Volkswagen Passat BlueMotion Front ViewVolkswagen Passat BlueMotion and Volkswagen Passat Estate BlueMotion have received a wide range of updates, which will enhance their appeal. The multi-award-winning vehicles will not only count on looks, but will also perform exceptionally efficient for its future owners. Precisely, both models return 76.3 mpg and emit only 95 g/km of carbon dioxide.

Engine

These numbers of efficiency and emissions are possible due to the new updated version of the Passat's entry-level 1.6-litre TDI engine. The modifications include SCR and BlueMotion. The unit produces 120 horsepower (88 kW) at 3,600 rpm and has a torque of 250 Nm (185 lb-ft) developed at 1,750 rpm.

The acceleration time for the Passat BlueMotion from standstill to 62 mph (100 km/h) is estimated at 10.8 seconds. The top speed is electronically limited at 130 mph, which is slightly greater than the standard 1.6-litre engine. This of course means no compromises in terms of BlueMotion's performance.

Volkswagen Passat Estate BlueMotion runs the 0-62 mph sprint in 11 seconds and its top speed is 129 mph. Both variants of the car will be offered with a six-speed manual gearbox only.
