mne159Comments Off on New volkswagen passat and adaptive cruise control .Adaptive Cruise Control, or ACC, is just what it sounds like. While regular cruise control simply holds a speed you set, ACC maintains the following distance automatically using your front sensors. This means that if the person in front of you slows down, your Volkswagen will slow down too without the need to cancel cruise control and reset it. The latest generation of adaptive cruise control ACC incorporates predictive cruise control. Up until now, the system in the Passat was a pure Adaptive Cruise Control system. This proven feature will also be offered in the new Passat. From now on, the new, predictive ACC will be available as an additional option.

Emergency Steering Assist also debuts in the new Passat, which uses the brakes to maintain vehicle control during “sudden evasive manoeuvres”, while vision is improved with the available new Matrix LED headlights, dubbed ‘IQ.Light’. Aesthetically, the updated Passat gets new bumpers front and rear, a revised ‘Passat’ rear logo, along with redesigned LED head- and tail-light units now included as standard. Vehicles fitted with the Matrix LED IQ.Light system also get sweeping indicators at the front and rear. The second-gen Active Info Display now measures 11.7 inches, and offers “better graphic performance, greater pixel density, improved brightness and contrast as well as more intense colours” – as you may have gathered, it’s better than the last one. The wider range is available with a total of seven powertrains (three petrol, four diesel) if you exclude the aforementioned GTE. Petrol power comes in the form of the 110kW 1.5 TSI, the 140kW 2.0 TSI, and the 200kW 2.0 TSI. Meanwhile, there’s an 88kW 1.6 TDI, a 110kW 2.0 TDI Evo, a 140kW 2.0 TDI and the 176kW 2.0 TDI (bi-turbo).
