With greater horsepower at all revs than the 1.6 litre TDI, the new Volkswagen Passat 2.0 TDI (Turbocharged Direct Injection) engine provides a powerful and responsive drive, with fuel efficiency and cost effectiveness that other car manufacturers would envy. The turbocharged injection system forces more air to be compacted into the combustion chamber at each stage, generating as much torque as you’d expect from a much larger engine. There's a choice of horsepower levels for you in the range giving you a great deal of choice: the standard 2.0 TDI 150 horsepower, the more powerful 190 horsepower version or the top of the range 240 horsepower Bi-Turbo 4 wheel drive model. The 2018 2.0 TDI engine incorporates a diesel particulate filter and common rail system. The common rail is the part of the engine that stores high pressure fuel for supply to the injector system. The intelligent design means that the fuel is delivered at higher pressure, so it combusts more efficiently and smoothly than in alternative engine systems. In order to safely generate and contain pressures of up to 1800 bar within the engine, Volkswagen has taken the step of becoming the first manufacturer to produce its own common rail systems.
Both manual and automatic versions are available with this engine type – in S, SE, SE Business, GT and R-Line specs. So whichever option of specification you choose for your Volkswagen Passat, you can be assured of benefiting from the 2.0 litre TDI engine’s high fuel efficiency, performance and value for money.
