Volkswagen of Naples is Excited to Reveal the All-New Passat – A First-In-Class Vehicle That Delivers German Engineering and Is Built in America.

The larger, sophisticated Passat, available soon
at Volkswagen of Naples located in Naples Florida, offers best-in-class rear
legroom, remarkable fuel efficiency estimated at 43 mpg with a driving
experience only Volkswagen can deliver.


“We are very excited about the All-New Passat”
comments Brian Massoll, Managing Partner of Volkswagen of Naples, www.vwofnaples.com.  “The 2012 Passat will set new benchmarks for
safety, driving performance and environmental responsibility in our Volkswagen
midsize segment.”
Designed in Germany and made in America, the Passat was developed as a larger
vehicle with premium features and handling characteristics that will perfectly
match it with the tastes and lifestyles of Americans. It will be built in
Chattanooga, Tenn., at the world’s newest, most advanced and environmentally
responsible auto assembly plant.
The new Passat, the largest ever, is the only midsize sedan that offers
superior German engineering at an accessible price. The Passat TDI — the only
clean diesel option in the segment — is expected to deliver 43 miles per
gallon on the highway, with a range of approximately 800 miles.

The new Passat offers best-in-class legroom, Volkswagen’s Care Free Maintenance
program (3 years/36,000 miles) and the safety of Volkswagen’s Intelligent Crash
Response System.
Volkswagen’s new Chattanooga plant that will produce the Passat is part of a $4
billion investment by the company in the U.S. market. The environmentally
friendly facility includes a revolutionary paint shop that significantly reduces
emissions. A state-of-the-art $40 million employee training center ensures
adherence to Volkswagen’s exacting quality standards.

Engine and Transmission
The all-new Passat offers three drivetrain options: a responsive 2.5L gasoline
engine, a remarkably eco-friendly 2.0L TDI Clean Diesel and a powerful 3.6L
VR6.
The 2.5L five cylinder engine (170 hp/177 lb.-ft.), which is being offered in
the Passat for the first time, will be mated to a standard 5 speed manual
transmission. As an alternative, the 2.5 multi port injection engine may be
paired with a 6-speed automatic.
The quiet, four cylinder 2.0L TDI Clean Diesel (140 hp/236 lb.-ft.) has the
power of a six cylinder gasoline engine and the fuel economy of a hybrid. The
Passat TDI is expected to deliver 43 miles per gallon on the highway, with a
range of approximately 800 miles. Volkswagen’s TDI clean diesel engines, which
come with a NOx storage catalytic converter, are among the cleanest engines in
the world, fulfilling emissions requirements in all 50 states. Optional on the
Passat TDI will be Volkswagen’s legendary 6-speed DSG transmission.
The 3.6 liter VR6 (280 hp/258 lb.-ft.) makes the new Passat a top-flight sport
sedan. It offers power and luxury-class driving comfort, with European-type
restraint in its fuel consumption — estimated at 28 mpg on the highway.
Gear shifting on the new Passat VR6 is handled by a standard 6-speed DSG; the
dual-clutch transmission is considered the most efficient automatic in the
world. This technologically advanced six-speed transmission incorporates an
automatic dual-clutch system that instantly engages and disengages gears
without the need for a clutch pedal. With a special computer controlling the
process, one clutch is engaged on the next gear while the clutch from the
previous gear is released. The results are crisp, quick shifts, without the
loss of power that is experienced with a traditional manual gearbox.

Premium Features
The Passat will be offered in three trim levels, S, SE and SEL, with a total of
16 equipment levels. All will offer first-in-class safety and comfort.
The Passat’s safety features include Volkswagen’s advanced Intelligent Crash
Response Systems, which initiates automatic safety protections in a collision
— the fuel supply and high consumption electronic equipment shuts off; the
doors unlock; the battery terminal disconnects from the alternator cable; the
hazard lights switch on.
The Passat also comes with a tire pressure monitoring system, ESP electronic
stabilization program, ABS with braking assistant, Hill Climb Assist (with
manual transmission), six airbags and an extremely rigid body structure to
protect the driver and passengers.
The Passat sets new standards for comfort, with a significantly larger rear
seating area, best-in-class rear seat legroom, well-designed controls and
superior touring properties.
Other standard features include automatic climate control, power windows all
around, air conditioning, insulating glass, a distinctive analog clock at the
center of the instrument panel, cruise control, outside temperature display
with frost warning, radio-CD system (MP3-capable, plus external audio input) and
Bluetooth connectivity.
Premium options include 17- and 18-inch alloy wheels, power seat adjustment,
leather, leather-trimmed multifunction steering wheel, a touchscreen satellite
radio, a choice of Volkswagen’s RNS 510 or RNS 315 navigation systems, front
fog lights with static cornering lights, wood decor, new ambiance lighting,
memory driver’s seat, power passenger seat, and keyless access with push button
start.
The Passat will also offer the new Fender premium audio system, designed
exclusively for Volkswagen. In a partnership that combined quality automotive
engineering and quality sound engineering, Volkswagen and Fender teamed up to
bring the raw emotion of live music to the driving experience.

