Volkswagen begins accepting pre-orders for the all-new Passat



With the new B8 Passat teased about a week ago, Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) is now accepting pre-bookings for its flagship model.

With an estimated price range from RM160,000 to RM199,000, the all-new Passat is available in three model variants – the Trendline, Comfortline and Highline. The Highline comes with a 2.0L TSI turbocharged engine and a 6-speed direct shift gearbox (DSG), delivering an impressive output of 220PS and 350Nm of torque from 1,500rpm to 4,400rpm.

The Trendline and Comfortline instead comes with the 1.8L TSI turbocharged engine that is paired with an improved 7-speed direct shift gearbox (DSG). This combination provides a still impressive output of 180PS, and a torque of 250Nm between 1,250rpm to 5,000rpm.

One of the most innovative cars in its class, the Highline variant of the all-new Passat comes with a cutting-edge Active Info Display system, a completely digital instrument cluster in place of the traditional instrumentation that is interactive and fully customisable. It also comes equipped with key safety features such as Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC), Electronic Differential Lock (XDS) and Lane Assist.

For added convenience, the Highline and Comfortline variants are offered with Park Assist, which makes it possible for the car to literally park itself in any parallel or perpendicular parking space; and Easy Open – a keyless sensor controlled trunk that opens automatically by detecting the driver’s foot.

The all-new Passat comes with a 5-year manufacturer’s warranty, and is available in seven colours – Pure White, Deep Black, Reflex Silver, Indium Grey, Crimson Red, Black Oak Brown and Harvard Blue.

Members of the public are invited to view the all-new Passat during a special pre-booking weekend event on 12 and 13 November 2016, at Volkswagen showrooms nationwide. Be the first to book a test drive of the all-new Passat B8 by visiting or visit any authorized Volkswagen dealer.
