Striking design, new fuel-efficient engines and the most modern technology mark the eighth generation of the global bestseller, the Passat. The most successful European business car debuts with less weight and new assistance, infotainment and comfort systems, blurring the lines between the classes. The following technologies are new to the model: the Active Info Display (a completely digital instrument cluster) and the retractable Head-up Display and Front Assist plus city braking function with pedestrian recognition. Volkswagen is also presenting three world premieres: Emergency Assist (braking in emergencies), Trailer Assist (assisted manoeuvring with trailers) and the Traffic Assistant.
Active Info Display and Head-up Display will be available to order as options in the UK from May 2015
