Volkswagen Passat 2011

  • Renovadas mecánicas con turbo e inyección directa
  • Versión Bluemotion de bajo consumo (4,2 l/100km)
  • Nuevo equipamiento disponible
  • Comercialización a finales de noviembre desde 24.620€

Por fin le ha llegado la hora de la renovación al Volkswagen Passat, un modelo que ya acusaba la vejez de sus más de 5 años en el mercado. Con esta nueva actualización lo primero que destaca es el diseño exterior, adaptado a la nueva imagen que el grupo está imponiendo a sus modelos y que presentó su buque insignia, el Phaeton. Esta nueva imagen le otorga un aspecto más sólido.

Los otros cambios más significativos son la renovación prácticamente íntegra de la gama de motores, que ahora incluyen turbo e inyección directa en todas las variantes, y una nueva lista de equipamiento que ha engrosado con opciones que hereda de modelos de mayor categoría. Tras más de 15 millones de Passat vendidos desde el inicio de su comercialización, parece que con este cambio el Passat estará más en forma que nunca. Estará disponible en los concesionarios españoles a finales del mes de noviembre con un precio que parte desde los 24.620€.

El nuevo Volkswagen Passat es una berlina de 4,77 metros de largo (mismas dimensiones para la versión familiar “Variant”) que se caracteriza por su comodidad de rodadura y su amplitud. Como en todo modelo Volkswagen se ha cuidado la calidad del interior, utilizando buenos materiales y esmerándose en los ajustes, pero sin olvidar la obligada sobriedad de diseño que le imponen sus genes alemanes.

El maletero ofrece una capacidad de carga excepcional, 565 litros en la berlina y 603 en el Variant, pudiendo llegar este último hasta los 1.731 litros al plegar la fila trasera de asientos. Dependiendo del propulsor escogido el cambio será manual de 5 ó 6 marchas y habrá en opción (en algunas versión es de serie) una caja de cambios automática de doble embrague “DSG” con 6 ó 7 marchas. Asimismo las versiones más potentes podrán tener tracción integral 4Motion.

En el apartado mecánico cabe destacar la renovación de toda la gama, que ahora sólo incluye mecánicas con inyección directa y turbo alimentadas que reducen de media el consumo un 18%, gracias entre otras soluciones técnicas, al sistema Stop/Start.

Como es norma en la casa la oferta mecánica es muy variada y se compone de 7 propulsores, 4 gasolina y 3 diésel, con potencias que van desde los 105 CV hasta los 211 CV (más adelante se incluirá una versión gasolina de 300 CV). A continuación puedes ver la lista completa:

  • 1.6 TDI BlueMotion 105 CV – 4,2 l/100 km
  • 2.0 TDI BlueTDI 140 CV – 4,6 l/100 km
  • 2.0 TDI BlueMotion 170 CV – 5,3 l/100 km
  • 1.4 TSI BlueMotion 122 CV – 5,9 l/100 km
  • 1.4 TSI EcoFuel 150 CV (puede funcionar con Gas Natural)
  • 1.8 TSI 160 CV – 6,9 l/100 km
  • 2.0 TSI 211 CV – 7,7 l/100 km

Volkswagen Passat 2011 Interior

Al igual que en el modelo precedente, el Passat se sigue ofreciendo con 3 niveles de acabados: Trendline, Comfortline y Highline. En esta nueva actualización el Passat puede incluir interesantes opciones de equipamiento que antes no estaban disponibles y que hereda de modelos superiores como el Phaeton. De serie incluye un sistema que detecta la fatiga del conductor avisándole con una señal sonora en caso de notar movimientos extraños en su conducción.

Entre los nuevos elementos disponibles destacan los sistemas de ayuda a la conducción y de seguridad activa, como el control de velocidad activo “ACC”, que es capaz de mantener una distancia de seguridad con los vehículos precedentes manteniendo una velocidad máxima prefijada (hasta 200 km/h) gracias a un radar situado en la parte frontal del vehículo. También es capaz de frenar por sí solo si detecta algún obstáculo delante circulando por debajo de 30 km/h.

Otras opciones de equipamiento son los faros bixenón con diodos LED para la luz diurna y función de iluminación adaptativa, el sistema de aparcamiento asistido, el asistente de cambio involuntario de carril con detección de vehículos en el ángulo muerto o una función que abre automáticamente el maletero al portar la llave y pasar un pie por un sensor situado debajo del mismo.

