2011 Volkswagen Passat Price & Model detail released

Volkswagen gave us the very slightly facelifted 2011 VW Passat a few weeks ago. They like to call it the seventh generation Passat, but when we reported the reveal at the Paris Motor Show we said we struggled to see it as a anything more than six and three-quarters as its underpinnings are identical. Actually, Passat 6.5 might be e better description.

But for VW this is the new VW Passat for 2011, so it needs a new price list and some new model designations. In keeping with all things Blue Green , every diesel now gets the BlueMotion Technology badge together with stop/start and battery regeneration.

Which brings VW in to line with what BMW are doing with EfficientDynamics and Mercedes are doing with BlueEfficiency – adding the bits on as standard to its cars rather than have a separate model. Which we applaud. That said, VW will bring out a pure BlueMotion Passat next year which usurps the current economy and emissions figures.

But for now, the new 1.6-litre TDI 105HP  exceeds the economy of the old Passat BlueMotion, offering 65.7mpg  and 114 g/km CO2 emissions. The standalaone BlueMotion – when it arrives in 2011 – will manage 68.8mpg and 109 g/km.

The 2011 Passat will come in three trim levels – S, SE and Sport – and all get equipment jumps over the outgoing Passat. The S gets iPod connection and multi-function steering wheel; the SE gets eight-speaker digital radio, Bluetooth and driver fatigue warning and the Passat Sport gets the RNS 315 touchscreen SatNav. All Passats get ABS, ESP and WOKS (whiplash-optimised head restraints) as standard.

VW reckons the best selling model in the 2011 Passat range will be the SE 2.0-litre TDI 140 PS model, with Estate models outselling saloons for the first time.

The 2011 Passat Saloon starts at £18,470, and the Estate at £19,745, and you can order them from tomorrow (19/10/10).
