The new Volkswagen Passat BlueMotion and Passat Estate BlueMotion are available to order now with the first models arriving in showrooms near the end of July 2011.

The Volkswagen Passat BlueMotion features a modified 1.6 litre common rail TDI engine producing 105PS with a six speed manual gearbox.

The latest BlueMotion model features aerodynamic improvements and modifications which reduce drag, including low rolling resistance tyres, lowered suspension (15mm at the front, 7.5mm at the back) and a revised radiator and underbody panel. The Volkswagen Passat BlueMotion saloon is now fitted with a rear spoiler.

16 inch lightweight and aerodynamic steel rims are standard fit, with 17 inch 'Buenos Aires' alloy wheels available as an option.

The revisions and modifications will see combined fuel consumption of 68.9mpg for the saloon and 65.7mpg for the estate. CO2 emissions are 109g/km (VED band B) and 113g/km (VED band C) for the saloon and estate respectively.

The BlueMotion models cost £220 over the Volkswagen Passat S models they are based on, and come as standard with curtain airbags, ESP, 'Climatic' air conditioning, electric windows, electronic parking brake, RCD 310 radio / CD player and Multi Device Interface (MDI) with iPod connectivity. Optional technologies include fatigue detection system with cruise control, Part Assist II and High Beam Assist.

The new Volkswagen Passat and Passat Estate BlueMotion models are available through Volkswagen Finance and with free servicing for three years or 30,000.
