Volkswagen has revealed the latest versions of the Passat sedan and Passat Variant wagon that the rest of the world enjoys. When the car is not in use or in the event of a crash, the Passat GTE’s electric power is automatically cut off. The BMC performs safety, diagnostic and monitoring functions, and it also regulates the temperature in the battery junction box (interface for supplying the motor with energy). The battery itself is liquid-cooled; the cooling system is also controlled by the battery management controller, which continually acquires the temperature distribution within the battery and reports cooling needs to the thermal management system. Volkswagen provides a warranty on the high-voltage battery of eight years or 160,000 km (99,419 miles).
Standard features include 17-inch alloy wheels, the latest MIB II Composition Media infotainment system, satellite radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, and a range of driver assistance features, including forwarding collision warning, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert. Adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, parking sensors and a self-parking system are available as options.
2.0-liter Four-cylinder Engine
The new Passat will continue to use a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, but upgraded transmission hardware and new software tuning unlock more low-end torque, now up to 207 pound-feet of torque compared to 184 lb-ft in the current model. The V6 is no longer offered, and that’s too bad — it was strong and sounded really good — but the extra sauce from the four-cylinder should make that an easier pill to swallow. As before, power reaches the front wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission.
Automatic Post-collision Braking
The Passat refresh has automatic post-collision braking, which prevents the car from pinballing away and crashing into other objects after an initial impact, as standard on all models, as is a rearview camera. Adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warning with autonomous emergency braking, a blind-spot monitor with rear traffic alert, lane-departure warning, and parking steering assist are all available depending on trim level.
