A new, facelifted Volkswagen Passat was officially unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show and shows off a range of new features for an exciting driving experience.
The new Passat will feature Travel Assist for the first time, an innovative system offering semi-automated driving at cruising speeds. Working alongside a other safety features, and constantly analysing the road ahead for speed limited, corners and junctions, Travel Assist can operate at speeds of up to 130mph.
Emergency Steering Assist will feature alongside this, offering further safety by allowing the use of evasive steering manoeuvres through braking.
Taking inspiration from the latest Volkswagen Touareg, IQ.Light will be available on the new Passat and offers LED matrix headlights for an exceptional view at night. Making night-driving safer, and more comfortable, the headlights feature over 120 LEDs that are individually controlled and can offer near zone illumination and signal functions in addition to main beam and dipped settings.
Under the bonnet the engine range has been updated too, with the GTE hybrid line offering 34 miles of pure electric driving, an increase of 12 miles over the outgoing model. Traditional fuel options are also improved with petrol offerings from 148PS to 268PS and diesel offerings between 118PS and 237PS.
The facelifted Passat will be available this Summer, so get in touch with our teams to register your interest and be one of the first to test drive one our demonstrator vehicles arrive.
All vehicles that are sold by the Vindis Group are subject to an administrative / preparation fee of £90 inc VAT. For new vehicles this charge covers the cost of mechanically preparing the vehicle for delivery, the administration of new ownership documentation and final preparation for customer handover.
For used vehicles, this charge covers a full history and provenance check prior to being advertised for sale ensuring no financial risk or charge has been levied against the vehicle, that the vehicle has never been written off or stolen and final preparation for customer handover.
Vindis Group believe this level of preparation is crucial in ensuring we provide the highest level of customer satisfaction, for which the Vindis Group is renowned for.
For this reason, and in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, as of 6.00pm 23/03/2020 we made the decision to temporarily close all Vindis showrooms to members of the public. Whist we know this may cause some disappointment, our priority is to protect the well-being of our employees and customers in line with the latest Government guidance. For customers due to take delivery of your new vehicle we will be in contact and will aim to complete your transaction in a safe and compliant manner.
For those customers that are booked in for Aftersales care, all bookings other than those for Key Workers (as identified by the Government’s latest listings), urgent MOT’s and breakdowns are in the process of being cancelled; and each existing booking will have been confirmed with our team in advance of your visit to site. For other routine service and maintenance items, we will be in touch to re-arrange your booking for as soon as we re-open.
In order to facilitate the above, and in order to protect both you and our staff, our dealerships will be locked for the foreseeable future, and so upon arrival, please follow the instructions on the door in order to gain access. Additionally, it is vital that we ask that you do not attend any of our sites without having had a clear and specific communication that you qualify under one of the above guidelines, and we thank you in advance for complying with this difficult and possibly disruptive decision. Please also note that we have amended our service opening hours during this period to 08:30 – 17:30 Monday to Friday and closed during weekends.
Finally, although our showrooms are closed, should you wish to contact us we would be delighted to help you remotely in anyway possible; the best methods in which to contact us is either via email or through the live chat function found on our main Vindis Group website.
Please stay safe through this unprecedented period and we know that by working together, we will come through this stronger.
