2019 Volkswagen Passat Alltrack – A Progressive All-Rounder. 2019 Volkswagen Passat Alltrack – Drive, Interior and Exterior. Subscribe.
The all-wheel-drive Passat Alltrack was developed for private and business high-mileage drivers who do not just drive the Passat on surfaced roads, who want to hitch a trailer to it or who also value the perfect grip when on a skiing holiday.
A progressive all-rounder that comes into its own when the going gets tough on the basis of the Passat Estate – a crossover from the estate and SUV models.
The standard specification of the Passat Alltrack includes bumpers adapted for offroad driving with underbody protection, sill extensions also featuring underbody protection, and robust wheel arch extensions.
Thanks to a special off-road mode, modified running gear with greater ground clearance and the permanent 4MOTION four-wheel drive, the Passat Alltrack is just as much at home when driving off-road on terrain otherwise reserved for four-wheel drive SUVs.
At the same time, the Passat Alltrack is also a comfortable and fast touring car. The Passat Alltrack is available with a 2.0 TSI with 200 kW or a choice of two TDIs with 140 kW and 176 kW respectively.
A 7-speed dual clutch gearbox (DSG) is standard for all variants. The standard equipment also includes 17-inch alloy wheels (Ancona), electrically folding exterior mirrors, a sports steering wheel with perforated leather, trapezoidal exhaust system trims and Alltrack lettering on the front wings.
The Passat’s most powerful engine variant generates 200 kW / 276 PS (5,500 to 6,200 rpm). It delivers its maximum torque of 350 Nm as of 2,000 rpm and constantly maintains this high level up to 5,400 rpm. The top speed of the Saloon and Estate has been electronically limited to 250 km/h, which is also the top speed of the Passat Alltrack that is available with this engine.
The independent Passat Alltrack variant with permanent four-wheel drive is also available with the 190 PS TDI engine.
The 2.0 TDI with 240 PS (at 4,000 rpm) is the most powerful turbo diesel direct-injection engine within the Passat range. This engine version is also available for the Passat Alltrack.
With standard equipment details such as LED headlights and LED tail light clusters, the Front Assist emergency brake assistant plus pedestrian detection, the Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), the Keyless Start system, the Composition radio system (MIB2), a telephone interface, smartphone integration via App Connect (wired) or mobile online services via We Connect and We Connect Plus, the new Passat equipment variant offers an even better price/performance ratio than the replaced Trendline version.
In addition to the equipment versions and R-Line packages, the new Passat can also be individually adapted through a wide range of individual options and various packages. These include four new optional alloy wheels: the 17-inch Sebring wheel rim, the 18-inch Liverpool or Bonneville wheel rims and the 19-inch Pretoria wheel. Additional equipment highlights include the head-up display, background lighting in up to 30 colours, a tilting and sliding panoramic sunroof, a wide range of driver assist systems, the adaptive chassis control (DCC), the new Discover Media and Discover Pro Infotainment systems, the 700 watt Dynaudio Confidence sound system, the new IQ.LIGHT – LED matrix headlights (Elegance series), the Easy Open locking system (unlocking the tailgate or boot lid from the outside, including Keyless Access locking and starting system) and an auxiliary heater. The Business Premium special package was specifically tailored to professional frequent drivers. It includes details such as Air Care Climatronic, App Connect Wireless for the first time, a 230 V socket on the rear centre console, the Rear View camera system, the Lane Assist lane departure warning system and Traffic Jam Assist, the Comfort mobile phone interface with inductive charging function in the centre console as well as a USB-C interface and USB charging sockets.
Partially assisted longitudinal guidance. The latest generation of adaptive cruise control – ACC – incorporates predictive cruise control. Up until now, the system in the Passat was a pure Adaptive Cruise Control system: just set the desired speed – braking and accelerating was then carried out by the Adaptive Cruise Control. This proven feature will also be offered in the new Passat. From now on, the new, predictive ACC will be available as an additional option. In combination with the navigation system and Dynamic Road Sign Display, the system can also react to variable parameters such as speed limits.
Integrated sensors. ACC with predictive cruise control calculates the vehicle position based on the route and GPS data and reduces the vehicle speed before reaching bends, roundabouts, junctions, speed limits and towns.
