The Volkswagen Group Australia has its headquarters in Chullora, NSW and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the parent company, Volkswagen AG. A highly dedicated team of 150 people handle all aspects of the company’s operations, sales, growth, network of dealership and service facilities.
The Volkswagen Passat is a luxury quality Sedan that not only provides a smooth drive but also a relaxed ride for its co-passengers. The Passat can glide over any road irregularities or bumps regardless of its wheel size that varies across the model range.
The quiet well-insulated tyres, wind and engine noise and no penetration of any vibration noise inside the cabin makes the Passat superbly quiet, so much so that you can almost talk in whispers and still be heard. The Passat is uniquely refined luxury that will make it your neighbour’s envy!
Volkswagen brings technologies to the Passat that includes a driver fatigue detection system fitted as standard across the range. The most remarkable part is the two-mode radar-based emergency braking system that alerts the driver of a potential front-end shut. The advantage is that it primes the brakes to help reduce the impact intensity. But that’s not all as the Volkswagen Passat also has a revised automatic parking system that steers the car into a parallel or perpendicular (90-degree) parking spaces so that the driver only has to control the braking. That’s super convenience!
Volkswagen offers you optional Driver Assistance and Visibility Package that is designed to enhance the Passat’s existent safety features. This package offers a Lane Assist Lane Departure warning system, Bi-Xenon headlights with LED daytime driving lights and rear tail lights. Fog lights are standard on all models; however the static cornering lights in lower bumper are only on the 118TSI. The Passat Sedan features elegant chrome highlights that add an air of sophistication to every model.
The elegant exterior gets a sporty style with the alloy wheels on the Passat Sedan with 17” or 18” sizes depending on the model. It’ stylish interiors boast of soft leather appointed seats and a 12-way electrically adjustable front seats. You can also have the driver’s memory for the front seats in the V6 FSI Highline. This feature is optional on 118TSI and 125TDI Highline. To bring in some sunshine and the weather, you can go for the optional sunroof. The Volkswagen Passat Sedan also has satellite navigation / reversing camera standard across the range.
Volkswagen is highly popular in Australia and makes for an intelligent purchase that delivers what it promises!
