The Volkswagen 1.6 Turbocharged Direct Injection (TDI) engine is included as an option across the entire range of new Passat Saloons and Estates. It brings together energy efficiency and fuel economy, with high responsiveness and power. Combined with Volkswagen’s energy efficient BlueMotion technology, these engines are designed to enhance the driver’s enjoyment of every journey, and make the cars even more cost-effective to own if you're a higher mileage driver. The TDI works by injecting greater amounts of air into the cylinders, which means the Passat has greater horsepower even with a smaller engine. The air is drawn through the turbocharger, cooled before being squeezed into the combustion chamber under enormous pressure. When the dense air comes into contact with the fuel, the resulting collision produces the engine’s immense power, propelling the car forwards at the touch of the gas pedal.
The Passat 1.6 TDI engine also includes built-in sound insulation, minimising the sound heard inside the car while the engine is running. And vibrations from the road are dampened with hydraulic engine mounts, making the ride extremely smooth and quiet, even at higher speeds. The TDI uses exhaust gases to drive the turbocharger, which increases its energy efficiency and reduces its emissions. Also, the engine includes a diesel particulate filter (DPF), which catches even the smallest dirt particles and makes the engine’s emissions much cleaner than previous diesel models. The Passat 1.6 TDI engine uses a DPF which is practically maintenance free. It generally only requires an inspection after 100,000 miles, depending on fuel quality and driving style.