To the Point: The New Passat

# 15 million bestseller is more impressive, safe and fuel efficient
# First Volkswagen with fatigue detection and city emergency braking function
# At 4.2 l/100 km combined fuel consumption, the most fuel-efficient Passat ever

Wolfsburg / Barcelona, 14 October 2010 – With over 15 million cars sold, the Passat by Volkswagen is one of the most successful automobiles in the world. Now there is a new Passat. It is the seventh generation since 1973. The styling of the bestseller was completely re-interpreted, and its front end shows parallels to the Phaeton and is more impressive than ever. Furthermore, the Passat has always mirrored the course of technological progress. And this applies unreservedly to the seventh Passat, which will launch simultaneously as a saloon and estate car. The overall range of technological innovatio¬ns now implemented in the Passat Trendline (entry-level), Passat Comfortline (mid-level) and Passat Highline (top model) has reached a scale previously found only in upper and luxury class cars.

More innovation: A world’s first in this class is the fatigue detection system that is offered on the Passat. The system is a standard feature from the Comfortline equipment line. The Passat is also the first Volkswagen ever to have a city emergency braking function. The assistance system is part of the further refined ACC adaptive cruise control plus Front Assist. The city emergency braking function, active below a speed of 30 km/h, also reacts to stationary vehicles; if necessary, it automatically initiates a braking manoeuvre, thereby contributing toward avoidance of an impending front end collision or at least minimising the resulting damage.
More comfort: Yet, the new Passat offers even more finesses. All it takes is a specific foot movement behind the car to open the saloon’s boot lid (Easy Open). At the press of a button, the Passat “sees” parking spaces parallel and perpendicular to the carriageway, and upon request it can automatically steer the car into the space with centimetre precision (Park Assist II).

Seeing more: The driver does not need to be concerned about controlling the main beam light switch any longer; it is always there as long as traffic allows. The reason: In conjunction with the standard H7 headlights, the Passat automatically switches the main beam on and off as a function of oncoming traffic and traffic ahead of the Passat. This optional main beam assistant is called Light Assist. If the car is equipped with bi-xenon headlights that come with cornering lights, the main beam remains continually active and is only masked where other traffic participants could be disturbed by glare; this main beam headlight assistant is called Dynamic Light Assist. Both systems become active as soon as vehicle speed exceeds 60 km/h. As on the Phaeton and Touareg, the Passat also warns the driver of vehicles in the blind spot (Side Assist). The new Volkswagen utilises images from a front camera to detect speed limit signs, and it displays them in the cockpit. This traffic sign detection system also “sees” no-passing zones when technically possible, and it calls the driver’s attention to them.

More quality: The technologies and the further improved workmanship and material quality is differentiating the Passat from its competitors more than ever. This quality is perceptible in the interior with its high-end materials, new seats and door trims and ambience lighting. An especially elegant effect is produced by the modified centre console and redesigned accents in the instruments that are visually appealing and pleasing to the touch.

More quiet: The new Passat is extremely quiet. The reason: Insulating materials specifically integrated in the dashboard area and doors filter out exterior and engine noises. In addition, a new acoustic film is embedded in the front windscreen and is available as an option for the front side windows; this film blocks out additional noise.

More safety: Progress has been made in the area of safety as well. The previous model already attained an impressive 5 stars in Euro-NCAP crash testing. Further advances include features such as seatbelt fastening detection for the rear seats and head restraints that now also adjust horizontally on the front seats (standard from Comfortline). The new head restraints for driver and front passenger reduce the risk of whiplash injury in a traffic accident. Moreover, new assistance systems such as Side Assist optimize safety in the Passat.

More sustainable: Last but not least, the new Passat sets standards when it comes to sustainability. All ten engines (77 kW / 105 PS to 220 kW / 300 PS) are more fuel efficient – by up to 18 percent! The “smallest” turbodiesel (1.6 TDI with 105 PS) now only consumes 4.2 l/100 km; that is equivalent to 109 g/km CO2. The Passat BlueTDI (103 kW / 140 PS / fuel consumption: 4.6 l/100 km) already meets limits of the Euro-6 emissions standard (Category N). Downsizing and technologies such as the Stop/Start system also ensure the best fuel economy among the petrol engines. Another pioneering engine: the 1.4 TSI (90 kW / 122 PS). In the BlueMotion Technology version it is satisfied with just 5.9 l/100 km. All values for the Passat Estate lie on the same good level (maximum of +0.1 litre compared to the saloon). It is worth noting that each of these models is a safe, comfortable and powerful touring vehicle. Only, they are also very low emitting, fuel efficient and blessed with extremely long driving ranges. In the case of the Passat 1.6 TDI with BlueMotion Technology, its 70 litre fuel tank capacity and 4.2 litre fuel consumption yield a driving range of 1,666 kilometres – on one tank of fuel. So, it is good that there is fatigue detection to remind the driver to take a break from driving after at most four hours.
