Following its online debut back in July, Volkswagen UK has announced pricing for the new eight-generation Passat saloon and estate models, with prices starting from £22,215 for the entry-level saloon with a 118bhp 1.6 TDI linked to a 6-speed manual.

The entry-level Passat Estate can be yours for £23,475.

Compared to the outgoing model the new Passat is up to 85kg lighter, while the overall length is 4767mm (-2mm), width is 1832mm (+12mm) and the height is 1456mm (-6mm).

At the same time wheelbase has grown by 79mm to 2791mm offering extra leg and interior room. For improved handling the front track is increased by 31mm to 1584mm with rear track up by 14mm to 1586mm.

In UK the new Passat will be offered from launch exclusively with diesel engines ranging in power from 118bhp to 236bhp.

A plug-in hybrid GTE version with a 1.4-litre TSI petrol engine and electric motor will follow in October 2015.
