Volkswagen has released official fuel figures for its Passat range, as the all-new for 2015 model goes on sale to the German market.

As expected, the German carmaker’s Passat Bluemotion variants enter as the most frugal options, bettering even the low 4.0 l/100km claimed by the previous model.

In its new-generation form, the Passat Bluemotion claims just 3.7 l/100km, while emitting 95g/km of CO2. The figure applies to sedan and wagon both.

That puts it squarely in hybrid territory, and even betters the 3.9 l/100km figure of Toyota’s smaller Prius hatch.

The Bluemotion is powered by a 1.6 litre diesel engine producing 88kW/250Nm, matched with a six-speed manual transmission.

From rest, the Bluemotion sedan can hit 100km/h in 10.8 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 210km/h, while the wagon is 0.2 seconds and 2km/h slower respectively.

Fuel consumption is helped by an active radiator grille, which is designed to improve aerodynamics and can close the grille slots to ensure optimum running temperature for the engine, along with low-drag 16-inch alloy wheels.

Pricing for the Passat Bluemotion in the German market starts at €29,425 (AU$41,417) for the sedan and €30,500 (AU$42,930) for the wagon.

Australian buyers are not expected to see the Passat Bluemotion range in local showrooms at this stage, when the 2015 Passat arrives around the end of this year.

Currently, all diesel Passat models in Australia are powered by a 2.0 litre turbocharged unit matched with a DSG automatic transmission, which offer a best fuel figure of 5.6 l/100km.

Volkswagen is yet to confirm timing, pricing and features for its new Passat in Australia, but a late 2015 debut is expected.