Exterior
The Passat’s balanced proportions give it a unique, timeless and dominant
styling reflecting the “design DNA” developed by Walter de Silva, the
Italian design chief for the Volkswagen Group, and Klaus Bischoff, the German
design leader for the Volkswagen Brand. The signature clean design, with a
predominance of horizontal body elements, reinforces the Passat’s position as
the sophisticated choice in the midsize segment. The bottom line: this car
looks much more expensive than it actually is.
The key identifying feature of a strong brand is the styling of its front end.
Here the Passat displays the new horizontal brand face, with the grille and
headlights forming a single unit. Unlike models in the compact class, the
Passat’s grille is sculpted in a three-dimensional shape. Moreover, the grille stands
more upright and makes a more distinctive and elegant impression in its
stricter geometry.
From the side profile, the muscular ridge in the sill area creates a lively
interplay of light reflections. Powerfully sculpted wheel arches emphasize the
dynamic properties of the Passat. In the balance of the side profile, the roof
lines flow toward the back with a nearly coupe-like cut of the rear window.
Three side windows create luxury class style with a long, extended glass
surface.
The rear section is also dominated by horizontal lines. The lines of the large
taillights rise toward the sides, underscoring the dynamics of the elegant rear
styling. Another unique feature here is the design of the two-part taillights
(integrated in the rear fender and trunk lid).

Interior
The Passat shows the look of considerably more expensive cars. The new, larger
Passat is 191.7 inches long and has a 110.4 inch wheelbase, which translates
into a noticeable increase in rear seating space.
Like the exterior, the interior is also marked by a clean and geometric formal
structure. Interior styling consistently follows the maxims of functionality.
Controls are attractive and easy to operate.
The instrument panel is similar to that of Volkswagen’s flagship vehicle, the
all-new Touareg. Chrome trimmed gauges surround a digital multifunction
display. A high-end chrome look is also applied to the air vents in the
cockpit, and to the surrounds of the radio, navigation system and the climate
control panels. The rotary light switch and parking brake handle button are
also treated in chrome. Except for the base version, all other Passat trims
have chrome interior accents on the window, mirror adjustment and trunk opening
switches.
The upper and lower instrument areas are visually distinguished by various
decorative accents, depending on the equipment version. Decorative elements in
“Titan” design are used in the S version; the elegant “Titan
Silver Printed” decor is used in the SE version, wood decor “Autumn Nut
Burl” is featured in the exclusive SEL version. The accents not only
upgrade the instruments, but also the center console as well as the door trim
panels.
The seats are exceptionally comfortable. Even in the base version, the driver’s
seat is adjustable eight ways, including lumbar support.
The new Passat and the all-new Jetta are expected to be the sales leaders in
Volkswagen’s plan to significantly increase market share in the United States.
The company’s strategy is built on a broad portfolio of products that offers
cars accessible to the majority as well as vehicles for car enthusiasts.

Final pricing will be announced in the spring, but
the Passat will start at around $20,000 when it arrives in Volkswagen of Naples’
showroom, www.vwofnaples.com,  later this year. It will come with premium
standard features that include automatic climate control and Bluetooth
connectivity.

Volkswagen of Naples debuts a new version of the Beetle. There’s nothing radical here, but mild styling and engineering changes should make this iconic car more desirable.

The 2012 Volkswagen New Beetle, available soon at Volkswagen of Naples located in Naples Florida, will be fully redesigned. Highlights include slightly more aggressive styling, an updated interior and the return of turbocharged and diesel engines.

First, there was the original Volkswagen Beetle, a car known for being one of the most popular vehicles of all time and, of only slightly less importance, the star of The Love Bug. Then there was the vehicle sequel, the 1998 New Beetle. It was hugely popular at first, but a lack of updates over the years diminished its appeal. Now for 2012, there’s finally a new, era, New Beetle.

“We are very excited Volkswagen has taken a cautious approach in terms of design” comments Brian Massoll, General Sales Manager of Volkswagen of Naples. “And, actually we are just calling the car “Beetle.” The overall look is still unmistakable, but there’s now a lower profile and a front windshield that is shifted farther back. The new Beetle coupe is 3.3 inches wider and 6 inches longer than the outgoing model. Inside, VW has drawn upon elements from the original Beetle, such as incorporating two glove boxes.

The 2012 Volkswagen Beetle will be available in two trim lines: Design and Sport. Options will include a Fender premium audio system, a panoramic sunroof and bi-xenon headlights. The engine lineup is similar to the one you’ll find in the latest Jetta. It includes a 170-horsepower 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine, a 140-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder TDI clean diesel and a 200-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. Transmission choices, depending on the engine, include a five-speed manual, a six-speed automatic and a six-speed dual-clutch automated manual.

These updates will no doubt restore some luster to the Beetle and make it a more appealing choice for an affordable small coupe. The 2012 VW Beetle’s launch will be later this fall. Please contact Volkswagen of Naples for further additional information and complete buying advice.
