Volkswagen has already shown us new Alltrack versions of the Golf, Multivan and now it is time for the new Passat.
The Alltrack version of the new Passat is all about offering something between a bigger SUV and standard estate car.
Permanent 4MOTION all-wheel drive and ground clearance increased by 27.5 mm should offer great on-road and off-road driving experience. The car also has special off-road driving programme with adapted assistance systems and a modified chassis.
Volkswagen offers the new second generation Passat Alltrack with a choice of five new direct-injection engines: two turbo petrol engines (TSI) with 150 and 220 hp and three turbodiesel engines (TDI) delivering 150, 190 and 240 hp.
The 150 hp TSI and TDI engines are linked to manual 6-speed gearbox. All of the more powerful versions come equipped with a 6-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
The 2.0 TSI with 220 hp and 2.0 TDI with 240 hp are also equipped with standard XDS+ on both axles. This system brakes the wheels on the inside of the bend during fast cornering and thus optimises the steering response.
The new Passat Alltrack is also great choice if you need to tow a boat or a motorhome with a towing capacity of up to 2,200 kg.
Notable personalisation options in the Passat Alltrack:
– Ambient lighting
– Adaptive Cruise Control ACC
– Infotainment system (incl. media library, navigation, telephone)
– Automatic climate control
– Instrument cluster/multifunction display
– Lane Assist
– Light and Sight

The new Passat Alltrack will debut in less than two weeks at the Geneva Motor Show. Market launch is scheduled for the end of September just in time for the next winter.
