Volkswagen merges elegance, sophistication and sustainability in
one with the release of the Passat CC 125TDI with BlueMotion Technology. Available on the 2.0 litre TDI engine,
BlueMotion Technology uses Volkswagen’s innovative Start/Stop system with brake energy recuperation, offering
the European manufactures most fuel efficient and environmentally friendly Passat CC to date. In addition, the
highly efficient regenerative braking system is now applied to both the Passat CC 125TDI and Passat CC V6 FSI,
all at no extra cost to the buyer.
Volkswagen Passat CC
BlueMotion Technology has been introduced to the TDI variant, which has been updated to provide the most
economical, comfortable and powerful engine. The effective 2.0 litre diesel engine, featuring the Start/Stop
system and recuperation braking as standard equipment, provides 125 kW of power @ 4,200 rpm while offering a
reduced combined cycle fuel consumption of 5.7 litres per 100km (a decrease of 0.6 litres). CO2 emission
levels have also decreased to 150 g/km.
The highly efficient automatic Start/Stop system is where real fuel savings are made in the Passat CC
125TDI. The system is operational through the vehicles brake pedal. When the driver depresses the brake, the
engine shuts down and a Start/Stop symbol illuminates on the multifunction display. In order to move away, the
driver simply releases the brake and the engine restarts automatically. The system can be deactivated through
the press of a button located on the centre console, if necessary.
The regenerative braking system, introduced with the new Passat recently, is now applied to both the Passat
CC 125TDI with BlueMotion Technology and Passat CC V6 FSI. The regenerative braking system helps to utilise
energy that would otherwise be lost during braking. In deceleration and braking phases, the alternator’s
voltage is boosted and used for bulk recharging of the car’s battery. Thanks to alternator control, it is
possible to lower alternator voltage and even switch it off entirely, thus reducing engine load and improving
Just as innovative as the powertrain technologies is the driver assistance system which can be optioned on
both Passat CC models. This driver assistance system offers Volkswagen’s advanced “Adaptive Cruise Control
(ACC)” with Front Assist and City Emergency Brake (City EB) function. Additional optional high-end
technologies include Park Assist 2 and Lane Assist. The convenience of Volkswagen’s Adaptive Chassis Control
system comes standard on both the 125TDI with BlueMotion Technology and the V6 FSI models.
Combining these state-of-the-art systems with the styling of the Passat CC - panoramic glass roof, frameless
coupé doors, 18-inch “Daytona” alloy wheels, chrome accents (interior and exterior), four ergonomic sport seats
(individual seating system in rear) with Nappa leather as standard, a three-spoke leather steering wheel and
automatic headlights - along with its range of safety features such as ESP with ABS, ASR and EDL,
Volkswagen has updated the model in an endeavour to keep it competitive in its class, especially with the Ford
Mondeo becoming more economical and with the new Peugeot 508 about to arrive in Australia.
