New VW Passat BlueMotion Returns 76.3mpg And 95g/km of CO2

The VW Passat now gains a BlueMotion version, which traditionally is reserved for the most fuel-efficient model of the range.

That means that the new VW Passat BlueMotion is followed by the most environmental-friendly figures you can find on a non-hybrid Passat: 76.3mpg UK on the combined cycle and 95g/km of CO2 emissions for both saloon and estate versions.

VW has modified the 118hp (120PS) 1.6TDI diesel engine by adding a selective catalytic reduction system (SCR) ‘as well as BlueMotion modifications’. Maximum power comes at 3,600rpm with the 184 lb ft (250Nm) torque available at 1,750rpm. VW says that the saloon version is capable of 10.8 seconds for the 0-62mph procedure with the estate managing it in 11 seconds. Similarly, top speed is rated at 130mph for the saloon and 129mph for the estate.

The new Passat BlueMotion is available only as a six-speed manual and features a Pre-Collision Braking System, a 6.5-inch infotainment system, start-stop and battery regeneration systems and low- rolling resistance tyres for the 17inch alloy wheels.

Prices for the new VW Passat BlueMotion start at £23,200 for the saloon and £24,750 for the estate version in the UK market.
