It’s German. It’s a Volkswagen. It has a 5-star Euro-NCAP rating. Need I say more? Packed with myriad passive safety features, the Passat will give you complete peace of mind in any eventuality.
There’s dual front driver and passenger airbags, side airbags and curtain airbags. There’s also the new anti-theft alarm system with immobiliser.
To ensure that you don’t fall asleep when driving (because it is ultra comfortable after all), there’s a built-in fatigue detection system that will give the driver visuals cues and an acoustic signal.
ESP and ABS with brake assist is of course standard, complemented by a flat tyre indicator.
The electronic parking brake is coupled with auto hill hold control, a very handy feature when on a slope.
