Volkswagen confirmed pricing and specifications for the British version of the new Passat Alltrack. You can now place your order from £28,475, with deliveries scheduled to arrive from May 28. The Alltrack is the jacked-up sort of off-road version of the Passat estate. It doesn’t have the high driving position of a SUV, but it doesn’t have its price and poor fuel economy either.
Only one trim level will be offered in the UK, but with a choice of two drivetrains: a 2.0-litre TDI 140 PS with six-speed manual gearbox, priced at £28,475 (RRP OTR), and a 2.0-litre TDI 170 PS with six-speed DSG transmission, priced at £31,025. The first engine averages 49 mpg, the latter does 47. The Alltrack has a towing capacity of 2,000 kg.
Standard equipments: Alcantara upholstery, 2Zone electronic climate control, RNS 315 touchscreen satellite navigation, DAB radio, MDI iPod connectivity, Bluetooth telephone preparation, cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, tyre pressure monitoring system and 18-inch Canyon alloy wheels, plus Driver Alert System that monitors the driver’s responses to raise awareness of fatigue.
Options: Climate seats with massage function; High Beam Assist, which automatically controls dipping of the headlights; Side Scan Lane Change Assist, which monitors the vehicle’s blind spot; Lane Assist; ACC Adaptive Chassis Control; Automatic Distance Control with City Emergency Braking function; Park Assist (second generation); an interior ambient lighting pack; a rear-view camera; and an electrically deployed towbar.
