The new Passat Alltrack sets itself apart from the regular Passat by a 27.5mm higher ride height, an all-terrain look with new bumpers, underbody protection, door sill and wheel arches. All-wheel drive, 7-speed DSG automatic transmission and front assist including city emergency braking and pedestrian detection come standard. A dedicated off-road mode and hill ascend/descend control make it the most versatile Passat yet.
The interior of the 2016 Volkswagen Passat Alltrack features comfort seats in the new fabric/alcantara trim and stainless steel door sills. The pedals are finished in a rugged looking brushed stainless steel.
The infotainment options offered on the new Passat Alltrack is of similar high level as the regular Passat and includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto along with Mirrorlink. In addition special off-road info can be displayed on the touchscreen center console.
We drove the estate version called Passat Alltrack Variant with the 240hp / 500Nm strong diesel engine. This particular model feels very well at home on the autobahn and does a 0-100 km/h sprint in 6.4 seconds and tops out at 234 km/h. With an average fuel consumption of just 5.5 liter / 100 km it is very economical too.
