Price is the primary barrier to enter the luxury car market. Top-of-the-line features and performance are known to command steep prices. However, German auto maker, Volkswagen, has bucked the status quo by delivering affordable luxury for everyone in 2014. The Passat sets the standard with stylish design, peerless engineering and innovative technology.
Smooth, horizontal elements dominate the front with the headlights and grille forming a single unit. The grille is sculpted into a three-dimensional shape. From the side, the Passat has a muscular appearance, with powerfully sculpted wheel arches. The roof lines flow towards the rear, forming a “coupe-like” cut to the rear window. The three side windows create a long, extended glass surface that gives the mid-size sedan a sleek, sporty appearance.
The 2014 Passat is the largest ever measuring 4.868m in length but still maintains the unique design aesthetic that Volkswagen is known for. With a longer body, wider stance and extended wheelbase the new Passat offers passengers an impressive amount of interior room. And that’s just the beginning. Rear passengers can stretch out and enjoy three feet of legroom. That’s the most rear legroom in its class. The Passat features dual-zone climatronic and power windows with one-touch control. With additional feature options like Vienna leather seating, heated front seats, sunroof and Fender premium audio system, the Passat is sure to render a comfortable ride.
Performance and Engineering
Volkswagen is known for excellence in performance and the 2014 Passat continues its’ rich legacy for being a dependable ride. The Passat comes standard with a 170bhp, in-line five-cylinder 2.5L engine. It strikes a sporty balance between efficiency and power with impressive fuel efficiency rated at 9.4 city/13.2 highway litres per 100kms. With four-corner independent suspension, a bump in the road for one wheel has little effect on the others. So how does this effect your driving experience? Hopefully, it doesn’t. Four-corner independent suspension diminishes the impact of all those little inconsistencies in the road on you and your passengers.
Proving itself as a forward thinking, pioneering brand, Volkswagen has outfitted the 2014 Passat with innovative features. Staying connected is important and your productivity doesn’t have to stop when you’re driving the Passat. It has Bluetooth technology which allows passengers to make calls and stream music from a blue tooth enabled device, hands free. The Passat can also be outfitted with color, touchscreen navigation and mobile device interface, MEDIA-IN, for iPhone and iPad.
There’s so much to love about the new 2014 VW Passat. It embodies the premium German engineering that Volkswagen is known for and gives consumers innovative features. Starting at just 86,000 AED, the 2014 Passat is an affordable option for luxurious, German engineered vehicle.
