Volkswagen Australia has begun rolling out a modest update to its Passat range, which gains an upgraded version of the company's 2.0 litre turbodiesel.
Fuel consumption has also been improved in the upgrade, dropping 0.3 litres to 5.4 l/100km on the combined cycle for the Passat wagon and CC.
The Passat sedan's usage drops 0.1 to 5.6 l/100km, while the Alltrack's 6.3 l/100km figures remain unchanged.
The slight power increase brings a corresponding name change, with updated models now referred to by the 130TDI moniker.
New prices are $44,490 for the Passat 130TDI Highline sedan, $46,490 for the wagon equivalent, $47,790 for the Alltrack (unchanged), and $55,490 for the CC 130TDi.
(All prices exclude on-road costs).
