er­a­tion.

Pas­sen­gers are as­sured of to­tal com­fort in the stylish cabin that has the Cli­ma­tronic air-con­di­tion­ing sys­tem with three-zone tem­per­a­ture con­trol.

The driver will also take plea­sure in the 12-way driver elec­tric seat and the KESSY key­less lock­ing and start­ing sys­tem that is in­stalled in the Pas­sat Com­fort­line.

In the en­ter­tain­ment depart­ment, the Trend­line is equipped with the Com­po­si­tion Colour five-inch touch­screen dis­play ra­dio with USB, Blue­tooth, SD card slot and AUX-In fea­tures while the Com­po­si­tion Me­dia sys­tem in the Pas­sat Com­fort­line has a 6.5-inch touch­screen colour dis­play that sup­ports CD, MP3 and WMA files through USB, AUX-In, SD card slot as well as Blue­tooth con­nec­tiv­ity.

Com­fort­line buy­ers can also opt for the App-Con­nect up­grade that al­lows them to dis­play smart­phone apps on the touch­screen en­ter­tain­ment sys­tem.

As safety is at the core of all Volk­swa­gen ve­hi­cles, the Pas­sat is equipped with fea­tures such as Au­to­matic Post-Col­li­sion Brak­ing Sys­tem, six airbags, elec­tronic sta­bil­ity con­trol, anti-lock brak­ing sys­tem and brake as­sist, In­tel­li­gent Crash Re­sponse Sys­tem, hill-hold con­trol and ISOFIX an­chor­age point for child seats.

For added con­ve­nience, the Pas­sat Com­fort­line comes with Easy Open – a key­less sen­sor­con­trolled trunk that opens au­to­mat­i­cally by de­tect­ing the driver’s foot.

The all-new Pas­sat Com­fort­line is avail­able in seven colours – Pure White, Deep Black, Re­flex Sil­ver, Indium Grey, Crim­son Red, Black Oak Brown and Har­vard Blue. The Trend­line is avail­able in Pure White, Deep Black, Re­flex Sil­ver and Indium Grey.

As of Sept 1 last year, all Volk­swa­gen cars come with a five-year man­u­fac­turer’s war­ranty and five years’ road­side as­sis­tance.

Till the end of this month, Volk­swa­gen’s Raya pro­mo­tion en­ables cus­tomers to save up to RM15,000 or pay RM51 per day for their new Pas­sat Trend­line or Com­fort­line when they take a nine-year loan in­stal­ment.

Also, any vari­ant of the Pas­sat bought and reg­is­tered dur­ing this pe­riod is en­ti­tled to five years of free main­te­nance.

Not only that, be sure to check out the Raya Open House event that will be held at all au­tho­rised Volk­swa­gen deal­er­ships na­tion­wide to­day for more at­trac­tive of­fers and ar­range for a test drive in your favourite Volk­swa­gen ve­hi­cle.

All prices listed are ve­hi­cles’ sell­ing price and do not in­clude reg­is­tra­tion and in­sur­ance. Ap­pli­ca­ble for penin­su­lar Malaysia only.
