    • Four new petrol engine options in Passat and Tiguan families
    • Previously diesel- or hybrid-engined Passat gains new units
    • Tiguan SUV petrol engine line-up is significantly expanded


    Four efficient petrol engines are now available to order for the first time from Volkswagen Retailers in the popular Passat Saloon and Estate, and Tiguan SUV, model ranges.


    The comprehensive line-up of new petrol engines now being offered in Passat and Tiguan further broaden the cars’ appeal while also allowing the growing numbers of buyers keen to enjoy the benefits of petrol power to consider two of Volkswagen’s most popular models.


    The stylish Passat Saloon and Estate family enters this growing market sector with four petrol engines options, ranging from a frugal 1.4-litre TSI 125 PS to a potent 2.0-litre TSI 220 PS, and also including the impressive 1.4-litre TSI 150 PS with Active Cylinder Technology.


    What’s more, for the first time the sporty R-Line trim is being made available with an entry-level engine in Passat. This broadens choice as well as making stylish R-Line ownership even more accessible – with the new 1.4-litre TSI 125 PS Passat R-Line a particularly attractive proposition for style- and budget-conscious buyers.


    Hard-headed fleet and business users could be equally enamoured of the new petrol-powered Passats thanks to a strong set of benefit in kind (BIK) statistics.


    When it comes to company car tax, the Passat 1.4 TSI ACT 150 PS SE Business six-speed manual, with an on-the-road price of £23,775 RRP, produces a BIK rating of 22% meaning a 40% tax payer would incur a tax charge of £6,880 over a typical three years behind the wheel.


    The equivalent Passat 2.0 TDI 150 PS SE Business six-speed manual driver would be required to pay HMRC £7,746 over the same 36-month spell thanks to the car’s £25,675 RRP and 23% BIK rate.


    The new petrol-powered Passat models – which exactly mirror the equipment specifications of their diesel siblings on a like-for-like trim basis – will sit alongside the existing diesel engines in the extensive Passat family, and will be introduced at an RRP roughly £1,900 below their diesel equivalents, making them a compelling alternative for many buyers.


    Meanwhile, seven new petrol derivatives have also been added to the burgeoning Volkswagen Tiguan range. The 1.4-litre 125 PS TSI 2WD has been introduced on the SE and SE Nav trim lines, offering a lower entry price from just £25,000 RRP OTR into these desirable models.


    The accomplished 1.4-litre 150 PS 2WD DSG is now available on the SEL and R-Line which, priced from £29,900 RRP OTR for the SEL trim, also creates a lower entry point into these luxurious and sporty models.


    Welcoming the arrival of these new petrol engine options in two of Volkswagen’s most sought-after models Wes Withey, Volkswagen UK Product Marketing Manager, said: “Adding petrol engine options to our popular Passat family, in particular, is a great step forward.


    “Powerful, refined and frugal – these new petrol units make the Passat more accessible in terms of price, as well as further broadening the cars’ already extensive appeal.”

    These have been available all the time in Germany, is the world at last waking up to the truth on dirty diesel?
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Yeah.. but it always seem to be the motorist that gets it. Planes, trains, ferries, cruise ships buses they all throw crap out, yet its the motorist. How far will a 44 tonne truck get on a full charge. Or it might be 40 tonnes of batteries 4 tonnes of freight. Two 10 hour charges on a 200 mile trip turns a five hour truck journey in to two days.

    What the panicky story failed to mention is this was in the Conservative manifesto and being blue to the core and having nothing else to do (or is it just I is borin), I read up on this before the election. It does not mean that at midnight 31/12/2040 the pumps get turned off, it means that from then any new car registered in the UK will have to be either infernal combustion hybrid or full electric, but hey, why would the Daily Mail let the truth get in the way of a good story. I find it astonishing no one has picked up on the hybrid thing with fossil fuel, if they ban petrol engines by 2040, how do you have a hybrid? If it included hybrid, the development of them would stop tomorrow. If the pumps were turned off on that data, infrastructure investment would stop in the new few years and the system would be run down to collapse well before 2040 as no one would put any money in for years. A tanker is in use for around a decade or more so you can imagine how ropy everything would get. Plus, how do you stop someone buying a tanker and filling it with 5000 gallons, "tiss fur me own persona use orifficer, honest, guv".
    We should not be MADE to do ANYTHING, IF electric cars like the new 800v designs do work they will naturally take over the market, otherwise it means they aren't fit for purpose. I keep seeing the ******* Nissan Teef bandied around as costing bugger all pence per mile but these idiotic motoring journos fail to mention it is the UK second fastest depreciating car (along side an Infinity sister brand car) in Europe and over three years you lose circa £25K which works out to around £1 per HOUR! We can't all buy one second hand 3 years old for £11.36 (inc VAT), someone has to take the fall for the depreciation, on top of that there is no mention made of the £5K grant us Tax payers stump up for each one sold! Mad, it's all mad, all of it. MADDDDDDD
