New Volkswagen Passat Tdi Saloon and Estate

Think astonishing MPG figures are only to be found in small hatchbacks and hybrid cars?

Then you might want to take a peek at an eco-minded Volkswagen Passat that’s just gone on sale, which despite being a big car manages a combined economy figure of 68.9 mpg for the saloon and 65.7 mpg for the estate.

The Passat BlueMotion comes with a modified version of Volkswagen’s efficient 1.6-litre common rail TDI engine, but adds low rolling resistance tyres, suspension lowered by 15 mm at the front and 7.5 mm at the rear, plus a revised radiator grille and underbody panel to minimise drag, to help make it more frugal when it comes to fuel.

Prices start at £19,875 for the saloon and rise to £21,180 for the Estate and are expected to arrive in showrooms at the end of July.
