KUALA LUMPUR, 10 November 2016 – Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) is now accepting pre-bookings for its flagship model, the all-new Volkswagen Passat.
With an estimated price range from RM160,000 to RM199,000.00, the all-new Passat is available in three model variants – Trendline, Comfortline and Highline.
The Trendline and Comfortline are powered by the 1.8L TSI turbocharged engine, paired with an improved 7-speed direct shift gearbox (DSG). This combination provides an output of 180PS, and a torque of 250Nm, available in full, thanks to the turbocharger, between 1,250rpm to 5,000rpm.
The Highline comes with 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.
One of the most innovative cars in its class, the Highline variant of 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 customizable.
The Highline also comes 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.
