The AWD Passat Alltrack features the latest 4MOTION all-wheel drive and unique exterior and interior styling.
New more powerful 2.0-litre turbocharged TDI engine mated to a six-speed DSG transmission
Wolgan Valley, February 2016. Volkswagen’s popular all-rounder, the Passat Alltrack, has returned to Australia, joining the existing range of the eighth-generation
Passat. Based on the spacious and practical Passat Wagon, the new Passat Alltrack offers an increased level of unique standard features and the added ability to explore with confidence.
The Passat Alltrack sets benchmarks in its class in terms of its ability to handle both sealed and unsealed roads as a wagon. This is due to the model’s latest generation 4MOTION all-wheel drive system.
As was the case with the previous generation Passat Alltrack, the new variant utilises a TDI diesel engine. The 2.0 litre turbocharged TDI diesel engine in the Alltrack makes 140kW and 400Nm, while still offering a low combined fuel consumption figure of 5.4 litres per 100km. This is achieved with the assistanceof BlueMotion Technology which comes standard on all Passat models and includes engine start/stop and brake energy recuperation, as well as a coasting function; a feature of the Passat Alltrack’s Eco drive mode – one of several adjustable settings available as part of the Alltrack’s driver profile selection.
The Passat Alltrack’s driver profile selection feature enables drivers to select an appropriate pre-determined drive setup from a choice of eco, sport and, unique to the Alltrack, off-road mode. The Passat Alltrack comes standard paired with a six-speed DSG transmission, which also ensures the best possible performance and efficiency from the 2.0-litre TDI engine.
The Passat Alltrack holds a commanding presence on the road among other Passat Wagon models, and is distinguished by a number of external visual cues that both enhance the vehicle’s appearance and its practicality on dirt roads.
Passat Alltrack – To the point
The Passat Alltrack sits higher than standard Passats, thanks to a ground clearance of up to 27.5mm above a standard Passat Wagon model, while wheel arch mouldings and flared side sills offer additional body protection.
Rounding off the Alltrack’s exterior, newly designed bumpers make the vehicle instantly recognisable from the front, while the standard 18-inch “Kalamata” alloy wheel specifically created for the vehicle, and unique rear badging, once again showcases the Passat Alltrack’s sporty credentials and completes the Alltrack-specific look.
The car’s stylish exterior design continues inside the Passat Alltrack, with sophisticated interior styling defined by such details as Vienna leather appointed upholstery, a leather multi-function steering wheel and gearshift knob, as well as LED reading lights.
The Passat Alltrack also features the latest in Volkswagen’s infotainment technology, with the added convenience of the innovative App-Connect system, which features Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ systems, which allow drivers to access content from their latest generation smartphones, from music to messaging and navigation. This integrated technology is displayed in high definition via the 8.0-inch Discover Pro unit with satellite navigation, which also offers USB, SD card and AUX-in connectivity.
At its heart, the Passat Alltrack imbues all the outstanding qualities of the Passat Wagon, and adds more. Providing generous boot space with the ability to hold 639 litres of cargo volume even with 5 adults on board, the Alltrack is the perfect vehicle for extra-long weekends. The cargo area offers an impressive interior length of 1,172mm up to the back of the rear seats and 2,018mm of interior length up to the back of the front seats. With convenience and practicality in mind, the Passat Alltrack also provides owners with a luggage partition net, shopping bag and load restraint hooks, interior illumination and a 12V socket in the boot.
Like all Volkswagens, the Alltrack has been engineered to feature the latest safety systems, to ensure maximum passenger protection. The new Passat Alltrack comes standard with multi-collision brake technology, a driver Fatigue Detection system, Continental mobility tyres, a low tyre pressure indicator, parking distance sensors and reversing camera, ESP and XDL.
In addition, nine airbags including front, front and rear side, curtain (front and rear), and driver’s knee airbags have been installed to ensure standard safety features are met, along with safety optimised front head restraints and three-point seat belts.
With an impressive list of standard features and equipment, the Passat Alltrack offers customers a wide range of practical and convenient inclusions. However, should customers wish to enhance their Passat Alltrack even further, an optional package is available which adds value-for-money and a host of luxury and assistance systems.
The optional Luxury Package enhances the Passat Alltrack exterior and interior appearance with a panoramic sunroof, ambient interior lighting, electric foldable mirrors, Park Assist 3 parking system, LED daytime running lights, LED headlights with Dynamic Cornering Function, Headlight washers and a chrome grille strip.
