Business Traveller (India) - - INDIA CAR REPORT 2018 -

The All-New Pas­sat is one of the lux­ury sedans that is bold with­out be­ing loud. It is the first sedan to be based on the MQB plat­form in In­dia and is up to 70kg lighter as com­pared to its pre­de­ces­sor yet of­fers im­proved rigid­ity. It also comes with pre­mium fea­tures such as Park As­sist, which as­sists the driver by au­to­mat­i­cally car­ry­ing out the op­ti­mum steer­ing move­ments in or­der to re­verse-park on the ideal line. The All-New Pas­sat is pow­ered with an ef­fi­cient 2.0 L TDI diesel en­gine mated to a 6 speed au­to­matic-DSG gear­box that of­fers su­pe­rior fuel ef­fi­ciency of 17.42 kmpl (As per ARAI).

Gen­er­at­ing peak power of 130kW (177 PS) and a torque of 350 Nm rang­ing from 1500-3500 rpm, the Pas­sat is un­doubt­edly a trend­set­ter amongst car en­thu­si­asts in In­dia. In terms of de­sign, Volk­swa­gen has ap­plied a pro­gres­sive de­sign strat­egy giv­ing the car a pres­ence, sleek and so­phis­ti­cated look. The Full LED head­lights and tail­lights pro­vide bet­ter light­ing with re­duced en­ergy con­sump­tion.

The eighth gen­er­a­tion of the All-New Pas­sat is re­garded as one of the most in­no­va­tive cars in its seg­ment with its dis­tinct com­bi­na­tion of power, per­for­mance and ef­fi­ciency. volk­swa­gen.co.in
