Volkswagen Passat IQ. Light
Production record for the debut of the new Passat: the bestseller will pass the 30 million mark this spring.
This makes it the most successful mid-size model worldwide.
One thing is certain: the 30 millionth Passat will come from the progressively enhanced 8th generation.
A major technical update – a Passat that incorporates the latest brand innovations.
The new Passat will make its trade fair debut at the Geneva Motor Show.
Pre-sales will start in the first countries in May.
The market launch will take place in September (Germany).
“Travel Assist” is celebrating its world premiere in the Passat.
Making a parallel debut with saloon and estate versions, the Passat will be the first Volkswagen that is capable of partially automated driving at any speed (0 to 210 km/h) with this new IQ.DRIVE system.
In addition, the new Passat will also be the first brand model worldwide with a capacitive steering wheel.
This detects touch by the driver, providing an interactive interface to systems such as Travel Assist.
Another new feature in the Passat is “Emergency Steering Assist”, which increases safety when performing evasive manoeuvres by means of braking interventions.
The new, interactive “IQ.LIGHT – LED matrix headlights” turn night into day – this is an innovative light technology that has been exclusively available for the current Touareg so far.
