Although it’s not coming to the US, European drivers will enjoy the raised ride height, 4Motion four-wheel drive and rugged body enhancements of the new Passat Alltrack model, designed to venture off the beaten track.

Coming to European dealers soon, the car is based on the versatile Passat Wagon, but the Alltrack’s 4Motion and raised ride height give it greater agility off-road. The plastic body panels are designed to provide some protection from scrapes when covering rough terrain.

These features endow the Passat Alltrack with the practicality of a wagon and much of the versatility of a conventional SUV, while a high standard specification level adds a touch of luxury.

The vehicle is offered with both two- and four-wheel drive in some markets, as well as 1.8 and 2.0 TSI gasoline engines. There are also several versions of the 2.0 TDI engine with different power outputs and either manual or DSG transmission options.

One of the more popular options is expected to be the 2.0-litre TDI 140hp with six-speed manual or the same engine rated at 170hp with the DSG transmission.

Equipment includes Alcantara upholstery, 2Zone electronic climate control, RNS-315 touchscreen satellite navigation, MDI iPod connectivity, Bluetooth telephone preparation, cruise control, parking sensors and 18” Canyon wheels.

A Driver Alert System is available and ESP (Electronic Stabilization Program) is standard.

Further options include climate seats with massage function; High Beam Assist; Side Scan Lane Change Assist to monitors blind spots; Lane Assist; ACC Adaptive Chassis Control; Automatic Distance Control with City Emergency Braking function; Park Assist (second generation); an interior ambient lighting pack; a rear-view camera; and an electrically deployed towbar.

The Passat Alltrack has a generous towing capacity of 4400 lb (braked, 12% incline), 440 lb more than an equivalent Passat Wagon.
