New Volkswagen Passat to start from €27,295

The new eighth-generation Volkswagen Passat, which will go on sale in Ireland for January 2015. The new car, which boasts a brand new design, new engines and a host of new technologies, will have a starting price of just €27,295 for the 1.4-litre 125bhp TSI petrol model in saloon guise. Pricing for the diesel range, will start at only €28,940 for the 1.6-litre 120bhp TDI version.

The estate model will start at €29,225 for the 1.4 125bhp TSI and only €31,200 for the 1.6-litre 120bhp TDI.

There will be a choice of two petrol and three diesel engines across the range for the new Passat. The 1.4-litre 125bhp TSI petrol is joined by a 1.4-litre 150 TSI which employs Volkswagen’s Active Cylinder Technology, which shuts off two of the engine’s four-cylinders when not required, which has a significant fuel-saving effect.
