The Passat BlueMotion 2 has automatic stop-start technology and a new 2.0-liter TDI 110 PS common rail diesel engine good for 46 mpg (U.S.) for the estate and 48 mpg for the saloon along with CO2 emissions of 128 g/km and 129 g/km respectively. Aerodynamics were tweaked by closing off the front air intakes and lowering the ride height; small changes we’ve gotten quite used to in the last year or so. VW calls this “the most efficient, economical and environmentally friendly Passat yet produced.” Costs start at £17,700 for the saloon and £18,835 for the estate, a moderate increase (£475) over the standard models.
